Schar Center, Elon University

Todd Foster from Fulcrum Acoustic introduced us to Brian Cox from Audio & Light in Greensboro, NC. Brian needed assistance rigging these clusters at the Schar Center at Elon University.

Polar Focus custom rigging for Fulcrum Acoustic Loudspeakers

Each of the eight main clusters has a total of three Fulcrum Acoustic AH-96 loudspeakers, and one CS121 subcardioid subwoofer. The total cluster weight is 723 lbs.

Polar Focus provided all of the rigging gear, and PE stamped drawings for the state of NC. We are especially proud that the 8 main clusters were packaged fully assembled and fit neatly onto two skids at 96″ x 30″.

We also supplied rigging for five fill speakers, which were Fulcrum Acoustic DX1226. This new system looks and sounds great!

US Steel Tariffs

A note on rising steel prices due to recent US tariffs:  Our steel vendors have already begun to contact us about limited availability, price increases, and price volatility in the steel industry.

Polar Focus is committed to providing the safest and highest quality rigging hardware systems and components and will continue to do so. We added a ‘steel surcharge’ in our system today for those instances where a markup would be necessary. We will keep working with our vendors to ensure we get the best steel prices we can.

Chandelier of Sound for Purdue University

Polar Focus rigging for Purdue University

Here are a few great images of the Purdue Football system we posted about a few days ago. Polar Focus supplied the complete structure, supporting the four Fulcrum Acoustic FL283 line arrays, two Fulcrum US 221-2 subwoofers and four 70″ Sharp screens.Purdue Weight Room

Some of these photos show the load distribution system, which spread the load of all of this equipment across multiple stepped roof trusses.

The total weight of the entire assembly is 2772 lbs! The load distribution system was almost as nice as the main AV rigging.

Our Saviors Church

Polar Focus rigging for Our Savior Church

Polar Focus assisted Video Services, Inc. of Mankato, MN on this Peterson AV Consulting, Inc. project. We provided three type 4 Custom Beam Attachments for the steeply rolled purlin that would suspend these Fulcrum Acoustic loudspeakers.

Our Saviors collage

The design utilized one Fulcrum GX1226 and two Fulcrum CX896 speakers mounted in matching yokes. This rolled purlin had the steepest roll angle of any type 4 CBA installation we’ve ever done. Looks great, sounds great!

Line array rigging for Sinnissippi Music Shell

Polar Focus rigging for Sinnissippi Music Shell

Mik Moore of Clearwing Productions contacted us for this challenging line array installation rigging used at the Sinnissippi Music Shell in Rockford, IL.

Sinissippi

The speakers were 3 L-Acoustics SB15m subwoofers, along with 10 KIVA II mid-hi boxes as a center cluster. The cluster needed to be weather rated as it is left installed from late spring through early autumn. The square frame at the top allows for an installation hoist to lift the cluster into position; after set up the hoist can be removed.

At the end of the performance season, the procedure is reversed. Braces from the bottom of the cluster to left and right wood beams lock off the cluster and keep it from swinging in the wind.

Sinnissippi Drawing
This is a beautiful facility with a great sounding system. Great job by Mik and his team!
