New Danley installation in Wisconsin

Polar Focus Ultimate Line Array Rigging for Danley Sound Labs

Scott Tomashek from Camera Corner Connecting Point and his crew did a great job installing this sound and video system in an insurance company presentation space in Wisconsin.

CCCP 2

This system includes five curved video screens that raise and lower on a winching system, and 11 Danley Sound Labs, Inc. speakers. There were five pairs of SH69 Danleys, each with independent pan and tilt. The lower speaker within each grouping also had separate tilt adjustment, for precision coverage control.

CCCP 1

At the center is a 500 pound BC415 subwoofer for terrific low frequency coverage. Polar Focus provided roof attachment, pan and tilt adjustment for each pair of speakers, custom grouping plates to create clusters as pairs, and custom rigging to plant the subwoofer exactly in the middle. The end result was beautiful and sounded great too.

Excellent work Scott and the guys at Camera Corner!

Each of the four clusters were lifted up complete (with speakers installed) on a crane and installed onto support columns built to support the Polar Focus frame system.  Check out the view of Lake Erie and the wind turbines in the distance.

The complete framing system was galvanized to withstand harsh Buffalo winters, then powder coated in UV resistant white to match the towers.

Each of the four clusters consists of three Danley GH-60 Genesis Horns, a Danley SH-95 for center fill, four Danley SH-MINIs for fill right below the cluster, and two Danley TH-118 subwoofers.

The Buffalo area gets some serious weather and wind from Lake Erie.  Many of the old loudspeakers at Ralph Wilson Stadium had been destroyed from weather exposure after 10 years.

If you look closely, you can see the four Danley SH-Micros, installed on each tower to provide under-balcony coverage.

These line arrays are ready for some serious weather, as they are left in place year round.

Both line arrays have tilt adjustment within the gimbal frame, with 3-axes adjustable anchoring at the bottom of the line array so it won’t ever sway in the wind.  Each gimbal frame has adjustable pan control.

Product Spotlight – Zbeam Stem

Fulcrum Acoustics Loudspeaker flown with Polar Focus Zbeam Stem and Yoke.

We’d like to share an excellent video from Infocomm 2015, showing off our Zbeam Stem product.

The hollow characteristic of the Stem component allows the speaker signal wire to be chased through the Stem body – allowing the speaker junction box and the upper arm of the Zbeam® Universal Speaker Rigging Beam to hang neatly inside the ceiling allowing for our cleanest Zbeam installation to date.

If this or any of our products can help with your flown speaker installation, call our Audio Rigging Consultants at (413) 586-4444.
