First ever installation of Meyer Leopard line arrays for the lucky congregation at Gateway Fellowship.  Polar Focus Type 4 Custom Beam Attachment and Seismic Stem were used to fly these clusters.

Meyer Sound engineers were on hand for system tuning, as this was the first ever installation of the new Meyer Leopard line arrays. They had praise for Polar Focus products and said this was the cleanest installation they had ever seen.

Beautiful installation!

The Roof Attachment to a rolled wood purlin is using our state of the art Type 4 Custom Beam Attachment. Pan and tilt of the line array is, of course, fully adjustable under full load.

A closer look at Polar Focus roof attachment for the Meyer Leopard clusters.

The Seismic Post has a large universal joint on top, allowing lateral motion of the building in the event of an earthquake. The universal joint enables the Seismic Post to pivot with the building movement, without putting torque on the roof beam. Power and signal cables are routed through the 10 foot Seismic Post, allowing for the cleanest look possible.

JBL VRX Line Arrays at NYU Law

Polar Focus Wall Mounts and Blackbird frame for JBL VRX line arrays at NYU School of Law.

Great photos of a recent install of JBL line arrays at the Tishman Auditorium at New York University School of Law.  Polar Focus worked with Jim Anderson at HB Communications in North Haven, CT to supply Wall Mounts and our Blackbird frame, an aftermarket frame for JBL VRX 932 and 918S series line arrays.

Polar Focus Wall Mounts and Blackbird frame for JBL VRX line arrays at NYU School of Law.
Polar Focus supplied Wall Mounts and our Blackbird frame for JBL VRX line arrays at the Tishman Auditorium at New York University School of Law.

Designed for increased functionality and lower installation cost, the OJB-VRX-932 is a replacement array frame for the JBL VRX-AF used with the JBL VRX-932/918S loudspeaker family. The OJB-VRX- 932 fastens to the loudspeakers using the M10 threaded holes in the top of the JBL speakers, bypassing the lighter weight clips between speakers. The bolt-in method also addresses potential erosion on the aluminum JBL VRX-AF frame by those steel clips at the area of steel to aluminum contact.

The OJB-VRX-932 features infinitely adjustable tilt control while under load without requiring re-rigging the cluster, or using chain hoists. When attached to supporting XY Grid® family hardware, the OJB-VRX-932 can be pan adjusted in seconds without
re-rigging anything.
