Community Pro IV6 line array, Polar Focus rigging

Polar Focus rigging for Community Professional Loudspeakers IV6 line array

Community Loudspeakers is here at WFX to introduce the new IV6 line array product family. Polar Focus is at WFX to support Community’s efforts to introduce this product to the marketplace. This new product family from Community utilizes a Polar Focus line array frame with infinite tilt adjustability and full compatibility with all of the Polar Focus line array accessories and structure attachment products.

The team at Community did an excellent job creating a line array that both sounds and looks great. With 13 sound systems in the line array show at WFX, Community’s product line was by far the best-looking, and cleanest line array product there. As many pro users know, a lot of line arrays can have a strongly mechanical or visually cluttered look with pronounced logos and a lot of visible hardware.

Each IV6 module has 54 combinations of switchable settings for either box attenuation or horn attenuation. This means that an entire line array can be run passively from a single amplifier. Community has engaged the creators of the Ease Focus program to create a new version just for predicting the correct settings on their modules.

When you combine the high quality of this system, Community’s always competitive pricing and their worldwide distribution network, we think this is going to be a big hit in the marketplace. Go Team Community!

Reformation Lutheran Church

Polar Focus rigging for JBL Professional VT4886 line arrays

Paul Colella of McClelland Sound in Wichita asked Polar Focus to design rigging for this installation at Reformation Lutheran Church.

This cluster utilized 10 JBL Professional VT4886 line array modules as a main cluster, 1 JBL AC2895 as a fill box, and a Danley Sound Labs, Inc. TH118i subwoofer. All of the speakers were supported from a steel I beam in a recessed cavity behind sheetrock at the peak of the roof. The line array was interesting in that we used hidden counterweights on the front of the line array frame to avoid using a pull back. Of course, the main cluster has infinitely adjustable tilt under load.

Clean installation with custom color on speakers and rigging by Paul and his team.

Ravena School System Installation

Polar Focus rigging for JBL PD6322

This beautiful system in Ravena, NY was installed by Ronco Communications & Specialized, led by Scott Hall. The job used JBL Professional PD6322/66 loudspeakers in a transverse format. It was desirable to use these speakers with yokes, but the speakers did not have yoke holes at the center of gravity.

Polar Focus designed laser plate adapters for the ends of the speakers, to present yoke holes and then fabricated custom matching yokes. The yokes were supported by the Polar Focus Stem product, which allowed for a clean penetration through the ceiling panel, and acted as a cable raceway so no signal cable was visible. This system looks and sounds terrific. Good work by Scott and the gang at Ronco!

Polar Focus rigging for Bose RoomMatch

Polar Focus rigging for Bose Roommatch

Southland Baptist Temple contacted Mark Lowrance of Lowrance Sound Company, Inc. of Union City, Tennessee to upgrade their sound system. Mark utilized a design with Bose Professional RoomMatch line array modules in a left and right configuration, along with a downfiring RMS-123 model subwoofer on each side.


Additional speakers from Bose were used as choir fills. Mark chose Polar Focus for our family of wood beam brackets for super clean installation. Polar Focus also offered an aftermarket line array frame for the Bose RoomMatch with integral tilt control and a full range of accessories. Using a Custom Beam Attachment to connect to the wood beams with a structural extension post that was also a cable raceway resulted in a very clean and safe installation. This system looks great and sounds better!

The team at Lowrance Sound specializes in high quality sound systems installed well.

Stewart Independent Production Turns to Polar Focus

Polar Focus EN750-CTK - Single Point Mount for Crank Towers

12 December, 2016

SAUGATUCK, MI – Shannon Stewart of Stewart Independent Production was seeking a better solution than conventional rigging allows when flying a line array on a lift tower. He found the solution with the Polar Focus Spine Frame Adapter. “The Spine Frame Adapter design is flawless in its ease of attachment, pan and tilt capability and control,” Stewart explains. “The mounting bracket goes on the tower in seconds securely and with redundant safety chains.”

Says Shannon Stewart of Stewart Independent Production, “When flying line array from Genie ST20 Super Towers, or any lift tower for that matter, we wanted a better solution than conventional rigging allows. We want fast consistent, safe, rigid rigging points that allow for great pan and tilt capabilities that can easily be adjusted on the ground or at trim and easily matched tower to tower.”

Stewart says they contacted Polar Focus Rigging and found their solution with the Spine Frame Adapter. “They have a very cool crank tower line array mount with a spine frame that allows for two in-line rigging points and everything we were looking for as mentioned above and more.”

The crank-lift mounting bracket holds up to 800 lbs. It is custom fabricated based on comparing tower manufacturer specs with the measurement of actual fork-play in the client’s own lift towers of the same model.

“The Spine Frame Adapter design is flawless in its ease of attachment, pan and tilt capability and control,” Stewart explains. “The mounting bracket goes on the tower in seconds securely and with redundant safety chains.”

Stewart adds, “Everyone on crew is not only impressed, they are grateful for the new rigging tools from Polar Focus. It is not often that everyone on any crew is grateful, so we can’t say enough good about this product and the company’s design and fabrication capacity.”
