Have you ever used our Tilt Cable Kits? Designed for installation or portable use, the adjustable Tilt Cable Kit is a companion to the Zbeam, XY Grid components or is used as a stand-alone speaker rigging kit. It provides rapid tilt control for single loudspeakers or a group of loudspeakers locked together. The ratcheting action of the Clutch Lock allows for tilt adjustments to be completed in just seconds. Check out our how-to video:

Bracket for Danley JH-90

Polar Focus Weatherized Bracket for Danley Sound Labs JH-90

Here’s a bracket with full tilt control for the amazing 720 pound Danley Sound Labs, Inc. JH90 speaker. The Danley JH-90 “Jericho Horn” has six 18″ drivers, six 6″ midrange drivers and three coaxial high frequency drivers with 1.4″ exits coupled to Danley’s patented layered high frequency combiner. This is going to be installed by McClelland Sound at the Dodge City Memorial Stadium in Dodge City, Kansas. When mounted to the top of a W10x49 column, the speaker will have full pan and tilt control and can be locked into position.

The complete bracket system will be disassembled, hot dip galvanized for corrosion protection, reassembled with stainless steel hardware, and shipped to the customer.

We hope they enjoy their totally awesome new sound system over in Dodge City!

EAW Speaker Cluster Assembly for Barclays Center

Three EAW line arrays with Motor Zbeam rigging at the Barclays Center.

This lighthearted video shows the assembly process for a large speaker cluster (one of six clusters) in the Barclays Center, the new home of the Brooklyn Nets, formerly the N.J. Nets.  These speaker clusters are being pre-staged for rapid installation, avoiding contaminating the speakers on the dirt floor of the construction site. This was built
by Polar Focus, under contract with Parsons Electric.

Polar Focus built six clusters for the Barclays Center, each containing 10 EAW KF740‘s and 4 EAW SB1001‘s.  The speaker weight (without rigging hardware) for each cluster is 1680 lbs.

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.

Product Spotlight – New Pole Mount Design

Polar Focus PM2-10-Z shown with Community R.15

Infocomm 2015 in Orlando was as busy, exciting and informative as it always is. We enjoyed the opportunity to talk with everyone who stopped by our booth!  We hope you made great connections and learned some things you can use in your business immediately.

Our newly designed Pole Mount, the PM2-10-Z, is designed for use with tapered poles from 4″ – 10″ in diameter.  If you ever have to pole mount speakers, lights, or video screens on permanent poles or poles in tents, you will like this great new product!  Pole sizes larger than 10″ can be accommodated with a custom chain kit.  Call us if you’re not sure which PM product is best for your application.
