On Point Audio, an innovative designer and builder of top-class professional loudspeaker systems, is introducing a line of suspension accessories that enable its range of powered and passive speakers to be suspended safely and cost-effectively. On Point Audio will be exhibiting its line of products at NAMM 2012 in booth #6894 in Anaheim, California Janu ary 19 – 23, 2012.
All of On Point Audio’s Front-Of-House speaker systems are equipped with various configurations of M8 or M10 inserts that allow the use of several suspension accessories. These inserts are structurally reinforced with heavy-duty steel that ensures a safety factor greater than 8:1. This high a safety factor means more peace-of-mind when enclosures are suspended overhead.
For each model, On Point Audio offers optional M8 and M10 Eye Bolt Kits each comprised of 4 x 304-grade stainless steel, forged-shoulder eye bolts for use with safety-rated suspension materials.
Additionally, there are optionally available U-Brackets that can be used for wall or ceiling mounting horizontally or vertically. The U-Brackets are made of heavy-duty, e-coated 304-grade stainless steel. On Point Audio’s U-Brackets also include all necessary hardware for attaching the bracket to the speaker.
The On Point Audio OPA 15 NP is a wide-range 15-inch two-way system with a fully rotatable High-Q 60o x 40o horn. To enable use of the OPA 15 NP in large-scale applications and installations, On Point Audio offers the optional Fly-NP array bracket. The Fly-NP allows two OPA 15 NP’s to be arrayed together to achieve higher output and wider coverage.
In addition to their range of inserts for flying and installations, all portable On Point Audio systems are also equipped with 35-mm (1-3/8-inch) pole mount sockets for use in portable applications.
“The On Point Audio range of Passive and ACTIVE speakers are incredibly flexible thanks to their built-in inserts, pole mounts and the assortment of Eye Bolt Kits, U-Brackets and Array Brackets we offer,” says On Point Audio president and founder Doug MacCallum. “For portable use, for rental and for fixed installation, there is a On Point Audio model that will deliver accurate, detailed sound, excellent output and the flexibility necessary to do the job very well.”
