On Point Audio Introduces Suspension Accessories For Its Speaker Lineup

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 January 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.”


HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
