On Point Audio, Inc., an innovative designer and builder of professional loudspeaker systems, is introducing the OPA-28 NP at prolight+sound 2011 in Halle 8.0 booth # J70 C in Frankfurt, Germany.
The OPA-28 NP is a high-output dual 8-inch coaxial speaker system housed in a small enclosure with a very slim silhouette. Using On Point Audio’s exclusive Narrow-ProfileTM driver technology, the system features two woofers with 8-inch cones that have a diameter of only 6.8 inches / 172.72 mm. The system also includes a powerful, coaxially mounted 1.35-inch (34.3 mm) pure titanium compression driver. Thanks to these revolutionary 8-inch drivers, the outside width of the OPA-28 NP’s enclosure is only 7.3 inches / 185.4 mm, making it the slimmest dual 8-inch full-range system available.
The OPA-28 NP features 400 watts continuous, 1,600 watts peak power handling. Thanks to its high power handling and sensitivity, the OPA-28 NP is capable of delivering 127 dB maximum output from an enclosure only 18.4 x 7.3 x 8.1 in / 467.4 x 185.4 x 205.7 mm (H x W x D). The OPA-28 NP’s acoustic output / size ratio is one of the highest in the professional audio industry.
The OPA-28 NP’s enclosure is built of 12 mm birch plywood and is very rigidly braced and well damped. The enclosure is equipped with 10 x M8 suspension points that accommodate optional low-cost eyebolts, a pivoting U-Bracket as well as other mounting hardware for specialized applications. The enclosure is equipped with a heavy-gauge, acoustically transparent steel grille and is coated in On Point Audio’s PowerCoatTM, a rugged, tough yet attractive external finish.
The OPA-28 NP’s input section features two Neutrik Speakon connectors as well as a 4-position barrier strip, making it usable for mobile or fixed install applications.
The OPA-28 NP’s coaxially mounted compression driver features 80-degree conical radiation so that the system can be placed horizontally or vertically without changing its coverage pattern.
The OPA-28 NP’s vented enclosure and well-designed drivers deliver very smooth response to the limits of audibility. Like all On Point Audio products, careful attention was paid to minimizing spurious acoustic and mechanical resonances to ensure accurate vocal intelligibility, excellent musical clarity and timbre.
“The OPA-28 NP’s unique combination of pristine sound, superb power handling capability, high output and slim, elegant enclosure is unmatched. Our dealers and customers will be thrilled by this product” says On Point Audio president and founder Doug MacCallum.
