On Point Audio Introduces The World’s Smallest High Output Dual 8-Inch Speaker System

On Point Audio, an innovative designer and builder of top-class professional loudspeaker systems, is premiering the OPA28 NP at NAMM 2012 in booth #6894 in Anaheim, California.

The high-output OPA28 NP dual 8-inch coaxial speaker system is the world’s smallest dual 8-inch full-range speaker system — only 18.4 in (467.3 mm) high, 7.3 inches (185.4 mm) wide and 8.1 inches (205.74 mm) deep. It’s diminutive size is made possible by On Point Audio’s revolutionary Narrow-ProfileTM 8-inch drivers which are only 6.8 inches (172.72 mm) in diameter. The system also employs a powerful, coaxially mounted 1.35-inch / 34.3 mm pure titanium compression driver.

The OPA28 NP is capable of delivering 127 dB maximum output thanks to its 400 watt continuous, 1,600 watt peak power handling and remarkably high sensitivity. Its acoustic output / size ratio is one of the highest in the professional audio industry.

Like all On Point Audio speakers, careful attention was paid to minimizing spurious acoustic and mechanical resonances in the OPA28 NP to ensure accurate vocal intelligibility, excellent musical clarity and timbre. The OPA28 NP’s is smooth and very accurate.

The OPA28 NP’s enclosure is made of rigidly braced 12 mm birch plywood and is equipped with 14 x M8 metal reinforced suspension points that enable use of eyebolts, a pivoting U-Bracket and other optional suspension hardware for specialized applications. The enclosure is coated with On Point Audio’s PowerCoatTM, a rugged yet attractive external finish and is equipped with a heavy-gauge, CNC steel grille.

The OPA28 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 OPA28 NP’s input section features two Neutrik Speakon connectors and a 4-position barrier strip, for use in mobile or fixed installation applications.

“The OPA28 NP’s unique combination of pristine sound, superb power handling, high output capability, incredible flexibility and slim, elegant enclosure is unmatched. Our dealers and customers will be thrilled by this competitively unique, high-value product,” says On Point Audio president and founder Doug MacCallum.
