Greensboro, NC — December 2006 — WorxAudio Technologies, a leading manufacturer of loudspeaker systems for the pro touring and install markets, proudly introduces the TrueAim Grid suspension system. Designed for use in permanent installations, the TrueAim Grid utilizes an innovative design that greatly simplifies the process of flying the TrueLine V8 and V10 Series compact line array system and, in the process, creates a streamlined, uncluttered look that greatly enhances the appearance of the loudspeaker system.
Every installer has struggled with the issue of adjusting the center of gravity when flying a loudspeaker array, and the new TrueAim Grid addresses this common problem head-on. When flying an array, each loudspeaker element that gets added typically causes the entire system to change its center of gravity. To address this situation, the new TrueAim Grid incorporates a manual screw mechanism with a large, easy to rotate adjustment knob—enabling the installer to easily level the system as each new loudspeaker element is added. Control of the upward/downward angle is easily adjusted by making clockwise/counterclockwise rotations of the knob.
Suspending the entire loudspeaker array is an equally streamlined process. Utilizing a single industry-standard schedule 40 pipe for the loudspeaker array’s suspension, the TrueAim Grid incorporates a unique pipe coupler that connects to the grid’s adjustable crossbeam and facilitates both left and right adjustment. Further, the pipe coupler has an exit point through which the array’s wiring can pass. By running the wire through the pipe and exiting via the coupler, the line array’s audio and power lines are hidden from view and visible only at the back of the system—creating a clean, uncluttered appearance free from the distractions of visible cable. For added convenience, the entire system can attach to a beam clamp.
WorxAudio Technologies’ TrueAim Grid suspension system is as heavy duty as its appearance is streamlined. The grid can safely fly up to twenty-four TrueLine V8 enclosures—better than 2,500 pounds, with an 8:1 safety factor. The TrueAim Grid suspension system is available in black or white to best match the aesthetics of the environment.
Also available for the TrueAim Grid suspension system is the optional monitor yoke. This innovative accessory enables the mounting of a single V8 enclosure that can be positioned as a down-firing monitor system for the performing talent. By incorporating the monitor yoke onto the rear of the flown array, performers can take advantage of a potent monitor without being encumbered by yet another loudspeaker at their feet that reduces the amount of on-stage real estate.
Hugh Sarvis, WorxAudio Technologies’ CEO and Director of Engineering, commented on the company’s new TrueAim Grid, “The TrueAim Grid presents installers with a single point attachment system for flying a sizeable V8 line array. Visually, this is a very clean-looking system—free from unsightly chain or wire rope—that is ideal for convention centers, houses of worship, arenas, and similar venues where wires and chains would visually detract from the appearance of the facility. The TrueAim Grid greatly simplifies installation, with the end result being a loudspeaker array that blends seamlessly into the environment.”
The new V8i TrueAim Grid suspension system carries a MSRP of $1,881.00 and the V10i TrueAim Grid suspension system carries a MSRP of $2,870.81. Both models are available now.
