This Clever Trick Solves A Big Problem
Like so many things in pro audio, the mounting hardware for speakers that go on tripods is not standardized. Some major speaker manufacturers use a 1 3/8″ mounting hole. Other’s have adopted a 1 1/2″ fitting.
We were in the sound system rental business for many hears and had speakers that used both sizes. Consequently, making sure that a rental customer had a compatible-sized tripod was always a problem.
OnStage Stands solved this problem in a really cleaver way. The inside tube of the tripod is 1 3/8″ on one end and 1 1/2″ on the other. You just pull the inner tube out of the tripod and flip it over if the size is wrong.
|These stands feature all aluminum tubing, and unbreakable fittings. They’ve got a tough black powder coat finish and adjust to heights up to 80 in. They’ll support speaker loads up to 120 lbs. regardless of the size of the mounting hardware.|
