How our Products Work

Polar Focus products are designed to allow for the focus of a loudspeaker or
cluster in a polar coordinate frame. Polar coordinate frames have parameters of
pan and tilt in typical loudspeaker terminology, latitude and longitude in
navigation, pitch and yaw in aeronautics, and θ1 and θ2 (pronounced theta one and
theta two) in calculus. The Polar Focus logo is a mathematical definition of pan and
tilt.

Prior to the development of the Polar Focus product line, common
loudspeaker rigging techniques and equipment resulted in very poor ability to aim
loudspeakers. Aiming control frequently resulted in undesirable interactions
between the pan and tilt angles of different speakers within a speaker cluster.
Most Polar Focus products separate pan and tilt control to allow ease of
aiming while under load, with no undesirable mechanical interactions. Modern
loudspeakers and line arrays have precision dispersion pattern control that requires
this fast and accurate aiming.
