Polar Focus GK-SFA Genie Kit

Polar Focus GK-SFA Genie Kit

FOH Staff
New Gear

Designed for portable use, the GK-SFA combines Polar Focus’ XY Grid system and the aiming of its Spine Frame Adapter to let users precisely aim their line array from a Genie (or similar) tower. The Spine Frame Adapter (lower half of assembly) provides infinitely adjustable tilt control to any line array that uses the common front-to-back “spine” support frame. The line array tilt is adjustable under full load with a 9/16-inch wrench, and can be locked down. The pan angle of the line array is controlled and adjusted by a heavy-duty friction bearing. The working load limit is 637 to 1,000 pounds depending on the arm separation spacing.
