On Point Audio has introduced new powered loudspeaker systems, including the OPA-10 Active 10-inch two-way model, the OPA-15 Active 15-inch two-way model, and the OPA-Sub Active, an 18-inch subwoofer.

The complete On Point Audio range will be exhibited at the upcoming 2011 Winter NAMM show, booth 1664, in Anaheim this January.

The new systems combine 2,000 watts of class-D amplification, sophisticated digital signal processing, high-quality transducers and robust enclosures to create easy-to-use, self-contained systems.

Features of the OPA-10 Active include comfort-lift handles, a metal pole mount, plus 10 x M10 fly points.

The OPA-15 Active has a built-in stand mount adaptor and 7 x M10 fly points, plus its specially-shaped enclosure allows it to also be used as a floor monitor.

The lightweight (88 pound) OPA-Sub Active features heavy-duty casters for easy moving and comes with a height-adjustable mounting pole for suspension of full-range systems.

A number of optional accessories are available, including eyebolt kits and U-Brackets to make it easy and cost-effective to suspend systems.

One of the most unique aspects of the line is the Narrow-Profile NP15N 15-inch woofer that is only 14-inches wide (355 mm). On Point Audio engineering was able to ‘shrink’ the woofer’s size by making its frame rectangular instead of circular and by utilizing a new type of surround.

The 3,200-watt Narrow-Profile woofer has a large 4-inch (101.6 mm) voice coil that compliments its unique narrow-profile design. The NP15N woofer is used in the OPA-15 Active, as well as other 15-inch models in the line.

“We designed the OPA Active series from the ground up to perform in real world, live sound environments where high output and pristine sound are required,” says On Point president Doug MacCallum. “With their high-performance drivers, built-in class-D amplification and digital signal processing, we feel that musicians, club sound engineers and DJ’s will appreciate the high quality, cost-effective speakers that On Point Audio offers.”
