A B ORBIT Orbital Boom Swivel Tensioning and Positioning ORBIT booms utilize patented technology that offers a wider range of tensioning than conventional boom arms. ORBIT precision tensioning allows you to use the gamut of microphones, from small ‘pencils’ to heavy large diaphragm condensers, and dial in the perfect action and hold for every mic. The large knurled rings positioned just behind the O2 ball housings are Course Tensioners. These tensioners should only be tightened if the O2 ball swivels loose tension over time. Loosen the small hex set screw (A) before adjusting the tension of the O2 ball swivels. 3, 90º Set Crenels A 1, 150º Set Crenel for further reach or storage. ORBIT 2 The housings have 4 Compass Point crenels. One crenel is notched deeper for a greater range-of-motion (150°). The deeper position also allows the boom arm to be secured in a straight, parallel position for storage ORBIT 2 Boom Center Swivel 2 O In addition to its dual orbital boom arms, ORBIT 2 booms utilize a unique Center Swivel that adds a pivot point with an additional 150° range-of-motion. ORBIT Boom Weight-bearing Limits ORBIT booms have been tested to reliably suspend microphones weighing up to 3 pounds. Regardless, users must use discretion regarding microphone weight, boom length and counterweight positioning.
