kiT Series Top Bar
kiT Top Bars derive their origin from the classic
Clair rigging featured on the world renowned
S4 and R4 systems. A pair of top bars slide
into kiT Corners in either vertical or horizontal
orientations. 1/2” shackles connect directly to
one of the seven holes to achieve the desired
hang angle.
kiT Series Coupling Link
kiT Coupling Links offer a simple, aesthetically
pleasing method of creating a tight trap-pack of
pairs of kiT Series cabinets. Quick release pins
or bolts assemblies are used at the rear to lock
for mobile or install applications, respectively.
kiT Series Mounting Bracket
Compatible with kiT12, kiT12+, kiT15, kiT15+,
the kiT-MB offers rigid mounting option to surface
or ceiling mount kiT Point Source products. The
speaker tilt range is greater than 90°.
