Immersive cinema ceiling speaker formats provide an exciting experience for theatergoers that compliment traditional surround systems. The benefits are huge but perplexing questions include, how can these be installed liability-free and installed quickly to limit auditorium down time? Adaptive, an early global pioneer in the mounting of cinema surround loudspeakers, has addressed these needs by creating an easy to install Ceiling Speaker Grid System. Stargrid is comprised of a floating suspended overhead frame that anchors to the roof structure just above a dropped ceiling and supports ceiling speakers that are secured and aimed from below the dropped ceiling. Load-rated down-drops serve as conduits for signal wire and safety cables to the speakers for a clean and secure speaker installation.
