MIC BOOM ADAPTOR: mounts to the top of a PA6BT, PA6S, PA6SR or HS7. The MBA microphone boom and speaker mount adapter allows most microphone booms to be mounted on the top of the Hot Spot to eliminate the need for a stand for the Hot Spot and a stand for the microphone and boom. Works With 3/8" & 1/2" mic boom.
The HOT SPOT monitor series has been the world’s number one personal monitor since it's invention in 1970. There are two basic concepts that have led to the continued success of the HOT SPOT. The first concept was to bring the monitor closer to the performer. Second, was to create an unpowered PA monitor speaker that projects mid/high range frequencies; a frequency tailoring that Galaxy Audio calls, controlled bandwidth.
By bringing the monitor closer, the stage volume can be reduced, which, in turn, helps clean up the front of house mix. The Galaxy Audio Hot Spot HS7 has integrated volume control that allows the performer to have more control over his/her volume and to hear the other musicians on stage.
Back in the very early 70's Galaxy Audio's founders Brock Jabara and Jim Pearce pioneered the small PA/personal monitor category with the innovative product called the HOT SPOT. Through the years we've offered groundbreaking designs in both powered and unpowered models. The Galaxy Audio PA6BT is the newest powered model in the Hot Spot line. Succeeding the Galaxy Audio PA6S, the PA6BT has kept the popular design and look of the PA6S, but with the addition of Bluetooth® technology with its own volume control. The outer shell has kept the distinctive shape of the original Hot Spot, but with a 21st Century look. The cabinet now uses two specially designed speaker components, the new 155 watt NEOLITE 6.5" Woofer and our highly efficient 1.5" 60 watt Tweeter.
The PA6BT takes full advantage of recent improvements in speaker and amplifier technology, making it the lightest, most powerful, and best sounding compact PA system we've ever offered. Features such as the XLR pass-through on each channel allow independent control of mics without affecting the signal sent to the house PA. A –20dB Pad switch on each XLR input ensures that even the hottest signals will be accepted without overdriving the inputs. An additional 1/8" Line input on Channel 2 will accept stereo or mono signals from sources such as tape or digital medial players as well as line level instruments.
The new two-way speaker system gives the Galaxy Audio PA6BT Powered Personal Monitor a much wider frequency response than earlier models. This means that full range music, such as keyboards or backing tracks, will come through with solid bass and crisp highs. This enhanced frequency response makes the PA6BT a great stand-alone PA system for small club gigs as well as lectures and A/V presentations. Plus a simple adjustment of the 3-band EQ can alter the response for singers who love the time-honored accentuated midrange of the classic Hot Spot vocal monitor. The PA6BT gives you the best of both worlds.
The PA6BT has a built in 170 watt amplifier designed to handle the most demanding audio situations. This high tech Class D amplifier produces plenty of power to cover a wide variety of applications. This design allows the Galaxy Audio PA6BT to function both as a stand-alone powered personal monitor system and as a high-powered vocal monitor to cut through loud stage volumes. For larger gigs that require more coverage, you may simply patch from the Preamp Output to the main house PA, while using the PA6BT as your onstage monitor.
The PA6BT also features a built in 18dB Compressor/Limiter circuit with Compressor and Clip LEDs. The Compressor acts to smooth out transient peaks in the signals, thus improving overall sound quality and increasing apparent volume. The Limiter helps protect the woofer and tweeter from being damaged by amplifier distortion. The Clip LED indicates when a reduction in volume is recommended.
"After years of wishing for a small powered speaker for my small private gigs and rehearsals, my dreams have been answered a hundredfold. The Galaxy PA6S is simply the best small monitoring system that I have ever heard that is on the market today. I am able to play 6-7 note Full piano chords, organ and synth leads at sustained high levels without ANY distortion, yet maintaining a brilliant clarity that fills rooms much larger than I thought capable of. Nothing… I mean NOTHING, gets close! I am a Galaxy fan for Life!"
