Bogen Communications OPS1B
6" 100W Orbit Pendant Speaker


NEAR's Orbit Pendant Speaker (OPS1) is ideal for high ceiling and open space environments.  The OPS1 features NEAR's MLS™ and MDT™ technologies, which improve sound quality and increase operating reliability.  The low-distortion speaker design, featuring NEAR's spiderless driver and one-piece metal-alloy cone structure, delivers superb articulation and high intelligibility for both music and speech.


  • Wide dispersion coaxial driver for broad, even 140° coverage
  • Stable, high definition metal-alloy cone
  • MDT™ cone design delivers detailed sound
  • MLS™ eliminates conventional centering “spider” for more accurate voicecoil centering
  • High-efficiency drivers deliver superior performance
  • Extremely good off-axis response
  • Computer-matched venting system for full bass output
  • High power handling capability for foreground sound
  • Selectable power taps via front-mounted control
  • 16-ohm input for non-transformer multi-speaker systems
  • Easy wiring with snap-on connector
  • Connector provides loop-through to next speaker
  • Easy to use cable suspension system that includes three suspension cableswith attached forged eyebolts
  • Threaded brass insert point for optional safety cable eye bolt
  • Low-resonance cabinet structure
  • Off-white or dark gray textured finish; easily painted to match themedecors
  • Attractive, contemporary, sturdy steel grille assembly with fineperforations

Unique MDT™ (Metal Diaphragm Technology):

  • Solid, one-piece cone structure eliminates the traditional dust cap
  • Extremely stable cone structure over extended periods
  • Fast transmission of sound through the diaphragm means low energy storage
  • Special hard anodizing process creates a ceramic surface for increasedstiffness
  • Super-efficient thermal path for cooling the voice coil (not paper orplastic)
  • High rigidity and low mass versus typical paper or plastic cones

MLS™ (Magnetic Liquid Suspension):

  • Magnetic liquid (Ferrofluid) injected into magnet gap
  • Constant lubrication of the gap prevents oxidation from occurring
  • Voice coil is most efficiently cooled by fluid path rather than air
  • Lower distortion via stronger centering forces on voice coil
  • Increased reliability, particularly in high power daily use systems
