35mm Steel Tophat Speaker Fitting
Used For – The TopHat fitting is the most common method for attaching a large speaker, such as a PA speaker, to the top of a stand by simply fitting the TopHat to the base of a speaker. There are no moving parts to jam, no flimsy brackets to snap or strip their threads, just a solid metal, recess into the body of your speaker cabinet, that the main pole (or ‘mast’) of the speaker stand slots into. Gravity takes care of keeping your speaker secure on the stand, while still offering 360 degree movement.
Internal Diameter - The internal diameter of this Top Hat is 35mm, this is a standard size, perfect for use with 99% of speaker stands on the market.
Installation – Before making any holes, open your speaker cabinet up, and make sure that there is nothing in the immediate path of where you plan to install the TopHat. Due to its depth, the body of the TopHat will protrude into the interior of the cabinet by approx 3in (7.5cm). You can install the TopHat on the base or side of your speaker, depending on how you want them oriented on the stands, but either way, they should be central, to keep your speakers stable.
Having ensured that there is adequate clearance within the speaker cabinet, drill a hole in the side or bottom of your speaker cabinet slightly larger than 35mm in diameter, and slot the TopHat in so that the ‘brim’ sits flat against the outer surface, screw into place, and you’re ready to go.
Construction - Made of a tough alloy, designed not to warp or flare over time, to keep your speakers seated securely on their stands.
