OSIX Definition and Assembling Table

In addition to the shared elements, each OSIX suspension is assembled starting from distinct elements, according to the type of microphone for which it is dedicated:

A bar screwed with the swivel, of which the length defines the spacing of the insulators, and the numbers of holes determines the possible positions of the swivel:
  - N°1: 64 mm + 4 holes (3 positions)
  - N°2: 84 mm + 6 holes (5 positions)
  - N°3: 108 mm + 7 holes (6 positions)

Two metallic wire insulators , whose diameter determines the stiffness:
  - D08: Diameter 0.8 mm: soft
  - D09: Diameter 0.9 mm: hard

Dampers placed in contact with the insulators and the cradle. According to needs, each insulator is damped differently:
  - Am1: ONE unique cylinder inserted (diameter 12 mm, length 10 mm)
  - Am2: TWO stuck cylinders (diameter 7 mm, length 12 mm approximately)

A cradle fixed at the insulators, of which the length depends on the size available of the microphone:
  - N°1: 74 mm
  - N°2: 94 mm
  - N°3: 124 mm

An elastic strap of which the length is adjusted according to the diameter of the microphone:
  - S1: 44 mm
  - S2: 48 mm

page top  Index of position of the swivel according to the model of bar:


Index of position of the swivel (1 to 6), according to the model of bar (N°1 to N°3).

The "mobile" part of the swivel being screwed in two consecutive holes of the bar, these indices are thus between the holes.

The index "C" is used if the swivel is centered (OSIX ORTF).

The indication "MIC" or "XLR" gives the orientation of the bars.
