Instructions for constructing and using the HDL300 mobile stand for demos, tests and trade shows.
Last Updated: August 13th, 2021
The HDL300 system mobile stand can be set up quickly for testing, demonstrations or other temporary uses. For situations where the microphone and speaker bar cannot be mounted on the wall (trade show environments where you can't put holes in the wall, etc.), the mobile stand can help provide optimal height and audio coverage for the system.
The mobile stand is top-heavy. Move and adjust with caution to avoid the stand tipping over and causing harm to people, objects around it or the HDL300 system. We do not recommend using the mobile stand as a long-term solution.
The mobile stand consists of the following items:
Simple tools, such as a drill, screwdriver and wrench set are required to create the stand.
HDL300 integrated microphone and speaker bar weighs 18.0 lbs. (8.2 kg). The Yorkville SKS-21B stand is specified up to carry up to 100 lbs. (45.4 kg) and can be mounted at a height of 100 inches (2.54 m).
This Yorkville stand gives the stability and height required for this application. Other stands may also be considered if they can handle the weight and be stable at the required height. Alternate stands can be considered if they can hold up to 80 lbs. (36.2 kg) and mounted at a height of 100 inches (2.54 m).
The additional weight support for the stand is required for safety factors. The stand needs to be sturdy and stable, able to safely hold the mounting backboard, the mounting hardware and the integrated microphone and speaker bar. Vendors such as American DJ and Odyssey have similar products that could be evaluated for stability and function.
The screws go on the opposite side of the board to where the T-bar is mounted. Make sure the screw has enough thread engaged into the wood so that it can hold the weight of the HDL300 integrated microphone and speaker bar.
For safety and stability reasons, use a second person to help hold the system while the shaft is extended. Be careful not to extend beyond the maximum height of the stand.
Do not move the stand and system when the shaft is fully extended, it is very top heavy and can easily tip
The procedure can easily be reversed to take the system down. Both the T-bar assembly and the HDL300 integrated microphone and speaker bar can be removed from the stand and the stand can be collapsed to allow for easy transport.
