Title: Yorkville UCS1 users (max supported weight)
Post by: David Allred on June 05, 2018, 09:53:03 am
What is the most weight you've put in the pole cup?
I would like answers in 2 categories:
1 - Frequently used with confidence.
2 - Did it once or twice.  It didn't fail, but I wouldn't do it again.

This is a pure weight inquiry.  Stability is not yet a factor.

thanks

FWIW I frequently use the pole cup on my Yorkville ES808 subs.  I put a TX4 (81lbs) on the pole.
I will only do this at indoor gigs where the floor is level (for the most part).
Outdoors I use separate stands for the mid/high cabs for improved stability.

BTW: I "Iwo-Jima" the cabs to mount them...

Stability-wise it is ok - at best.

Your sub at 41" high should be tall enough to put a 15/2 mid-high can on top of w/o using a pole.
The dual driver format of your sub puts the center of gravity a bit high for my liking if you are adding a pole with anything over 45lbs on it....

I own UCS1P's, the powered version.

I've pole-mounted U15P speakers on them, which are each 93 lbs. I had no concerns about the weight bearing capability and would do that setup again without hesitation. FWIW, for stability reasons it was very important for me to use short sub poles (I think they're 22-24" or so).

I have had an indentical experience as Keith. I've used genuine Yorkville 24" poles with no issues and felt it was a bit sloppy,but no concerns about the weight.    Both have pole cups and are designed to be used together so the sub pole better be able to support the U15P. IMHO.
