OB14 Layout

OB14 is a powerful new truck designed to provide optimum internal space and yet cope with venues where access and/or parking are restricted. The truck features a single “super-expanding” side. The overall space within the unit compares favourably with our double-expanding OB units.

Production and VT are located side-by-side, separated by a part-sliding partition system, which allows for an open-plan arrangement when required. Both areas feature a spacious two tier arrangement, with the rear tier lifted up above the front tier for increased visibility. This is also the first truck in the UK to feature the new highly flexible Lawo audio mixing desk.
