Has anyone tried switching their 1206 Midgets from FEL to GLD? What were your thoughts with the results?
I'm in the process of getting all the FELs out of the 360Q collection, and needed to put fresh lamps in the spots for an upcoming show. I'm not happy with the bench focus I was able to achieve with the GLD. The beam does pick the actors out of the 6x16 FEL wash though, so the GLD is working. I just haven't been able to eliminate the filament shaped hotspot.
I'd really prefer to not have any G9.5 lamps greater than 750W on hand due to the fun I'm having fixing the 6x16s and 6x22s with cooked innards.
