    Water lighting effect options

    Hi all, I work for a community theatre whose beloved and well-used Chauvet Oceana finally bit the dust (lamp died and they don’t make replacements anymore). Are there any modern fixtures that create a similar effect, or a water effect in general? I’ve seen the ADJ H2O LED but I have a hunch...

    Chauvet 4D Hazer Problem

    We have a couple of the Chauvet Hurricane Hazers. I'm having a weird issue and looking for ideas. The quick problem is that they lose DMX. They will be on, DMX engaged, all working fine, and then randomly the DMX channel starts flashing on the units and they quit working until a power cycle or...

    Chauvet Strike 4 flashing (not strobing)

    Has anyone in the booth, who has Chauvet's Strike 4 fixtures, experienced them FLASHING when running them to full intensity? It starts around 40% and stops at 75% and works great on either side of those values. It does the same thing when you completely remove DMX and just use the buttons on the...

    Showbaby 6 with Chauvet freedom pars

    So I have a city theatrical Showbaby Wireless DMX 6 attached to my etc ion. I was wondering if that could connect to the wireless Chauvet FlareCon that is contained within each freedom par. I know they both run on the same frequency so how would I make them communicate?

    Brief intro; I'm a budget minded musician in a few bands that also runs sound for other bands and getting into DMX lighting. With that said, I have a pair of old Chauvet Ultimate HZ hazers a fellow musician gave me (because someone put the wrong juice in a water based hazer!). They had been...

    Hey all: I've had issues with Eliminator ED15 Dimmer packs briefly losing data signal from multiple Chauvet boards (this issue is worse with the Chauvet Stage Designer than it is with the Obey 70, but happens with both. I've had this issue when using wireless DMX (show babies) AND when using...

    Colorsource 20av vs. MyDMX 2.0 (Chauvet 4Bar Tri patching)

    I'd rather be light designing but I'm having issues with my Colorsource 20av, which I am demoing as a replacement for American DJ's MyDMX 2.0. Both have problems that I'll detail below. In general the two consoles are still "neck and neck" -- most of what the Colorsource does right MyDMX also...

    Hello! I'm currently in a venue, where due to a series of unfortunate events, almost our entire inventory of QWashs has stopped working, we think due to being powered off dimmers set to non-dim. From the research I've done, it seems as if the LED drivers are what has gone one. There are two...
