    LEDs too Bright

    We recently build a new performing arts center and went all LED. One of my biggest issues is complaints from the dancers that the LED's are just too bright. They can't see. The issue is mainly with the ETC Source Four LED Series 2 Lustr units with the enhanced definition lens system and the...

    I have a number of clear CK color cove LED tubes on a show and am looking to wrap them in a material for more of a visible solid tube of light effect (so it looks more like a fluorescent tube or those frosted LED pixel tubes) rather than being able to see the individual emitters and was...

    Conventional Fixtures LED PAR for $9 ???

    Ok, from my viewpoint I could not even conceive of pushing a power cord through a grommet, provide free shipping, and be able to do it for $9. So, curiosity has got the best of me about these Chinese DMX LED PARs selling for $9, or specifically four of them for around $37 shipping inclusive...

    RGBW LED Tape

    Looking for an RGBW LED tape option that lets me ADD white to a tuned color. The ones I have in my kitchen can tune a color OR white but not both at the same time. Is that the way the tape is designed? Or is that a limitation of my controller at home? The guy I just spoke with at...

    Cost Effective Options for New Cyc Lights

    Hi all! High school theater has been given $10 - 12k to upgrade a few lights. Doesn't seem like a lot of money but at the moment the only (barely) working equipment we have are 12 Par64s and 3 8 inch Fresnels. From our POV it makes most sense to buy some LED cyc lights since that's the...

    My boss is going GOBO wild and wants more and more put into our show every year. 90% of them are used outdoors. I am up to 14 Source Four 750s and I'm out of power. We've built "rain bonnets" to help weather proof the electric end of the units and that works well. I'm thinking of getting the...
