DJ lights as a substitute?

The pocket scans also have a built in laser. If you want a cheap light with lots of features for a musical I'd look at them.

Would i be correct in assuming that the fan in a dj light with a 100w arc lamp is going to be much louder than the fan in a dj light with a 250w halogen lamp?

Logically, your question makes sense, but in reality the answer isn't as clear. DJ lights are made in the hundreds of thousands, and are not always assembled from the same parts. I remember seeing 4 of the exact same model fixture (brand and model withheld) with 4 different brands of motors on them. They were still factory sealed in the original boxes (came from a retailer that when out of business) so for giggles we opened them up to put the lamps in them and try them out. Different motors, different fans, etc. They get whatever parts fit and are the cheapest and away they go.
