We have recently knocked down our old arena space and are in the process of building a new arena space in the same location. Small house...somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 seats with modest throws (lighting positions hover around +18'-0") I'm currently working on putting together a list of equipment to augment the inventory that will be coming over from the old space. That inventory as follows: 83 Source Four bodies 24 Source Four Jr. zoom 40 Source Four Parnel 13 Source Four PAR As you can see, the space is currently an all-ETC house; the result of a deal a number of years ago with the local power company to cut overall consumption. So, here's the question: ETCs lekos are simply the best in the biz and the pars are fine...but the parnels suck. For most situations, the lekos and pars will do the job...but there are times when one wants a fresnel. I don't think we need a million of them, but a system of fresnels would fill a hole in our current inventory. Anyone have a favorite? A look around the US manufacturers' websites shows that Altman still rules the market, but I can't help thinking that someone out there has to have made some improvements on the design over the last couple of decades. The Selecon units look interesting, but I've never used them...and I've heard there are some great units being sold across the pond, but once again I have no experience with them either. So, anyone have a favorite they'd like to recommend? And, while I'm at it...anyone else have any favs for small spaces that I should be thinking about as well? I'd love to throw in some LEDs, but can't really justify the cost vs. what they could be used for in the space. I'm thinking of throwing a system of Seachanger wash units into the mix, and grappling with whether to spec a few "moving special" units (we have a few Apollo Right Arms...which are OK, but I don't know if I want to buy more of them). OK. That's a lot, I'll stop now.
