Alex, do you know if these units have other back plates available than the 10 inch size or 7 1.2 inch ? from the manual it is hard to tell. Have you worked with this model? wondered what you opinion would be on making up a 6 1/4 inch back plateIf you just need units that work, then those will probably do it. You will probably have to buy new gel strings for them, but I am sure that Wybron will still make you them for those units. They will be a little bit of a PITA to set up as you will have to run non-dim power to each of them, but you do save the cost of a PSU. Make sure that you have enough 5-pin cable to hook them all up.
If you've considered the Smart Color then wait 'til you see the NEW Apollo Smart Color being introduced at LDI. It has additional features over the original Smart Color and continues to be a reliable theater partner with an emphasis on value.
They are good scrollers other than the fact they are offensively loud, even while not moving.I work with a children's community theater organization and I am thinking about purchasing about 6 scrollers. I don't need them to be very fancy, I am just looking for them to be able to scroll at least 10 frames at a decent speed. I've been looking around on the internet and I found some old, used Wybron scrollers that don't need power supplies:

Even though these are outdated, I think it would serve my purpose. What do you think?
