Best Led Lights To Work In Master/slave Mode?

18 June 2013 - 04:16 PM

I'd like to add a bit more "structure" and symmetry to my current lighting set up.

Which two LED lights work really well in master/slave mode? Budget is around 250-300 for both....

Set Up Times?

How long does it take everyone to set up?

I run two laptops with a mixer and power amp into 2 x subs and 2 x tops.

Lighting wise, I have 2 x T bars on tripods with 4 x par cans and 3 other lights (ADJ H20, Dualize scanner and MarvelLED). There's a couple of other bits as well - an led star cloth to cover the front of my 'booth' and a wireless mic.

It takes me just over an hour to set this lot up. Does that sound right? How can I simplify things - active speakers? Par bars?

Does anyone know if there are any smoke machines, hazers or foggers that WON'T set off fire alarms?

Looking to buy one to compliment my lights....

Last year at the kids christmas disco I managed to get the entire place evacuated with the help of a hired smoke machine. The poor kids had to stand outside in the pouring rain while the caretaker checked every room.

I wasn't hugely popular (must have done something right though because they want me back next month!)

Evening All....

Just thought I'd introduce myself.

First things first, I don't consider myself to be a "creative" DJ - I don't do "mixing" or anything like that. However, I can create setlists that entertain people and I'm a reasonable "compare" when it comes to talking/announcing over a mic. And I REALLY enjoy it. biggrin.gif

My story is simple. My kids attend a local school where I have "DJ'd" on hired equipment for xmas, halloween and Fireworks disco's. At the recent fireworks bash, I was asked to DJ a wedding next year, an 18th birthday and a kiddies party. I had to turn them all down as I don't own any equipment. wallbash.gif

So, I got to thinking and have started to invest in some decent-ish second hand gear. My intention is maybe one gig a month - so I won't be treading on of you pro's toes. I'll still be looking at getting a DML and some PLA though.

I'm very grateful to have found this forum. I've learned loads from just reading and will keep checking back to see what's going down, as well as my posts asking for help and advice!! rolleyes.gif

Wiring Help - Please.

22 November 2012 - 12:30 PM

Afternoon all.

I've just purchased a used PA set up and was wondering how to wire it all together. It seems fairly self explanatory but just want to make sure so as not to damage any gear!

The set up is this: LD Systems DP1600 amp, 2 x Peavey Eurosys 3 15" speakers, 2 x Skytec 15" subs.

All the speakers have Speakon and Jack connectors.

So, what goes where!

Thanks in advance!
