  • Lights on speakers in small rooms

    Once and awhile I've seen post about putting lights on speakers in small rooms. Seen this on the net and thought I'd pass it on.

      Old idea and WAY overpriced...

        Here's my version. I used an altered pair of K&M 19672 adapters I already had laying around.

          Thought about that but all that vibration cannot be good for lights.

            I've been doing that for about 5 years with no problems.

              My RCF310a's (and B208D's) have a single 10mm hang point on top - so I bought some of these:
              http://www.ebay.com/itm/331347668216
              and reamed out the mounting holes on a couple of LED floodlight fixtures to accommodate the bolt size. I might eventually use some aluminum bar stock to make lighting bars with a 10mm hole in the middle and a mounting hole on either end. That can take four fixtures (two on top, two underneath. The QSC "K" speakers have two 10mm hang points on top.

                Why do you want to put a light pointed at the audience? (read: blind them)?
                Isn't it the artist which has to be in the spotlight?

                  The point being made is how to safely mount the lights, you can aim them wherever needed.

                    How are they secured? Do these things screw into the fly points?

                    Blinders do a good job of making big moments "pop".

                      I use AMDJ Dotz TPar on my speakers currently, but have been using a smaller sub/mains combo for some of the smaller weddings lately. I'm thinking of trying the Chauvet Wash FX as stage wash over the speakers. Very light and small and would look pretty slick, but can't aim them. Supposedly 90 degree coverage so should work. I'll probably get 1 to test and if it doesn't work just use as a blinder or wall wash behind us.

                        They are only designed to work with specific models of speakers, limited to some Eons and a couple of QSC and Alto models.

                        One more time kids; equalizers are not cross overs, vocal mics are not cymbal mics and pan knobs are not three position switches. As you were.
