  • My summary of the Blizzard Fab5's so far

    I ordered 16 Fab5's from Blizzard earlier this year to use in various events.  So far, they have worked great.  I have only had two that have had issues.  One had no DMX panel control since the day I got it, and the other went up in smoke during set up for a show in early July.  Since then, I have had two that were damaged by a "friend" (still not sure what he did to mangle them like he did), and issues with transport have rendered some of the DMX panel buttons to not work well, and a couple that have lost some of the colors (all my fault) so I'm sending them all back as a pack for their little issues here and there.  All in all though, they are great lights for the price.  Very bright and work great.  I will probably use them more on rear truss than anything, and look to stick some halogen or white-only cans up front for front lighting, and leave the multi-color lights to the rear.  Not sure 100% just yet.. If you're looking for a good multi-color LED can for the price, you can't beat these.  I've used them in everything from small DJ shows (wash/strobe FX) to bands, as well as uplighting, and they work great.

    I have a few and I love them. I use mine for front lighting. The only issues I have had is that I have to turn them down sometimes. They are really bright. I have lit up some fairly decent sized stages with only 4 Fab 5s.

      I really like them as well. I lit this stage with 4 Fab 5's on T-Bars.

      Full disclosure, I have everything on full. All RGBWA but it was good and bright!

        My issues with them (fixtures and their support) are well documented on these forums...

      We are going to do a theatre up in Michigan next month. Im thinking of putting 4 on t bars as well. If I can get away with only using those as front lighting then great. But Im thinking Ill at least get the color wash I want.

      Due to time constraints Im not really going to be able to mount anything else up front.

        I have 2 Q12+ fixtures on short bars at each front corner and they provide big blasts of color on all but the biggest stages. They do seem to be a bit more powerful than the Fab 5s except for amber and white.

        Here are mine with 4 on each side in the front, and 4 on the rear truss.  I was planning on doing a front truss and spreading them out, but to the side it's not too bad if you aim them right.
