I've gone with the Chauvet FreedomPar hex4 for my uplighting.
I used to run power and dmx to the PARs I had before, but the setup time, available power outlets and possible trip hazards led me to the wireless battery powered devices.
Now it takes 5 minutes to deploy 10 up lights.  Batteries last 6-8 hrs.
This has more than paid for itself, plus they are rentable (easy setup, hard to screw up).
Full disclosure, I'm a Chauvet dealer.

You mean firestop?

No, duct seal. It is like a putty like modeling clay. It never hardens. I still have some from 1974 that is fine. I am blanking on the trade name.

Iíd just grab a block of duct seal and shove some of that in there.  Thatís what itís for and itís not the pain-in-the-ass that foam or silicone would be.  You can get it at Home Depot or your electrical supply shop.

Does anyone here have any experience with Cedarslink Crank Lighting Stands? I've searched the internet and can't seem to find much for reviews. A couple on Amazon is about all.

Thanks

The site is a Shoppify template.  No "about us" or contact info.

Other than price is there something about them that stands out to you compared to the ST-132?

My house has tried to kill me before, like when the water heater energized my shower water....  :o

My smoke detector works just fine, so I should be OK...

Of course you never see the bullet coming that gets you.  8)

I think everyone knows this already, but if a XLR with ground (pin 1)  L (pin 2) R (pin3) stereo signal is sent to a balanced input only the difference between the L & R channels remains.  On most modern recordings this tends to be an lot of "reverby" sounds and weak or missing vocals.  Of course if you build your breakout adapters correctly (and I know you would) you'll get the stereo signal you are wanting.  As was stated, the problem is if anyone else comes in and plugs those LXR's into their balanced gear . . . they might be confused for a while!

When we rent mixers with balanced TRS line inputs we either send out the proper "adapter" or warn them about what will happen.  Still every few rentals we still get the call : I plugged my XXX into you mixer with my cable (or the one my friend gave me) and it sounds really FUNNY!

Making & packaging stuff in ways to minimize human error (whether misguided or clueless) costs a lot of money, adds weight and internal complexity.  If you don't do this you'll get lots of phone support calls, unhappy clients and occasionally have to make a site visit to "fix" the problem.

Carry out rental clients and most fixed installation clients both want the same thing - an appliance-level UI that requires no or little understanding of how the system works.  Turn on the wireless mic and sound should magically come out of the speakers.  The system should protect itself from clueless or abusive operation, too.  If it weighs nothing and is invisible, even better.

Have fun, better audio through cynicism.

One of the problems that I have noticed is vocal projection it seems to have become a lost art.


There you have it!
I had to make a coffee to get through that post ;D

You could have gone quiet for a few days as a gag....  :-)
