USA made LED's?
« on: April 13, 2014, 11:36:30 pm »

So far with a little bit of research the only ones I've found are the Megalite Color Cannon and the Altman Spectra Cube. 

My needs are for live sound events, some outdoors, and I would like 4 per side.  Front lighting.  I really don't know much about lighting other than how to hook them up and push the blackout button, but I always search first for products made in the USA.

Wow, a quick look at their site shows some really nice lights, but am I right in thinking they are start at around 1200 each?

The majority of LED's are completely manufactured offshore, and even most (if not all) of the US fixtures have a large portion of their components imported from overseas and finished assembly is performed in the US. I am unaware of any US-made fixtures that are not extremely pricey, except for some of the Megalite stuff.

You might also want to check out Rosco Miro Cubes, made in US.

We have been extremely happy with them and have quite a few in our rental inventory.

Where are you located? We can set up a demo.

Chroma-Q is made entirely in Canada, which is pretty close to the same thing!

I like the small footprint of the mirocube---small is good, as I'm tired of buying cases and bigger trailers.  Always seems like a neverending cycle.

I'm in Iowa City, IA....how close are you for a demo?

And James, the Chroma stuff looks very nice.  I wouldn't have too much of a problem going with a Canadian company if none in the USA can offer a competitive pricing. 

I've got a few questions about both of these products, hope it's okay to PM both of you gentlemen.

Yes and no.  The d22 is about $600 street ( Ithink). D40 about $1200.  11" selador about $900, 21" about $1500.   S4led with lens $1900.

They are very nice.  If you aren't doing theater, or even if you are, the chroma q is very nice as well.
