Mark,

You should be able to address each light with the dip switches on the fixture. Since they use 6 channels, the second light would be addressed as "7", and so on.

Here is a pdf chart with generic dmx/dipswitch assigments.

Thanks Mike, I reread the manual and found the sentence that said 'the DMX channel is set on the back of the fixture'

The ADJ P64's are very useable, and very cost-effective. The only drawback is the lack of a true "white" and a really lame "yellow". If you're lighting performers you might consider adding 1 P64 white LED (if they ever actually ship the damn things!), but for general wash/ambient light the RGB fixture works well. The original batch had some goofiness with the DMX switch that has been corrected in the latest batch.

Mark,

I just got 8 ADJ P64's.  I've got ordered 2 cases ( http://www.odysseygear.com/display.php?sku=frpar1&PHPSES SID=a1a02d9d0fbed4e6fe2c39b8182789fb) to store and carry them in.  I went with the ADJ controller ( http://www.americandj.com/product.asp?ProductIDNumber=1400&a mp;cat=DMX_Controllers) so I can control both the "new" led lights, as well as my old P56 cans.  I think the new lights are FANTASTIC, very easy to use (once you understand the dip switches...).  Highly recommend them (keep in mind we've only had 3 shows with them...

Thanks Duane and Scott for your help.

Scott, that Odyssey case looks great, but it weighs 50 lbs.  The four LED cans and an aluminum stand are only 25 pounds,...  I think I'll search for something lighter Smile

Mike,

Any chance you're going to tell us who makes this case ?
