Title: need some help designing!
Post by: Travis Riddle on October 27, 2008, 05:03:13 pm
So.....i am trying to put together a lighting system that would be adequate for up to 1000 people. I want to do high sensory type lighting but i know this would cost a fair amount of money. I am looking at a 5-10k$ price range. Effect/Moving lighting is what i am really looking at right now. I purchased 25 Par64 cans so i have those to put with. Let me know what you guys think would fit my situation. I can give more info on details so just ask. Thanks!

Is this for a band, a dj or both?  What about the area to be covered, how big, is it a dance floor or a stage?

What will the lights be hung from?  Is the system permanent or portable?

Its for both. Area to be covered is approximately 100x200. The lighting i have i am goin to use for coverage of the band. I want to have some effect lighting on the stage but i want about 85 percent of it in the crowd. I really liked the lighting at HOB dallas. I know it will be impossible to reproduce that on my very tight budget. But any suggestions to get me along those lines will be awesome. I love the bright washout effects and i really like the white laser trace type lights. I am very ignorant when it comes to lighting so please forgive me!


btw i am not concerned about the size of the system or setup time. I just want the best thing for the money and what i need. High sensory lighting!
