Title: Par 46 and 300 watt reflector kits
Post by: james tucker on November 08, 2005, 10:55:51 pm
I am trying to put together a small rock lighting system that fits in a few rubbermaid tubs.  I already have 32 Par 64's that get used for most big shows. I need a 16 can show that is bright, small, and fits in the back of my mighty Ford Taurus..  

I am considering Par 46's with 300 watt JCD lamps.  I've used the 200 watt lamps in the past but I wanted more output than the standard 46 lamp.

I already have 4 46 loaded with DYS lamps (used primarily for work lights, house lights, anything that doesn't require color).  Has anyone had experience with Par 46's loaded with 300 watt JCD lamps?  Will it burn my gel within a few minutes of being turned on at full.

Thank you very very much.

Normal PAR 46's is all I have gelled with so sorry I can't help other than saying it shouldn't but it would be dependant upon saturation.  If worried, perhaps some heat shield in a second frame might reflect enough heat.

Hopefully others will respond with their thoughts.   Hate it when a post is not answered.
