During the summer of 2013, I purchased eight 15watt RGB DMX flood lights for $30 each. I spent a whole week building custom wooden housings to protect them from rain and snow. When setup time came, I had trouble getting the floods to work at all. I put the project on hold for 2014. When 2014 came and went I found myself with other problems, namely all my sequencing had been lost. The RGB floods would have to wait again!
Tonight I spent about 2 hours and finally diagnosed the error, faulty wiring by the user. Yes, I soldered the wrong wires on to the XLR cable and the DMX data could not be decoded. *Sigh Well, 2015 will be re-arranged now to add not only these 15w flood lights, but also a new series of flood lights that will wash the walls with colors in a different way 🙂 Live and learn, video coming soon hehe.
