What RGB floods are people using
« on: June 05, 2017, 03:38:48 PM »
I'm sorry to post this most likely this is in another post but everything I search for doesn't come back with any information.  But during the Las Vegas seminar Sean mentioned that floods make a big impact.  Since then I have been looking to see what kind of floods he uses.  The only thing I found was something he posted 2 years ago.  Does anyone know if he is still using the same floods?  Does anyone have a recommendation for RGB floods.  I was hoping to be able to run them using a Raspberry Pi and a PI Cap along with a different power supply.  Does anyone have inputs or a better way to search for this information?

Thanks
Kris

Look for robg floods, here's his store.

Not sure if Sean uses these, but they are the way to go in my opinion. Can be run from almost any RGB controller.

I built eight of the 10W RGB floods from RobG last year and run them off a Pi with a PiHat.  Works great in my opinion.

Another option: From AliExpress.com - Search for RA-TGDHV-10W--RGB-12V
You can reach out to Ray and he will work with you on the shipping...

Thank you for the all the responses.  When I look at the RobG store it looks like his 10w or 20w boards doesn't include the LED's.  I looked at a wiki about how to assemble his floods but I didn't see a reference to where the LED's come from.  How or where would you get the LED's?

They are available as an option. I ordered the 10w, I got the LEDs from him.

Many people order cheap RGB floods from Amazon and then modify them.
Warmoon 10W Waterproof LED Flood Light with US 3-Plug and Remote, RGB https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DIO7HKK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_OSPnzbD68J06X.
RobG kit would modify one of the Amazon lights. Think about if you want to control the light through DMX signal or as a 2811 chip. If you're not into DIY you might be better off ordering something pre-made like from Ray Wu.

Following. I'm in the market for some floods myself. I'm leaning toward DMX fixtures.

Would you consider the 10w floods to be bright enough? What color/surface are you shining on? Mine will be aimed at red brick :(

If I was you I would buy a 10 and a 20 watt and maybe even a 50 watt from Amazon and try them out to see if they fit your needs. Once you figure out what you are going to go with you can convert what you have or buy pre-made ones. Everybody has different tastes so what one person might consider enough light you may not think would be enough or vice versa. Chances are you won't be wasting any of the ones you buy to test from Amazon or even eBay.

red brick is tough. robg put out a video a while back with 10, 20, and 50. with the brick,  probably 50 unless you work in very small sections.
