DJ Tutor Johnathan Lewis had a great road case in perfect condition and 2 new CHAUVET DJ Intimidator LED Spot 350′s. He wanted to put them together to safely transport the lights. But there was a catch. They didn’t fit. So what’s an enterprising DJ to do? Tear the case apart? Buy a whole different case? It’s funny how a challenge sometimes just needs to be turned around! Check out how looking at things just a bit differently saved the day!
CHAUVET DJ IP fixtures are water-resistant and great for outdoor use! DJ Jer spends a little Shop Time with the CHAUVET DJ SlimPANEL Tri-12 IP and COLORband Pix IP in the field. IP represents the Outdoor rating system and is used to signify that the Chauvet DJ fixture is safe to be in rainy or outdoor conditions. The weather-proof fixtures are safe to be in snowy or salt water conditions and will outlast any fixture that is not rated for outdoor use. These phenomenal lights will give you the advantage over your competition because you now have the power to do outdoor events safely.
