Sound & Lighting Solutions (SLS) moved to a new Fort Lauderdale location with more space and a showroom dedicated to CHAUVET® fixtures. The highly anticipated open house, which turned out to be a mobile DJ and club installers dream, gave attendees the chance to get hands-on with the latest CHAUVET® lighting gear and atmospheric products. During the event, Jay Krause, owner of SLS, walked attendees around the showroom and gave live demos.
Beams from Mega Trix™ flooded the main showroom as gobos from Q-Spot™ 560-LED spanned the walls and ceiling. SlimPAR™ PRO RGBA wash lights and the 100% TRUE wireless Freedom™ series saturated the room with blue and red hues. Krause gave a live demo of the powerful Nimbus™ dry-ice machine in the CHAUVET® showroom as Intimidator™ scanners and movers, Rotosphere™ LED, Cubix™, Orb™, Scorpion™ lasers, and numerous other fixtures created a light show.
“This is our eighth year in business and we needed a more spacious showroom for all our architectural and DJ products, Krause said. “CHAUVET® offers the best products and has the most versatile product line — there is a full spectrum DJ and Pro products at my disposal for any type of application and installation.”
In the back of the building, a crowd of lighting enthusiasts gathered outside for a wash light demo. The lineup included PiXPar™ 12, PiXPar™ 24, COLORado™ 1 IP, Legend™ 412 VW, Q-Wash™ 560Z-LED, WELL™, SlimPAR™ Pro Tri, SlimPAR™ Pro RGBA and COLORado™ Batten 144 Tour. One open house attendee, Sean Paul Powell, found the performance of Q-Wash™ 560Z-LED particularly impressive.
“The Q-Wash™ 560Z-LED is a very impressive light,” Powell said. “I can wash a stage or open the beam and double its size. I’m buying two!”
