Thankfully every one of them is in perfect working order... takes about 20 seconds to click the right wireless channel color and lock in the dmx address and they are up and working with MyDMXgo.

I got a couple of the Rockville bags... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rockville-...DJ-Lights-Controller-Accessories/392132244392


which ive got to say are much smaller than i imagined... but with a little geometry and tetris...along with some extra grey foam i had...i was able to utilize the triangular shape to fit 7 in each bag....

So i assigned 7 to one dmx address and the other 7 to another dmx address... just incase i want to two tone candy stripe with them.

I didnt get the charging case... so i just charge 7 at a time with the Furman's...

i truly recommend these highly affordable uplights to any who ask!!!

I like them all on separate DMX addresses so you can do the light patterns.

i have my wash lights and moving heads all on separate adresses...so i sort of ran out of space... mydmxgo only has ...what? 250?

Yea, 256 by default unless you upgrade. $29 for 128 channels .. max 2 upgrades.

After you said you were running out of channels, I decided to look at what I was using .. movers use 12 channels, Wash FX2 use 28 and Wedges use 10, so for my small setup, it's 24+56+40=120, so I still have plenty of room to add more wedges, or use my Blizzard moving washes or my Blizzard pucks.

I've thought about adding a 4 pack of Chauvet Freedom Sticks .. those use 50 channels each if you want control of each LED, so 4 would need 200 channels and I would need 1 or 2 128 channel add-ons. .

yeah...ive got a little headroom left....my next light would start at 188.... its not enough for 12 uplights...but i might save it for 2 more movers at some point...

Scratch that last question. Crappy place to put rocker switches. My Chauvet Slimpar EZs were the same thing. You put them in the box and there's no way to keep them from getting switched on. Why can't engineers think about stuff like this?

Where are the power switches? Can they get bumped on accidentally?
They are pictured above... a black switch and a red switch... both have to be flipped on in order for the light to turn on... if set to a dmx address the led's do not even turn on until triggered....

The part im most careful with is the menu... its always hot....so touching it normally changes the dmx address a number....annoying...but liveable

They look amazing. I can't wait to see them at an event you're doing to see what they look like then. Glad you had the extra income to buy them. I wonder where there's a place that you can get them for a cheaper price.

I got to say I want the those lights in the case designed for the Rockwedges. I saw the lights with the case for $699. They are awesome! I would love a set of 12 to 18. If you use 12 or 18 for uplights how large a room would they be good for?

The case is cool... but takes up far too much space for 6 little lights... 12 to 18 will do medium to small venues well... for something like Taso does you would need double or more.
