I'm needing a spotlight fixture for my venue. Obviously, I want an LED fixture and preferably not true-white (blue) color. Biggest thing, I'm needing a lens to make it look more like a spotlight. I have some Source Four Jr Zooms that would be perfect....if they weren't 600 watts. I'm looking to shoot 15ft, straight down to the dance floor. I'm wanting to hard a nice, white circle with a nicely defined circle that surrounds the B&G for their First Dance.

Check out the icon profile led in the warm white option. I prefer this because you can manually zoom, and also adjust focus to make it as hard or soft as you'd like. I use it for monograms, but it would work for what you're asking as well and is small and light. Personally I hate actual circles for spotlights, bc what happens if the couple steps out of it, especially for choreographed first dances that have movement... I prefer a nice soft wash that covers the whole area practically so no matter where they go they're lit well.

Do you have a URL on that light?

As for the spot, yes, the couple can step out of it but I doubt seriously that I'll be seeing many choreographed dances. I'm planning to make it standard to use 2 of the Jr Zooms to spray an amber, gobo image to cover the entire dance floor then use the spotlight to shoot from directly overhead, putting an 8-12ft white circle, directly onto the center of the dance floor. I'm envisioning having nice highlights on the tops of their heads. Here's a shot of what I have currently (only 1 jr zoom). I'm thinking to put the chandelier on a dimmer and bring it down during the spotlight dances.

You know, on second thought, maybe I need to not buy a new light and just run a separate circuit overhead (on a dimmer). I need to run another anyway, to separate out the chandelier. If I ran a 2nd one, put them both on dimmers, problem solved. I love those Source Four fixtures, just wish I had them in LED.

Don't dimmers create issues with audio?

(unless you were talking about professional lighting control dimmers)

Yes, they do and I have no idea what causes them to do it sometimes. I currently have 1 circuit going to the top-middle of the room and have 6 LED 48ft rope segments, along with the chandelier (also LED bulbs). The whole thing draws about 180 watts. I think I'm going to run 1 circuit to energize the center, white SF fixture (white spotlight) and put that on an on/off switch. I'll then pull another circuit on a dimmer for the chandelier. The other circuit will stay on and will have the side SF fixtures (gobo) for a patterned spray on the dance floor. When it's time for spotlight dances, flip on the white spot and dim down the chandelier. When it's time to open the floor for general dancing, kill the white spot and keep the chandelier dimmed. I'm installing 4 mirror scanners (2 60-watt and 2 30-watt) overhead and then will run my other 2 mini-t-bars (chauvet colorstrip mini + 2 60-watt movers on each) from either side of the head table. Sure wish I could get that dang myDMX Go rig to work right but for now, 8 beams and 2 washes will work, even if on sound active. Make sense?
