    Trunk or treat idea

    Thanks guys. I saw that some of the converters I looked at were modified sine wave and wondered about that and “clipping”. I’ll do some research into the suggestions provided and try to do it right instead of this years spur of the moment idea Thanks!

    Trunk or treat idea

    Thanks Orville, I appreciate the detail you put in the response. Godd info. I guess it’s plan B. I’ll slap decorations on my car and call it Lightning McQueen (Daughters idea). thanks!
  3. Hi all, my wife’s elementary school is having a trunk or treat event. Seems like the ideas were all “been there, done that”. But, I was thinking of using one of my AC controllers in the back of her SUV to run a simple (1controller, maybe 10-11 channels with LED lights for a few strings and pumpkins) show. Has any one used a dc to ac converter in their cars? Any issues? I was thinking it wouldn’t need much by way of power other than my laptop (and whatever the controller itself pulls).Please let me know what you think or if you’ve ever tried it thanks Allen M
  4. Hi All, new issue for me. When leaving for work this morning, I noticed one mini tree channel was acting up: light went on and off several times randomly. It would be full on for a second or two then turn off. Then flashed a few times. I’m assuming triac or cat 5 as I’ve had an issue during the show a few years ago, but that was DURING the show. The strange thing is since we were out and about last night I had the show disabled. Suggestions or ideas?

    Speaker activation

    Thank you sir. I may just take you up on that. Takedown happening Jan 6. When I pack it away and clear the bench, this may be just the project to work on this year. Sounds like a fun project

    Speaker activation

    Thanks for the feedback! I would love to make it interactive down the road but for now I was thinking of having it simply activate a set of speakers so the neighbors (or passers by) could listen to the current selection. 🤔 but now you’ve got me thinking interactive, and there is time for me to look at that.

    Speaker activation

    I was wondering if anyone has set up something along the lines of a small platform where people step up and can activate the speakers? I was thinking of utilizing an old Halloween pressure mat prop inline with the audio so that when they stepped up, the music would play. Anyone willing to share ideas of what they did along these lines? I get a little traffic nightly, but lotsa neighbors and their kids in the neighborhood who like to walk. I would like to set something up for this reason. Ideas? thanks allen

    Rgb in SE

    Thanks Sax! That helps a lot. I am going to grab my other laptop when I get home and start playing with the SE and visualizer and then get the bosses blessing for the more plug and play type unit (LOR CCbulbs or bullets). i appreciate the tips and advice!

    Rgb in SE

    I want to dip my toe into RGB but I am unsure about how to proceed. Currently running 64 channels (4 AC controllers) with S4 basic plus V 4-3.18 Can I program a ccp + unit in SE? I hear varying info on this? Is SE or visualizer limited in any way for RGB? I’m not sure I want (or am even allowed by the boss) to invest in a CCP unit or 2 AND a pro upgrade including PE. I appreciate any insight I can get al
  10. Hi all! It's been a while so I hope this hasn't been addressed, although I did not find anything on it: i want to fill dead space on my walls (not just lights on window and roof edge) with vertical runs every 3 or 4 feet. I want to do 3 colors with one channel for each, can I run a single stp1 for each channel under my eaves with female vampire plugs spaced out along the length for each drop? The lights will be 50 and 100 count LED lights. Anyone see issues with doing this or would it be safer/ better just to keep the lights in series and hide or camouflage the excess? Hope that makes sense. thanks Allen

    Who else has a 2016 budget of $0?

    The budget is always been ridiculously low by order of the wifey. And I'm all about keeping her happy and agreed to keep the budget low and only spend on things around the house. Tomorrow I'm off to buy a $75 plunger for the bathroom

    Yep!! I totally agree with thecomments and feedback above. I PM'd Mr. Talley in October while I was putting mine together. My solo efforts werent turning out very well (definitely not like I envisioned). He graciously offered advice and an example. Mine went from looking like some sort of deranged yard Lava lamp to a pretty good facsimile.
  13. Hey all, I have been taking advantage of the Walmart after Xmas sales the last several years buying up MANY, MANY of the 50 count- 12ft LED SETS AND have a question for the electrical guys out there: Aside from the obvious potential issues of wet connections, are there any downsides to having so many plug interconnects? Thanks in advance and happy new year everyone!
