I am looking for information on strobe lights, specifically how many people are using in there display. I just bought 40 strobe lights and 500 feet of cable with sockets. I have a 20 foot mega tree and I want to give my show that bam affect, but I dont want it to be too over the top.

Thanks

Brad

I used 25 in each Mega Tree, and maybe could have used a couple more.....:D

How did you run them in your mega tree?

I ran 3 pieces of parachute cord from my tree topper. One down the front of the tree, and 1 to each side. I attached the cord at the bottom to my base ring. I divided the strobes in to two strings, (2 channels) started at the top of the tree (just below the topper) and zig zagged them down the interior of the tree. I attached them to the cord with twist ties. Suggest putting the strobes up before stringing the lights. (I had tried just attaching them to the strings of lights, but it creates too much sag in the strings.)
