    At 193 pixels per prop, you can easily do full motion video (25ms refresh rate) with three props on a port. Since you have four props, I would put two on each prop just because I like the symmetry.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    oh, anotherthing though, 193pixels will be drawing roughly 12amp, and the e682 comes with 5amp fuses.

    That's at 100% white. You'll probably find yourself lowering the output to 50% or under because the colors look more pleasing. 100% brightness all anyone sees is a big glob of light. I run my show at 25% and the advantage to that is I can run more pixels with less power injection and I got rave reviews that my show looked much better this year because of the lower reduction. No one went home blind.

    My show is also running at reduced brightness. However, I hate going out in sub zero F temps to replace a fuse. I design everything to run at 100% and choose to run at a lower value.

    Does anyone have the spacing measurements between lights on the singing faces . Or is there a pattern of some sort ? My original home made ones were done out of 3/4Ē plywood and are getting too much to take up and down to attic as they are rather large and heavy also I didnít have all the correct mouth parts as I made these for incandescent minis my first year.
    So in need of a remake on a budget .

    Wilmar,

    I made one from rope lights, PVC and chicken wire. I built it to 4'x4' but it is still very light weight.
