    Can you post a picture of how you are mounting AC connectors inside the box?

    Yes, this "hobby" has advanced. Is it for the better, or not. You decide. I'm glad that I don't have to go back, at least as far as 2010's version.

    BTW - I'm remounting all my SS24s into better enclosures, with all the connectors inside the box (up and out of the weather). This year I'm supposed to have 8 of them in the field. Of course there are also a boat load of pixels (7 matrices, 7 mega trees (12, 14, and 16 feet tall) and more "other" props.

    But the SS24s are still in use, and still doing an admirable job!

    I think they are still coo l by today's standards .
    There is no light equal to incandescent imho .
    I am currently working with a custom arch design the will accept and dramatically diffuse any type of string or strip lighting internally .
    Incans still look the best.
    Leds just don't have that certain something that incandescent does ,especially with the fading leaps on arches .

    I'm building the boxes in the next couple of days. If I can remember, I'll grab some photos. (Old, grey matter may not be so much "grey" anymore - but I'll try.)
