Sound & Lighting Solutions (SLS) moved to a new Fort Lauderdale location with more space and a showroom dedicated to CHAUVET fixtures. The highly anticipated open house, which turned out to be a mobile DJ and club installers dream, gave attendees the chance to get hands-on with the latest CHAUVET lighting gear and atmospheric products. During the event, Jay Krause, owner of SLS Solutions, walked attendees around the showroom and gave live demos.
Beams from Mega Trix flooded the main showroom as gobos from Q-Spot 560-LED spanned the walls and ceiling. SlimPAR PRO RGBA wash lights and the 100% TRUE wireless Freedom series saturated the room with blue and red hues. Krause gave a live demo of the powerful Nimbus dry-ice machine in the CHAUVET showroom as Intimidator scanners and movers, Rotosphere LED, Cubix, Orb, Scorpion lasers, and numerous other fixtures created a light show.
“This is our eighth year in business and we needed a more spacious showroom for all our architectural and DJ products, Krause said. “CHAUVET offers the best products and has the most versatile product line — there is a full spectrum DJ and Pro products at my disposal for any type of application and installation.”
In the back of the building, a crowd of lighting enthusiasts gathered outside for a wash light demo. The lineup included PiXPar 12, PiXPar 24, COLORado 1 IP, Legend 412 VW, Q-Wash 560Z-LED, WELL, SlimPAR Pro Tri, SlimPAR Pro RGBA and COLORado Batten 144 Tour. One open house attendee, Sean Paul Powell, found the performance of Q-Wash 560Z-LED particularly impressive.
“The Q-Wash 560Z-LED is a very impressive light,” Powell said. “I can wash a stage or open the beam and double its size. I’m buying two!”
