alright guys here is a quick guide to building your own light box (for those not familiar its basically a box with halogen lights inside and plexiglass on top with sensors that lights up when you jump on it) for those of us not playing madison square garden this is a very cool prop for do it yourself live shows. real quick before you read this guide check out my awesome band ALAMANCE facebook.com/alamancemusic and listen to our single VEGAS Vegas (Master) by Alamance on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free you can do this a number of different ways. I designed my box to be as lightweight and durable as possible. you need to start with a frame first whether its build of 2x4's or thick plywood is at your discretion as you can see I used treated deck rail slats which I just had lying around, turns out they are a great alternative to 2x4's trading a little strength for light weight. I would recommend painting now or even before you start building frame, just easier in long run i used L brackets for stability *not pictured i actually added extra supports for the frame because of the heavy use and people constantly jumping on it cant be too careful. now comes the outer shell of the box, you can do whatever you want although keep in mind these lights (i used 500 watt halogen lights) put out a tremendous amount of heat and that can be a problem for your wiring/plexi i would recommend having rubber feet on the bottom so there is some sort of gap in between the floor and box, also vents in sides or even plexi cant hurt. pay no attention to the giant circles cut out in the front, that was to house inserts for my bands logo (i actually had to scrap that and make square cut outs for the logo) also note vents in the back last thing was to put flight case style hardware on it (since i used 1'4 plywood which isnt the strongest choice obviously because of weight. also note the foam stripping on top to give the needed spring to the plexiglass ive seen people use rubber stripping and carpet foam as well for this the wiring is pretty basic stuff, you can use normal momentary contact switches available at any radioshack. they are pretty fragile though, I am currently searching for more durable options that about wraps it up sorry I wasn't more thorough Its late and I have work early if you feel i left anything out or still have questions please pm me Ill be happy to answer them.
