    ^ i just went to harbor freight today. Two 500w halogen lamps for $20, i have the wood already and the plexi glass should be about $30 hahaha.

    They also have LED ones there if you're interested in those..
    45 Bulb LED Work Light

    Also that is an AWESOME idea to have the light up logos in the front. Im going to definitely do that too but i think ill instead put them in their own enclosures inside the box and have them lit by a light switch so they are always lit up.

    Thanks again for turning me on to this cause im super stoked about it.

    These things look so LEGIT!! When my band first started out we had two construction lights on stage. They were controlled by two power strips that were zip-tied together, and you just had someone turn them off and on with the power button while we played. Your lights look a little better.hahahaha

    Dude! This is awesome. If I had a van in Boston to lug stuff like this around, I would build one in a heartbeat.

    We already have some, I just think the hardware casing would look nicer on stage :)

    This is sick! You ought to do a more detailed build again so I can follow it verbatim :lol: I wonder if you could use gels to get some cool color action going.

    Could someone explain how to work the "sensor" My friend and I have been looking towards building stage-light boxes but wouldn't exactly know how to go about making it "triggered" or with a sensor.
