THe least put-together of the BT fixture Line I have seen thus far
I bought this simply to light up my facade. I liked the appeal of easily connecting this to programs I made with my other BT products. However, this product needs some work on its bluetooth functionality. I know it is not the app, because other fixtures excel at the programs I made, where this unit has some trouble. I can get it to work with minimal trouble, and clients will not notice the seemingly minor details, but to me, the functionality and capability to keep up with the other fixtures is not there. Also, the color mixing is pretty poor in some areas, but this is a issue I can look past. Don’t let this sway you from their other BT products, as they function much better. This one needed some more work before launch. I will eventually be swapping this out for one with quad LEDs to match my BT uplights, but for now, this will suffice. I just think they rushed this particular model out to shelves.
Bright but not lIte
This fiXture is very bright, but has several Issues. I work wIth chauvet products Alot and they are amazing. The t3 bt did not impress me. When using them via dmx – chamsys. Dim chaSes Do thr whole bar not 3’s, but the color works on 3’S. The bar itself is A little Heavier than otHers. When you tigHten the stands it always becAme un done before i am even able to hang it up. And it likes to flop around. When color mixing or going throUgh cues, it keeps the color before and blends to the new color. And it DOESN’T ever color mix Correctly when goIng ThroUgh your playback. I own foUr of them and they are useable just better done Used on the floor, and using the app.
sound mode poor response
I recently purchased a tis3bt. it appears that the sound mode is not working properly. I have adjusted the sensitivity up to 100 with almost no response. I have a bass amp positioned 8 feet away and still no or very little response. I borrowed my friends t3usb and his sensitivity is set at 43 and works perfectly! very disappointed. will return unit.
Response from CHAUVET DJ
That’s disappointing to hear, Michael. Thanks for the feedback. This will need troubleshooting as we aren’t sure why you’re experiencing this issue you described. Someone from our Customer Service team will reach out to you to assist! Thank you for being a CHAUVET DJ user.
Can't use Zones via BT
The light is nice (5 stars) nd easy to use via BT (5 stars) but it would be nice to have sound work and have zones (split bar in (3) sections of (4) lights when in BT use. The light does this when in stand alone and DMX. Little over looked feature. Sound mode via BT does not work well. (1.5 Star)
Response from CHAUVET DJ
DJ Rukus, Thanks for this feedback! In order to access the three zones, select “Zone Chase” from the left menu bar of BTAir. In this mode, you can choose one or more colors and the fixture will chase those colors through the 3 zones of COLORband T3BT. Utilize DMX for further control of the 3 zones, other than choosing colors; this is not an overlooked feature for BTAir. Could you elaborate on Sound Mode not working well? You can also reach out to the customer service experts for troubleshooting: [email protected]
These COLORband T3 BT Bars Are Awesome
This light works with the Chauvet DJ BTAir Bluetooth App which is super easy to use and the best part is that its free to download. The light itself is super bright and versatile utilizing tri color LEDs. Great for wall washing, Up-lighting or to light up a DJ facade. It”s compact and easy to set up. hey have so many options in the app which makes them perfect for any event. You can also use this with DMX Controller or the Chauvet IR-6 Remote. Love it!!!
