Doesnt last long

January 17, 2020

As Steven mentioned in his review. I just did a gig and after the show I noticed the the mirror assembly inside had fallen off! Since this unit was out of warranty I opened it up and I had the exact same issue with the plastic mirror assembly. IT had cracked from one set screw to the other. I have ‘repaired’ it using some super glue and epoxy. What a cheap part! I wish I had a 3D printer handy to print a new one. Or maybe the shaft for the mirror could be longer and use a bolt or something rather than two set screws in crappy plastic. Expensive unit for cheap plastic!

Poorly designed

December 1, 2019

Mirror assembly is made of soft plastic, INcluding the Hub that the set screws are in. Both units have Failed mid-gig due to the hubs splitting. Very disappointed, especially since we Raised the issue with chauvet and heard nothing back from them.
