Daniel Wendt, owner of Smoov Music Sound & Lighting Services, lives in Delafield, Wisconsin and has 10 years of experience in the industry. His main niche is weddings, but he also provides services to school dances, corporate events and birthday parties. In search of 100% wireless fixtures, he decided to add Freedom Par and Freedom Strip Mini fixtures to his setup. Read on for his thoughts on the Freedom series.
1. Why did you select a Chauvet fixture?
I started using Chauvet products on day one of my DJ career. I did my research before I made my purchases and found Chauvet to be a very well-known brand with great warranties and top notch customer service. They also have a new customer loyalty program which helps my company earn new products.
2. Why did you decide to add the Freedom series to your setup?
The product had very high ratings online, is priced very well and is a perfect fit for my application. We have a Freedom Strip Mini that we place behind our DJ setup and 12 – 15 Freedom Par wash lights to uplight our events. We incorporated the Freedom series to replace our COLORdash Accent fixtures.
4. What do you like best/least about the Freedom series?
The best feature is the 100% wireless power and control. The feature I like least is the size. I wish the fixture was a little smaller and weighed a little bit less, but still featured the same brightness and output.
5. How have these fixtures changed your set up/break down time?
The Freedom series has changed our set up significantly. It used to take between 30 minutes to an hour to set up. Then, it took us the same amount of time to clean up the wired lights. Now, with the wireless Freedom fixtures, it only takes about 5 – 10 minutes to set up and 5 – 10 minutes to break down. The Freedom Par wash lights have made a significant difference to our events.
