  1. Hi there fellow Rhodies.. Been at it for a couple of years now with a small display.Just a couple of light strings and a couple of channels to help make the neighborhood look festive. Owen
  2. it all depends on how smooth you want the chase to look.The more channels you have the smoother it's going to look.My first year I did 6 channels on 20' arch.The 2nd year I had 6 channels on 10' arches.Looked much smoother. You could improve the smoothness by using the fade up and fade down on the channels imo.
  3. BHays had a thread here but it's lost during the various site upgrades.Here is a link to the pictures of his fireworks project: http://www.facebook....78690742&type=1

  7. http://www.mobileblackbox.com/content/view/42/76/ This is what I used..great little unit.
  8. You cannot claim the money you collect because it's someone else's money.You are merely the person who collects the money and pass it on to the charity.Now if you donated money out of your own pocket, then you can claim that.This is from an IRS guy that I know.
  9. You have to contact the charity first to get their permission/fill out some paperwork and you should be ready to go.They are all more than happy to have you collect donations on their behalf.
  10. All power to you..you have to know your visitors/ IMO..Personally I like the music but I wouldn't use it in my display.I .
  11. I like to leave the house and go far away...Just sick of seeing cars lined up in front of my house night after night after night.It's like Ground Hog Day. It was fun at first, but it has gotten really old.
  12. Chuck Downs has several trees waving(51 sec mark) and it looks spectacular.He uses a lift to wrap his trees.
  13. Ordered mine from the same place(great folks over there) and received it-great little invention

  15. ..sorry I am gonna have to pass on voting since both you and Mike Z are great PC members with epic displays and I like them both...
  16. It is important to mention that there are strobes that flash 2-3 times a second and ones that flash 3-4 times a second. The 3-4 times a second ones are the best kind IMO.They give out that wow factor when they come on.I was originally going to go with them but I read somewhere that you ave to drill holes in them to combat moisture issues. I use the 2-3 flash/sec type and the problem with those is that when you first turn them on, they seem to all flash together, then there's a pause and takes a few seconds to randomize.To fix this, I use 4 channels for my strobes and put them on with abo
  17. Great job..a lot of work you put in for your 1st year.
  18. PM me your email and I'll send it.
  19. Thanks for updating us with those sites. *thumbs up*
  20. Try this place.. http://store.fivesta...&products_id=53 That's a pretty good price but I haven't ordered from them before. If you do order, let us know if they're any good.
  21. That is Amazing.So much attention to detail.Even Frosty's guitar is personalized and the DJ's records are actually spinning.lol.

    Outdoor Speakers

    I use those on my display.It's not the best sound but it was cheap and most visitors are in their cars listening to their own speakers.
