    Last year I used 2811 strips to outline my roofline. This year I am thinking of switching to 2811 Technicolor pixels to give a more traditional C9 look. My house is roughly 25 feet from the viewer. From those who have used them will 6" spacing look to sparse and if so should I go with 4" spacing. Realizing that incandescent C9 are spaced 12" I am just curious for input from those who are more versed than me. Also what appears more uniformly bright, the smooth clear cover or the faceted one? Below is the front of my house. Thanks for any input.

    wow, you have the PERFECT house for christmas lighting ;) And on a corner too!! you could go fully Griswold on that place!! icicles from that steep roofline.... wow

    As it's fairly close to the street, the standard 4" would be ok, but possibly a little bit close - 6" would be more traditional looking, and you could even go 8" spacing to maintain that old-school look.
