    Being a new member I've only just caught onto the whole strobe idea for my display. Unfortunately i was too late for the acl strobes buy so i am asking about commercial or diy alternatives. If anyone has some info or links I'd appreciate your post. 12v preferably.

    Might be worth a look for a mod. 12v is good, however they look light they only project in one direction. I was hoping for a bulb type arrangement with randomized effect from 12v. $33 not much to pay just to have a look. Thanks for the link

    All the dyi strobes are pretty directional. Mounting 2 units back to back may solve your problem.

    I ordered a panel of strobes for myself just because i figured if i'm building them I might as well have some. I don't have any plans for the 45 I ordered so if you're interested mine are available.

    Thanks Alan
    I'll PM you tomorrow and get the details for cost etc. Thanks for your response. I was a bit late catching the boat on strobes, but as always the question only needs to be asked. Cheers.
