Hi Kntry!

Hi Tvadna,

Good questions. Aside from the variety of spectrums and thus broad selection of color renditions we build (plus custom spectrums, of course), high PAR is one of the most compelling...

Hi Latchdan,

For your setup, a Dutch 6300 in Original Series should provide more than enough PAR (the dimmer will still be a good idea). The only reason to go for the XB Dutch spectrum is if...
