That's an even better idea. Might have to give that a whirl, looks like there's a dealer quite close to me. My fixture might be lacking the punch to get the most out of trying this but it's seems like it could be a great idea to play with as far a tweaking my current spectrum goes.

Thanks for the link hoppy.
