Unpack the system and you can see that a lot of thought has gone into all of the hardware. The fixtures are lightweight and robust yet very compact. After un-packing you only need to plug in the mains cable and the multi-core from the footswitch controller and you're ready rock. The Equinox R&D team have managed to make the lamp housings around 4cm deep, which makes the system very compact when packed away.
Four identical LED arrays are fitted to a T-bar, which also houses the electronics, including a mode display and buttons for Menu, Up and Down. When foot mode is selected the unit is essentially in foot-controller mode, which can be either sound activated or based on one of nine presets.
Each lamp sits in an adjustable bracket, giving plenty of vertical and horizontal adjustment, and connects to the T-bar via a locking connector that can remain in place when packing. The T-bar itself fits onto the included tripod stand and comes supplied in its own road bag. The rest of the system fits into the padded zip-up case, which has a side pocket large enough to hold the footswitch.
The Maxi Bar houses 432 Ultra bright 10mm LEDs split between blue, green and red. When used in combination, these can produce pretty much any colour, including white. Overall, the power consumption is a nominal 64W.
The system has full DMX control and can be set to any one of 15 DMX channels although it is likely that most users will rely on the footswitches and the automatic modes. If more lighting bars are required, they can be connected in master/slave fashion using standard XLR cables. The footswitch unit is gratifyingly robust, with a folded steel case and very substantial switches. There are four switches in all, which are labelled: Preset, Sound, Hold and Blackout. Preset mode steps through nine options, which comprise of seven static colour choices, an automatic colour change, or a morph between colours. When Sound is activated, the unit is triggered from a microphone built into the T-bar, which has its own sensitivity control. In this mode the system steps through a series of built-in chases with some involving individual arrays being switched on and off, and others involving all the arrays in a colour change sequence. Hold freezes the current lighting state, whereas Blackout kills all the lamps.
