Where can I find a storm controller which can operate some strobes and speakers?
The issue I have with almost every lightning generator is the lack of reality. Most controllers just react to the sound input so the lights flash everytime the thunder strikes. The ONLY time that happens is when YOU get struck by lightning!!!
In reality the light flashes then a second or so later and you hear the thunder (remember speed of sound is 1,126 feet per second).
Easiest way to accomplish this is to buy or make a color organ. On your MP3 player (or CD player) record your thunder track on the left side, then offset the track a second or two later and record on the right track. Send the the left track (first sound) to the color organ, send the right track to a sound system to amplify to your area.
Now the color organ will react to the sound and dim the lights, then a second later you hear the thunder rumbling....reality!!!
Here's a kit you can build: http://www.goldmine-elec-products.co....asp?dept=1064
I've used them, they work great.
It also has the capability of dimming a channel to simulate the power going out.
Come check out the FireFly in action for yourself at our booth at the National Haunters Convention.
Which unit is good for a 20x5 room? The entry model?
