      OVERVIEW

      Brilliant sparkle light effect, perfect for the gigging DJ or entertainer.

      The Chauvet Swarm 5 FX is a compact, versatile lighting fixture that combines several different technologies to produce one of the smartest, most efficient and effective lighting investments you can make. It uses LED technology as well as laser technology, and straps all of that into a DMX-controlled lighting fixture that additionally features automated chase sequences and sound-activated programs.

      The Swarm 5 incorporates both red and green lasers, eight LED strobe lights and an RGBAW (red, green, blue, amber and white) rotating Derby-style lighting effect. The RGBAW system permits the Swarm 5 to produce any color at all on the lighting spectrum, which when combined with the strobe and the lasers make for an amazing lighting effect.

      So why does Chauvet call it the Swarm? One look and youll understand why. The Swarm 5 projects literally thousands of red and green laser beams which manifest as arrow-straight beams through the air (especially effective through fog) and then as red and green pin spots on the wall. Add in the swimming dots from the RGBAW LEDs and youll feel like you are in the middle of a massive swarm of flying balls of multi-colored light.

      If you have a DMX system, you can control your colors in real time independent of any program chases you have set up. If you dont have a DMX system you can still run a dynamic shows just on the Swarm 5s presets. If you purchase multiple Swarm 5s, you can run them in series in a Master/Slave relationship whereby they all synchronize together for a truly arresting visual presentation.

      The Swarm 5 comes with mounting hardware for attaching to standard lighting trees.

        Great light. You just need one or max two and it covers entire dance floor. It replaced 6 lights that I had.

          I DJ as a hobby, so I try to keep my costs down. For the price, this light offers many options in a small package. Add a little fog and it only gets better.

            I bought this for a cover band playing wedding type gigs. It's a good light, fairly bright and offers a lot of bang for the buck. Just don't expect it to be the same as dedicated strobes, Lasers or moons etc. It is a compromise product, does a bit of everything but you are not getting pro level effects here.
            Lasers are a nice idea but a bit weak.
            Strobes I don't use but the circular pattern has limited options, again, better than nothing.

            That said, for the price you can't beat it.
            For portability and quick setup, again, can't beat it.
            I would buy it again for the same application. I woudl NOT buy this for a club install etc.
            Portability and quick setup with wide range of effects are what this light is about and it does all of that reasonably well for the cost.

            PS. Have not run it DMX, just sound active on the programs that have no strobe.

              Added just one to our stage in our blues venue. Great addition to our LED spots. We leave it on Auto sound activated and kick it in when the dance floor gets going.
              Will probably add a second for complete floor coverage.

                  I was looking for a DMX laser to add to my lighting setup when I stumbled across The Storm FX. WOW! For less than the price of a low end dmx laser I got Strobes, Moon effect and Lasers. The first 2 gigs people raved about it. It can fill a room...
