XMLITE EXP370 170W LED BSW Hybrid Moving Head
The XMLITE EXP370 is part of a new generation of LED moving heads that is catching up on the lamp version of counterparts, in a big way. Traditionally, and up to today, BSW type moving heads are all lamp based due to their superior output. That does come with its own downsides, like heat and fan noise. Progression in LED chip technology has allowed LEDs to challenge bright lamps. 600W LED engines are already entering the market trying to replace some of the 1500w rivals. On the mid tier market, including local theatres, education, performing arts, stages and various clubs with ceiling of no more than 6 meters high, the 150-200W LED moving heads are almost preferred since their lamps will likely outlast the fixture itself.
That said, the EXP370 wins hands down if you compare it to most other LED moving fixtures in this category. You will find most of the features usually only available in the more higher end products such as:
- A second gobo wheel, with self rotating and exchangeable gobos
- Linear frost
- 3.5-37° zoom angle
- 8 facet and 3 facet prism glass
The wider zoom angle makes it especially versatile to cope with various ceiling heights at different venues. Linear frost is mostly not seen in other LED moving heads at this output and price mark. The 8 and 3 facet prism glass will add a lot more possibilities to creative lighting design. Most other moving heads at this range only have a 3 facet prism.
