Spot the Difference
On the whole, there aren’t many major differences between each of the designs as they all offer dazzling light performances at an entry level price point. These designs will definitely appeal to those who are looking for mobile lighting options without a hefty price tag. The biggest differences lie in the number of heads on offer and the range each item reaches. The Spot Duo has two heads unlike the singular headed design found on the Spot 155 and 255, as a result it offers a broader range of light. Another key difference is that the Spot Duo is linkable to other units, offering the opportunity to double the intensity and liveliness of the light show, as it can be linked to other units without the use of mains. Each of the designs in the Intimidator range has the same array of colour options so you can be assured of an exuberantly vivid light show, whichever model you choose.
