I have two expensive moving heads that will be used for exterior washing of buildings so needed some reliable protection from the changeable UK weather. There are very few options available for protecting fixtures located outdoors, the Showtec dome is one, or you can take your chances with similar units from China/Far East. I opted for the Showtec given the quality of the brand and the outstanding customer/aftersales service offered by Thomann.
This dome will not disappoint. If you are wondering about the high price tag, as soon as the unit arrives you can see why. It is fantastic quality, built to last, solid and perfectly suited to handle even my large, 575w HTI moving heads. The light leaves the domes perfectly and as it does it actually makes quite a nice feature out of the dome itself, like a big, uplit bubble. It is a little loud but then it has two monster fans powering it and helping keeping your moving head cool. Inside the dome are two plugs, 16a socket and a two pin europlug. Both can be used at the same time - great as I have a standalone DMX controller to power inside the bubble. There is an exhaust port which can also be used for feeding DMX cables through. The unit itself does come with a rather pointless 2 pin plug on it. You will definitely want to swap this for an IP rated 16a connector. I will be shortly ordering another one of these and have the 1m battern version on the way too. Just great.
