How to Use American DJ Color Burst LED?

By Sharon R. Lee

The American DJ Color Burst LED is a great light to have in your arsenal. It's got a small footprint, and it's easy to set up, making it ideal for mobile DJs and performers who need something small to use during live events or shows.

Make sure you get it out of the box safely.

  • Remove the light from the box.

  • Make sure to remove all tape, packaging and protective plastic from the unit.

  • Make sure you’ve removed all protective foam or cardboard from around your fixture.

Place it in a safe location.

The first thing you should do when you get your Color Burst LED is to place it in a safe location.

  • Place it on a flat, sturdy surface.

  • Avoid placing it on a carpeted surface.

  • Avoid placing it on a surface that is not level.

Additionally, the Color Burst LED should be placed in an area with good ventilation and away from direct sunlight so that it does not overheat or stop working properly due to excessive heat buildup inside its housing.

Plug it in to a power outlet.

After you've taken the American DJ Color Burst LED out of its packaging, plug it in to a power outlet. Make sure you're using a surge protector, power strip, power bar or just a regular old wall outlet. It doesn't matter—they're all going to work fine!

If your American DJ Color Burst LED has a remote control that uses batteries (not included), now's the time to insert them into the battery compartment.

If it doesn't have one at all or if its batteries are already installed, skip this step and move on down below where we talk about turning on/off lights and changing colors with your hand-held remote control.

Turn on the switch located under the unit.

The first thing you'll need to do is turn on the switch located on the back of the unit. This switch is labeled "on" and will be a small red button that you can push in with your finger.

The location of this switch will vary depending on which Color Burst LED unit you're using, so make sure to check your manual before turning it off and/or on.

Adjust the sensitivity knob.

The sensitivity knob controls the brightness of the light. It is located on the back of the unit and labeled "SENS". It is a dial with numbers from 1 to 10, with 1 being least sensitive and 10 being most sensitive.

If you have a large area to cover, such as if you are doing an outdoor gig, then you may want to set your Color Burst LED unit to a lower sensitivity level to conserve power.

However, if your room is small or has low ceilings, then setting it higher will create more dramatic effects and allow for greater visibility of colors in close proximity.

Adjust the DMX modes/function button as needed.

The function button is used to select the color mode. It’s important to get it right, because if you don’t, it won’t remember the last mode. If you want to change the color of your lights, then use this feature!

There are different modes for DMX controllers. You can also adjust these modes as needed:

Adjust the speed knob for your desired speed output..

Step 2

Turn the speed knob for your desired speed output..

This light is good for live music, events and stage shows.
