let's take a closer look
here are a few pictures to compare a older "vintage" color organ light display to one of our own
Typical 70' type light board with only four tiny clear light bulbs . Two wires comming out of controller and no speaker connection... this is only a two channel mic activated display.
This is a backboard for our M-18 series. Three wires going to controller and a speaker connector....this is a hard wired three channel display. Notice the large 13 colored bulbs used in place of the "smoke and mirror" type of color film that had the 4 small clear bulbs behind the film. Use of the colored bulbs also allows you to rearrange the coloring of your display to your likes. So you can change the colors of your bass-mid-high channels to be what ever color you want...you can't do that with vintage color organs.
View of back and vinyl plastic wrapped particle board cabinet...notice there is no control to set input level sensitivity.
Side view of m-18 color organ. Our cabinets are made from 3/8 inch plywood...never particle board
The backside of our M-18 display. This one has a hard wire speaker connection. Notice there are not one but three level controls to fine tune your display. Our enclosures are made from stained plywood...we never use partacle board. Our mic activated light displays also have the three sensitivity adjustments.
Typical 70's ttype display box. This inner film is what gave the color to lights seen though display.
This is the only way to change out front screen if damaged. Notice the material is partical board.
front view ...now you can see how the clear lights show color
