8 strobe MX7000...leave it, or?

I just got done converting what was left of a 4 strobe / 3 rotator MX to an 8 strobe bar.


The bar has 8 upper strobes, empty center section (at the moment), 2 TD's, alleys, sweeps & flashers.


I have about 6 more bars just like this one (4 strobe, 3 rotator) & could either:


A - Leave it as an 8 strobe, put in a center rotator & be done with it.


B - Add another 4 head P/S to the center & put 4 more strobes in it.


I like the idea of 4 more LOWER deck linear strobes (which I have) so there are strobes pretty much everywhere AND it saves me a wire I believe. & I could let them just 'go crazy'.


OR add 2 lower deck strobes someplace (I was thinking in place of the sweeps) & a front & rear / center for a total of 10 in the upper level. But then I would have to mess around with splicing into the front/rear cutoff wire(s).


Thoughts?

I like the look of an MX7000 with rotators on the ends, an an oscilaser in the center, with just two upper strobes facing the front and two upper strobes facing the rear. Now, adding linear strobes to the lower portion of the bar too--that would be interesting.

I'd replace the oscilaser with a rotator but apart from that, IMO that is the best lightbar setup on earth. (seriously, it's, like, perfect)


I do like the look of a strobe lightbar that's normally used with rotators - such as the MX7000 or Vista - with colored strobes inside clear domes.


Anyway... Trust me, you want this lightbar. Strobe MX7000s aren't very common. My advice would be to put as many strobes in it as you wish to add, just for a unique custom job.

For now I'm going to go with 2 upper center strobes (a front & a rear) & 2 lower deck strobes between the takedown & intersection light(s).


Just need to do some trimming on the brackets for the lower strobes (or make new ones).
