Classic example of how “less is more” in certain instances. You can have dozens of lightheads flashing in split, seiure, & flickering patterns, or you can accomplish an effective build using a fraction of that amount (mounted in all the right places, of course) if set on simple, whole flashing patterns. If I had to choose just ONE flash pattern that I could use for everything in an install, a single flash or signal alert would be my pick.
I am a big fan of flashing blocks of lights together, especially if you can center mount the takedownws.
Assume a bar like:
I'll set the bar up so all the blues fire together and alternate with all of the reds. You are effectively creating a larger "footprint" of light. There's a reason the big "E" at the top of the eye chart is easiest to read.
