p.1 #1 · Compatable strip lights


I have a couple Excalibur Lights (SP studio systems) . I'm trying to get a couple 1x 4 or 1x3 strip boxes to use with these, but I am not Familiar with how all these things work together.

Can anybody point me in the right direction brand boxes (decent) and the Speed rings needed. I can't seem to figure this stuff out.

Well, I can find speed rings to connect SP Softboxes with other brand Monolights , but can't seem to find speedrings to connect other softboxes to sp monolights . The problem Sp Studio Systems doesn't make Strip Boxes ( at least I haven't found any).

I guess maybe none of the bigger names bother trying to make their boxes compatble with SP Lights.I was hoping to use the two I have on each side .

I don't know what kind of mount the SP lights use, but if it's a common one like a Bowens mount or a Balcar mount then speedrings will be easy to find.

Is there a dealer or distributor you can call to find out what mount it is? (I looked online, but nothing I found says it.)

Its 3 1/2 inch Diameter , and has three L shape cutouts that are held on by Handscrews . B & H sells the SP Stuff ,but there isn't alot that they make.

I found This ,but it got bad reviews. It may be my only option if I want to use these lights for the side lights.

I may have to get different lights and only use the excaliburs with grids and the softboxes they offer. The mounting system Sucks.

The Westcott Apollo Strip 16 x 30" sets up like an umbrella and doesn't require speed rings at all. Very handy.
