He also built EPIX 2.0 bars into the wall behind the DJ booth, added five configurations of 32 EPIX 2.0 strips each on the ceiling and positioned EPIX 2.0 strips behind the frosted glass in the VIP area. The LD accented the EPIX lighted columns with 20 Intimidator Spot LED 350 moving fixtures from Chauvet DJ in four groups of five.
