You are gonna need a bigger game then that. I once used my 8x8 to light up an entire baseball field so the little leaguers could play into the night.

My 8x8 has 50 total lights, totaling 2,500,000 mcd of power

the krypton bulbs are very power hungry, my 2 AAs lasted less than 2 hours
but are great for reflector style lights, cause they light up the bucket, not a directional pencil beam like LEDs

When was driving up the trail it looked like a 1:1 with 4 KC Daylighters was following us!!! If you happened to be looking his direction as he came up over something in the trail you would be instantly blind for about 20 seconds. "where did everyone go?"


Better bring if he brings this rig again!

I ordered 50 280,000mcd LEDs.

That's 14,000,000mcd on less than 4 volts.

It's a nice, round number.

Where are you finding those LEDS? I don't have the room for 50 of 'em, but a couple would be nice!
