Silhouette Borealis XL Z Wash


The Borealis is a nice wash moving light with some great features including control of (3) rings of light on the face, fast movement, and nice colors.

From the Manufacturer:

Our Borealis XL Z is a new addition to the Silhouette Borealis Series.
One of our bigger Wash movers, it is equipped with a 37×25 watt fixture with the capability of a 10º – 60º zoom range. RGBW color mixing, CTO, 3 zone ring control and a variety of dimming curves allows the user to creatively color wash a stage or venue with all of these features.
Being such a powerful fixture, we did include a smart cooling system which allows the fan speed to lower or raise itself depending on the intensity and internal temperature of the fixture.

From the GEAR Pro's:

The Borealis XL Z is a great, simple wash light that does it's job well for a great price. It's bright, moves fast, and has a really high-quality build. 

It's got all of the standard features like a 10º – 60º zoom range, RGBW color mixing, and fun adds like the 3-ring control.

If we had to critique something about it, it would be that it only goes to down to 10º. Some other fixtures (that are more expensive) can go down to 5º or lower, which gives the beam a really cool, defined beam, but we can't say we've seen another fixture at this quality level and cost which had that!
