The all-rounder at it's best

The brilliant and versatile Sparx 18, with 37x 40W LED power, enables impressive washlight applications in completely innovative dimensions thanks to the innovative TwinZoom. The basic color temperature of the Sparx 18 is freely selectable and it runs extremely quietly thanks to special heatpipe cooling.

The optical system guarantees perfectly homogeneous illumination and enables fascinating color gradients with uniquely diverse beam effects and shapes from Soft Edge to Hard Edge for lighting design at its absolute best.

TWINZOOM-EFFECT

Exclusively from JB-Lighting - the patented TwinZoom. With the TwinZoom, the outer LED ring and the inner area can be zoomed separately from each other - completely infinitely variable from 3°–70° (1:23). Together with the LED single pixel control, absolutely innovative, aesthetically pleasing and effective light scenes can be created, of which one did not dare to dream.

BASIC COLOR TEMPERATURE CAN BE SELECTED


The basic color temperature, from which all colors are automatically mixed, is freely selectable on the Sparx 18, making it an excellent addition to any lighting ensemble.
2700 K
3200 K
4200 K
5600 K
6000 K
6500 K
7000 K
8000 K

STEPLESS ZOOM: 3° – 70° (1:23)


The luminosity and zoom range of 3°–70° of the Sparx 18 are impressive. Virtually noiseless, absolutely precise and fast, the Sparx 18 changes from extremely narrow to wide beam distribution. When TwinZoom is used, you can be sure of its wow factor.
Narrow beam (min. 3°)
Wide distribution (max. 70°)

HARD EDGE & SOFT EDGE


Precise and extremely homogeneous light projections can be created thanks to the diffused light-optimised beams of the Sparx 18 – based on the large and completely borderless transparent lenses, which are lined up almost seamlessly with one another, and with the help of the TwinZoom.
Hard Edge
Soft Edge

MULTICOLOR BEAMS & BEAM SHAPES


The Sparx 18 makes it possible to produce the highest quality multicolor beams and color gradients. Impressive beam shapes can also be achieved which are unique in this form.

OPTIONAL: BEAMSHAPE MODULE


The continuously rotatable and positionable beam shape creates asymmetrical, oval beams. This beam form is suitable e.g. in the theatre excellent as an aisle light or at trade fairs for the illumination of rectangular objects. Of course, the TwinZoom can also be used in this case to individually adjust the beam width and characteristics. In combination with the endless rotation of the Beamshape module, extremely dynamic, circular animation effects can also be achieved.

Testimonials

The high quality, ease of servicing and direct exchange of knowledge with the manufacturer were crucial for us when buying JB devices.

The JB Sparx 18 are ideally suited to our very wide (18 m) T.3 stage, as these moving light spotlights cover a zoom range of 3-70 degrees. Another advantage is that these spotlights fulfil two functions within one device for us: it is possible to selectively illuminate a performer and to make the area around them a different colour, and all this can be done with one spotlight. Furthermore, the Sparx 18 are hung at around 6 m in the auditorium. No fan noise can be heard by the audience, and this had long been a major problem before. Finally, we are also able to deploy moving lights in the performance, as the movements and functions are quiet and unobtrusive.
