Hello.

I'm making a beer pong table and have a couple of questions. In the center of the table i will be cutting out my school logo and replacing it with plexiglass. I want to place lights under each of the letters and a 2" bar thats below it. The logo will be about 10 x 30 in. I want to attach the lights to a chaser so i get some cool effects you know. I found a 5 channel chaser kit, but realized that the cost of that plus power supply's for the chaser and lights would cost more than getting a DJ light chaser which has the power supply for the chaser and the lights all in one package. So here's my question:

The chaser is switchable between 110-230 V and has a capacity of 600 Watts/ channel. I don't want to blind people with this, so could i use low wattage lights?

Do you have a link to the unit? I think what you may be looking at is the input voltage and not the output voltage. If the smallest output voltage is 110VAC then you will have to go with conventional bulbs since most low wattage lights are LED and generally these come in low voltage packages (2 volts to 12 volts DC)

In that case I would use some small C7 or C9 bulb bases and lamps. There are LED replacement bulbs that you could look at but there are very expensive... You would be looking at around 5 watts per light.
