MAC Viper Beam


This unique beam fixture with linear zoom system projects a super-narrow pencil beam of high intensity light and is available as an easy-to-install front lens replacement kit for any standard MAC Viper AirFX. Ideal for big beam effects and long throws, it houses the same high-quality feature set as the MAC Viper AirFX, including a vibrant color mixing system and stunning aerial effects, and has inherited the same compact form, impressive speed and superior light quality from a 1000-watt lamp.
