Hey everybody!

I'm about to purchase a light kit and I'm kind of struggling on making a choice. I'd like to spend no more than $500-600.

1. I love the amount of light that a tungsten kit emits, however, the heat and the color temperature are my two biggest turn offs. And yes I've considered fan-cooled tungstens, but they'd be too loud for our small sets!

2. I love the idea of fluorescents being as cool as they are, and having the capability of daylight or tungsten balanced temperatures. My only concerns are the lack of a hard beam of light if the occasion arises where I'm needing to throw a hard beam through a window to cast some streaks.

I'm hoping for something around 3000w,

For flo's, something like this: http://www.amazon.co...ef=pd_rhf_p_t_2

For tungstens, maybe something like this: http://www.ebay.com/...#ht_2274wt_1413

I'd love to have a cool, daylight balanced, light kit that emits a ton of light and has barn doors to place it.

Does anyone have any advice as for what I could do?

Thank you so much for your time!
