Bulbs

Post by Wackhaus » Wed Jun 10, 2020 3:07 pm

I have a voxbox and noticed it no longer illuminated when switched on lol.
I'd rather ask first and procure the appropriate bulb before opening anything up.

Also, what are the recommended bulbs for a 120 curve multiplex?
I also have a flat panel wall display from the old museum of holohraphy in ny which still has its original bulb for now. It actually burns so hot I had to mount the display on a separate plaque as not to burn into the wall..
Thanks :)

Bob Hess should be able to tell you what kind of bulb for the voxbox. For a 120 multiplex, a clear incandescent bulb with a vertically oriented linear filament is best - 60 watt should be fine. They can be tough to find though. 100w runs a little hot. These will work but the eBay supplier below often sends horizontally oriented filaments instead of the vertical filament in the photo. That would mean redesigning how the bulb is usually mounted in the display to be useful.

Hiiiii jodi, yes I've been trying to contact Bob,

Is there a little dance I should do? Or like, some sort of drum circle chant to plead to the hologods to have him answer my prayers etc?

Did you find a solution? I also have a multiplex box and I'd like to know if a led light would work the same as an old filament one or if I have to buy a special one. What kind of voxbox do you have?

I'm so sorry for not getting back about the bulbs for the Voxboxes. I'll dig into the stack that fills the gazebo in the back yard and send a few.
