Frequently Asked Questions 


What does the Gamut Par H7 include?

The Marq Lighting Gamut Par H7 includes the following items:

  1. Gamut PAR H7
  2. IEC cable (power cable)
  3. DMX cable

Does the Gamut Par H7 have DMX capability?

Yes it does!  The Gamut Par H7 has the traditional DMX IN and DMX OUT ports.  This allows you to use these lights with a qualified DMX controller, and with the proper DMX Cables.

What is DMX?

DMX is a lighting control protocol.  Here is a link to a great article that will help explain the fundamentals of DMX.

How do I set up the Gamut Par H7 with DMX?

If you are going to use the Marq Lighting Gamut Par H7 with a DMX controller, follow the steps suggested below:

  1. Connect a DMX cable from the DMX output on the DMX controller that you are using, and attach it to the DMX input on the Gamut Par H7.  Below is a picture showing this.

  1. You can chain up to 25 Gamut Par H7 control boxes together by linking each through the built in DMX output to the DMX input of the following unit.

  2. These will operate over 3 channel modes, 11, 8 and 6.  To see what each channel mode does please refer to pages 6-10 of the manual.

What is the Powerlink feature? 

The Powerlink feature lets you link up to 6 Gamut Par H7's together with power cables (IEC cables).  One reason to do this may be if you have a shortage of wall outlets or power supplies to plug multiple units into. You can then power all of them when having just one Marq Lighting Gamut Par H7 connected to a wall outlet. 

  1. Insert the included power cable into the wall and then the other end into the Marq Lighting Gamut Par H7.
  2. On the opposite power plug on the Marq Lighting Gamut Par H7 you will see a power jack that works the opposite way.  On this jack plug the opposite end of an IEC cable here.

  3. Now plug the other end of the power cable into the power jack of another Marq Lighting Gamut Par H7.  This will supply power to the Marq Lighting Gamut Par H7.

Does the Gamut Par H7 have a Sound-Active mode?

The Gamut Par H7 does have an automatic "sound active" mode.  This allows the unit to operate independently and perform an "easy show" for you, free of a DMX controller.

  1. Press the MENU button to access the Gamut PAR H7’s menu.
