  • Using Two Different Systems

    I have two firing systems. One is a 3-module 12-cue system like this: http://www.pyroboom.com/images.aspx?productid=39
    The other is an S32I Dewey: http://remotefiringsystems.com/s32i-...firing-system/

    If I used them both for my show, would that cause any issues? For what it's worth the little modules will be 30-50 feet away from the Dewey, and I'll have a clean line of sight to each system.

    Using multiple systems works almost all of the time, I do it often. If you can test them both with just a few blank ematch or talons and they work fine, then they will likely be fine in real life. Those 2 systems may use the same chip, but most systems are designed to only work with one remote with a certain ID. I know that Cobras do well with other systems, but I have only used a Dewey a few times. Good luck.

      years ago we had a complicated setup and not enough cobras... wound up using three different systems

      cobra for the main
      a dewey for the shore stuff
      and some of those cheap china cubes for a special cue

      so we wound up having 3 shooters at the table, i sat in the center and was able to look left and right to the other pyros and tell them when they had cues coming

      worked out great and kept everyone involved and it was a lot of fun

      it's one of my favorite shows our group has ever shot

        Thanks everyone. I did a little test using both systems and didn't have any issues. I could even fire each system at the same time. Ready to roll!
