DIY Hockey goal lights

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Being the biggest caps fan I know (as well as the poorest), I had to do something to make my room feel more like the verizon center. This setup has 19 inch legs as a base, 1 1/4 inch dowels, and the wood I used for the box is a 1x8 plank I procured from home depot for 8 or 9 bucks. The lights on the outside are Thomas and Betts Red Dot VAG-01 (the red and green glass bulbs are like 60 each so i'm sticking with colored bulbs), the center light was just a beacon light I picked up from a party store. They are plugged into three seperate remote controlled AC adapter plugs, its called superswitch and i got it from costco for like 15 bucks.

I also made an ambient light setup for my television using the stand itself, 1/2 inch dowels come out from the goal light stand into 3/4 inch dowels across, 1/2 inch dowels up and down. Again, being a poor college student, I am only using christmas lights right now.

For anyone looking for an inexpensive, remote controlled goal light to round out your home "arena", check out this goal light: http://thegoallight.com/

It used multiple LCDs to simulate a rotating goal light. It also has the horn sound (which can be turned off).

I am not affiliated with thegoallight.com but I listen to a podcast by one of the makers of the product.

That setup looks awesome. I have a question about hooking up a speaker so when I kick the light on it plays a Chelsea Dagger clip. Do you know the best way to do this? I'm struggling to find anything on the internet for an easy solution.
