Arri ArriMax 18/12 Head

The original Academy Award-winning ARRIMAX remains the ultimate choice for productions requiring maximum light output. The 580 mm (22.8”) diameter, parabolic facetted reflector provides continuous focus adjustment from 15° to 50° beam angle and, since the ARRIMAX does not require a set of spread lenses, shadows are sharp and easily cut.

Safe and easy for both lamp type bases 18/12 kW, 18,000 W single ended lamps use a sturdier GX51 lamp base for which ARRI engineers have designed a special lampholder that alleviates mechanical stress from the lamp pins, now serving only as an electrical connection. The lamp clamping mechanism is self-aligning and uses a rugged, recessed lamp lock handle. To ensure that crews can easily use 12,000 W lamps or versions of 18,000 W single ended lamps with G38 bases, the new lampholder accepts either lamp type with no modification or adjustment.
