I was just now able to look at your links.

The Hive lights are decent... the Leko barrel combined with the little Hive "Bee" light would be a decent combo, and not crazy heavy or outrageously expensive. If you went with one of the bigger Hive lights, like the Hornet or the Wasp instrument that you linked to, that might be overkill... both in price and weight.

Leko Barrel + Bee Light = 2.35lbs total, $1300
Leko Barrel + Wasp Light = 6.35lbs total, $1750
Leko Barrel + Hornet Light = 4lbs total, $2200

All three of those combos do the same thing... it just depends on how much output you need... we don't know how bright (or dim) your present setup is.

Again, what is killing you price-wise is pattern projection. If you can give up that, you can find a little fresnel that will do the job for a hundred bucks.
