Spin or not spin - It can be easier to install a mirror ball without a motor and the effect can be just as good. Adding a motor simply adds the effect of moving as opposed to static spots of light on the room’s walls. The choice is yours. The bigger the ball the larger and heavier the motor.
- Up to 30cm Mirror Ball - Battery Powered Mirror Ball Motor - MBMB
- Up to 60cm Mirror Ball - Mirror Ball Motor - MBM10
Lighting up - Lighting up the mirror ball obviously lights up the ball but it also gives the effect of the “light spots” on the walls. This is achieved by using mirror ball pin spot lights. These shoot a narrow focussed beam of light onto the ball concentrating the light onto the ball and not having it “spill” all over the room.
To achieve an even spot effect on all 4 walls a set of 4 Pin spot lights is needed (link). Each light has a number of setting you may choose from. A single set colour, slow colour fade from one colour to another or sound activated colour change.
For Mirror balls 75 cm and up a high power profile light is recommended (link profile)
Regardless of ball size hanging a mirror ball and motor can be difficult. Ensure you have enough time and a ladder to install it safely.

Setting up a disco mirror ball is not difficult but also not easy and should only be undertaken by someone who is “handy” with repair and maintenance around the home. A ladder is a necessity for safe installation. A power extension also needs to be run to the motor which needs to be taken into consideration when deciding where to install the motor.
