They are a little yellow against the 55W LB HID, I read that heat might be a problem in the 4" 510's . . .
What say you?
55 watt HID does not produce any more heat than 55 watt halogen.
55 watt Super White halogen is what my PIAA 4" 510's long range spots came with originally.
I wont damage or make anything melt any more than the standard halogen.
I used 55W 4300k (natural sunlight) in all 4, HB, LB and the PIAA's.
Any higher in colour temp becomes blue'ish and reduces lumens and penetration.
Always go for max penetration
