Headlight beam patterns.

So It is time to compare patterns. When I installed the dual HID back in 2010, I took pictures, so same road, but diferent cameras, so perhaps a little bias, but good pattern comparison.
Stock halogen low beam.


HID stock housing Low beam.


Hella Halogen 60mm projector low beam.



Stock Halogen high beam....


HID stock housing High beam...


LED High beam ( note that I had to turn the low beam off. It would mess too much with the aperture, and the picture would not come out even close to the visual presentation, as there was simply too much light. Picture one is LED high beam, with Denaly D2, which really only adds a little front fill. Picture two is LED with low beam on, and you can see the camera mess...


LED high with low beam on. Note the yellow color....



When I took the pictures back in 2010, I used whatever setting of the camera to mimic the closest color temp, and then left it, for all the shots. Same today. I really like the pattern of the 60mm ( mind you it is a lousy stock 9005, as my HID has not arrived yet. The high is good, as the D2's fill in the immediate area. But as Darryl mentioned, there is a filter for the LED that by the flick installs, and I have more spread.

Here is the original HID thread....

Man...... You get to go all the places.... First Rekluse..... Now Cyclops. Nice. I think the perfect combo is a pair of long range, one with the filter on to spread out.

My plan is clear 20 degree ran at %50. High beam second light at %100 with the amber 20 degree in conjunction with the low beam boosted to
%100. Add those to the standard LRs and 530 light bar I should be able to land 747s on Pikes Peak All that light at %100 will draw just over 100 watts.

... No kidding, and truth to be told, the picture dos not come close. Real life it is not that blue. I would say 5500-6000 Kelvin, but there were so much light that the camera toned down white ballace, and ISA. I had locked shutter, and aperture. Pretty silly from one 25 watt LED emitter.

Does that thing have an SST-90 emitter inside?

why do these pictures make me all giddy?

Probably because I know how fun it is to ride at night off road with really good lighting.

I actually have no idea, but ring them, and ask for Darryl. I am sure he can answer that. All I know, is that it is a 25 watt emitter.

It is really not done justice by the camera. I will try to dive into camera settings a little better, as I was holding the low beam, in my hands, camera on tripod...etc.

I've seen first hand how insanely bright the LED is alone and agree, the pictures aren't doing even that part justice. So I can imagine what it's really like with both.

Wink Hacking time....

Room was cut on the lower beam. Mind you, that I did this exact same thing to accommodate the top of the LED....



Then the front hole was cut, and ground into specs....



I like it....... In fact, it really added a nice look ( Pffttttt... Jengel..... don't show your wife....)





Now onward to repair the housing....
