Actually it is not, atleast on their latest Gen 2.5. They redesigned them and made the control module much smaller, but it does not have the resistor built in. They did this for multiple reasons. First is not everyone needed the resistor, second, they said because of the heat, the built in resistor of the Gen 2 versions may have shortened the life of the control module electronics.
So now the latest Gen 2.5 has a small control module box (about the size of a quarter in the shape of a square). They also have specific resistors for the Tritons that are 100% plug and play right into one of the empty plugs coming from the control box. Its a real nice setup and I am still 100% satisfied with them.
On the VLED gen 2.5 setup that I have, I mounted the square control box onto the actual headlight housing using double sided tape as seen in the picture below. Then the flat V3 resistor I mounted to the body behind the bumper to a flat painted surface using double sided tape.
Sorry for this being in the Philips LED thread, so if anyone has further questions regarding the VLED system, pleas respond in my other thread which is also at the top of the page.
