4300k bulbs a bit yellowish?
 
Steve,

I had my kid brother pick up the Xtreme kit via your web-site and I had him order 4300 to get the whitest light output possible for his 08 WK. I had 5000k on mine and they had a very slight blue tint which isn't well liked by CPD which I never cared, After installing his lights, I had him leave the Jeep running with the lights on for 20 minutes to ensure a good break in of the kit. After that time, I noticed the bulbs to have a Halogen yellowish look to them, is this normal for your 4300k bulbs on the 35 watt kit?

All grounds are good and both relays are installed, any ideas?

Thanks

YES its normal. unless you put it into a projector then it will be more closer to 5000K than 3000K.


i have those LED fogs and they are 4100. they have some YELLOW. just how it is.

Yeah, exactly what Rob said. If you look at Philips 85122 or 85122+ they have a pretty yellowish hue to them. Most agree that the human eye perceives a yellow color better than blue.

yup it the optics in the lens that remove the yellow in a projector setting.


those LED fogs I made are work lights. supposed to be as close to sunlight as possible. they rate themselves 4100-4300. and there is def a touch of yellow in them.

I don't think I've seen your LED fogs. Do you have a thread about them?

Those definitely look cool and I give you props for building that. I would still prefer a setup with more output. I tend to think an LED fog is for looks mainly since I've seen ones for the WJ on Ebay that probably have s*** for output.

I don't do that too much since I try to be relevant with what I have lol. What kind of projectors did you use in that fog setup? I'm so tempted to get a pair of Morimoto Mini H1's or D2S's and do a fog retrofit.

you need smaller if you are embedding in a oem housing.


if you scroll that thread you can see exactly what I used.

the retrofitsource now sells some small ones. like a 2 inch lens.

the hard part was making sure I set up the cut off correctly.
