Lighting is a product that continues to grow in popularity and the experts at Extreme Audio have been providing quality lighting products and installations to the Richmond area for over 15 years. Some of you are looking for lighting to improve your nighttime driving. Some of you want to see better in inclement weather. Maybe you want to light up that field when you are off-roading. Or, to put it simply, maybe you want to add lighting to your vehicle because you desire a certain look for it. Whatever the case may be, we can help. We have spent a lot of time researching all the different brands out there so we can offer you the best performing, most reliable lighting solutions available. We have products in the following categories:
LED lighting is surely the hottest thing going right now. These lights come in all shapes and sizes, from round to square, to rectangular light bars. We even have the curved light bars that have an aerodynamic look when mounted on your roof. The major advantage of LED technology is lower current draw and very long life expectancy. The disadvantage of LED’s are heat, so it is critical that a LED light has a great heat sink if it is going to last a long time. LED replacement headlight bulbs are another hot product that is continuing to evolve and looks to overtake regular incandescent lighting at some point. Replacement exterior and interior bulbs in LED will dress up your vehicle and give you much better, purer lighting. This product stands at the top of the technology ladder and is the most expensive option.
HID lighting has been popular for several years now, although LED lighting is starting to impact this technology. What HID brings to the table is a a very high quality light, and by changing the bulbs the color of the light can be altered. The heat range of the light is rated in Kelvin or k for short. As you move up the heat range, you go from clear, white light at around 5k to slightly bluish tint, to full on blue. At the extreme heat ranges the light begins to look purple. HID’s are most popular for replacement headlight and fog light bulbs, but there are some companies making off road lighting in HID as well.
Extreme White Lighting
Extreme White lighting is a technology involving normal, halogen bulbs, where a different gas is used, and the result is a light whiter in color, resembling natural sunlight. Normal halogen bulbs look almost yellow in color if you put them near an extreme white bulb at night. What this means to you is the performance is much better with the extreme white bulb. Some of the vendors have also figured out how to get increased output with the same current draw, which is another benefit for you. If you have ever watched any off-road racing over the years, you have seen lots and lots of extreme white lighting on these vehicles. They come in a vast range of sizes, but round is surely the most popular for the bigger stuff, with sizes ranging from 3” in diameter to over 9” on the biggest stuff. This technology is the best value in lighting and still offers a great price to performance ratio.
Light Mounting Accessories
What good is all of this great lighting if you don’t have a way to mount it? For many popular vehicles, we have mounting kits that will put them in stock fog light locations, bumpers, hood, windshield hinges, grills, and the ever popular windshield mounts.
