Guys, I don't know if this is out of place here or if I can get a reply but I'll give it a shot.
I just bought four driving lights (extra lights) for my Ford Excursion and when I went to try them out I was VERY disappointed with the light output.
THey are 100 watts each and they call them bright white. My headlights are 65w Silvania Silverstars which are also pretty white in color temperature.
I then showed my buddy who hooked them up for me and he wasn't impressed either but I took out my Thor or equivalent which has a 100w H4 bulb in it and turned it on and he goes shi*!
I said, that's kinda what the others should be like (with reservation).
Now, I'd like to know if I was wrong or is it similar to what I should get out of those driving lights or what?
Here's the link to what I got for the truck.. http://www.jfmfgcorp.com/catalog/pro...products_id=54
Is it possible that they hooked it up so that they don't get FULL power? You know, like a dimmer?
They hooked them up with relays that came with them and they are all going into the brights so when I turn my brights, they come on too.
We had to bump up the fuse from 15 amps to 25 because it kept blowing fuses.
They also have another fuse for every two lights in the wires so to speak. The little round glass fuses I think of 15 amps for two lights (I have four).
Any ideas/suggestions and also, am I wrong about the output of the H4 vs the H3?
