I just built an Aleph 3 head with a DB1200 WX1S & a MagD with a Magic Resistor running at 1.5A X4T. Now the W bin Aleph 3 head puts out a lot of light & the X bin Mag is even brighter, they just don't seem all that bright to me.
I remember playing with my brother's Space Needles & I had some 3x123 DD LuxV Mags as well years ago, I remember them being crazy bright. The past couple weeks I've been replacing Luxeons in many of my old lights with SSC P4s. I'm so happy with the difference in brightness that I can't stop swapping the Luxeons for Seouls. Guess I'm just used the output of the Seouls?
My 2x123 McLux PR DB917 USXOH looks way brighter than my 3x123 McLux Aleph 3 head DB1200 WX1S. Just the WX1S Aleph 3 head has a bigger hotspot. It's actually quite disappointing! I'm thinking about swapping the WX1S out for a USXOH! What do you guys think? I'll put some beam shots up later when it gets dark.
Doesn't seem like LuxVs are even worth the high price & short runtimes anymore. I was planning on building another 3x123 DD MagC with the other W bin I have laying around but I'm not sure it's even worth the time anymore. Do you guys still use LuxV lights these days?
