    Beam,

    You should ask to have this thread moved to the "homebuilt & modified" forum. Plenty of info for this sort of build.

    You'll most likely destroy an SST-50 at 7 amps. The biggest lens you can get. An SST-50 makes a poor aspheric LED. Might as well just get a nice XR-E R2 reflector light. Throw will be about the same and spot size will be about the same. All on less than 1.4 Amps.

    Don't.

    Try it with an xre r2 and it's nice. The sst will not do well in an aspheric unless you get the one with no dome and even then it's not as good as the xre. Plus 7 will probably kill it.

    I forgot to mention that the XR-E LED looks like a square block of light, whereas the SST-50 looks like a series of closely spaced lines when used as an aspheric.

    beam24, you really do need to think mopre carefully about where your posts belong. You've recently posted quite a few things in the wrong place.

    This thread very obviously belongs in the H&M section, as ^Gurthang says. I'm moving it there now.
    Resistance is futile...

    With throwers the bigger the lens the better..66mm is about as big as you can go without starting to spend a bit of cash. The Hid kits on ebay will get you around 2.5 to 3 inches, but you have to buy them in pairs. Techjunkie has been going crazy with these kind of builds I'm sure he could give you some useful information.
