So i came upon an idea for my car last night, I am wanting to modify a (car)projector housing to accommodate a 100w LED. The led's i've found are rated at 10k Lumens each. getting it into the projector is not a problem, the problem is, I have NO idea how hot these are going to get. I am assuming I will need a heatsink of some sort, how hot does a 100w led get? air cooled vs water cooled? run a detour from the radiator through small piping for the "heatsink"? I would also like to put in a dimmer dial for them. this will be quite the project but im excited! these will be the main light source for night driving, in a projector with a clean cutoff.
any links or personal experience would be very helpful, just trying to really grasp what im getting myself into. the end result would be 2 low beams and 2 fogs = 40,000 lumens.
My current set up is 55w 5,000k HID's, which are very very nice, lows and fogs, total producing around 5500-6500 lumens
but why settle for that when you can have something ridiculous and unnecessary right?
