    Louis is looking rough...

    He's looking like his usual self - minus his hair being combed. Software patches coming for issues SNM found after the product was released.... now that's looking rough.

    Code3 Ecco sold

    What does code3 have more of? Optics or owners? LOL....

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it Tomar?

    There's only so many ways you can build led lights - look a like pieces are inevitable.

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it Tomar?

    I disagree - Tomar sucks on brightness too. When they first released the scorpion lightbar, I couldn't believe how dim their 6 led modules were. They've made improvements, including 3 website redesigns in the past 2 years, but it still surprises me they are still in business. Their products...

    Identify this lighthead...

    Those sure look like optix modules. Then again, it's code3, KING OF NEW OPTICS EVERYWEEK! I think what you have is just a variation of the optix module for lightbars. It could be torus modules, but those were too new for a mx7000...

    Tecniq D21 Rocker Panel

    I picked up a set to play around with a few months ago and I was kind of disappointed with it. The light intensity and beam pattern is very directional - it's most intense head on and that's it. There is no off axis. This limits the applications you can use this for and it you plan on using...

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it Tomar?

    It's an interesting design. Giant twin i beam main bar makes it stupid heavy, but a great heatsink for the led light heads. The lightheads are interchangeable from incandescent/strobe/led. The led optics are uniquely tomar. And best of all, it completely ignores providing angled...

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it Whelen Engineering?

    I think whelen and (possibly soundoff signal) are the only 2 companies that have been shown on camera to be nearly 100% vertically integrated (products are manufactured from scratch). From time to time, I like to check out their website, click on "new products" and see if they're still...

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it Tomar?

    I've always been fascinated by their products and their bizarre design choices (exterior lightbar stick, completely open to the elements, with the expectation water will "drain" out the gaps in the front lens holder, while the electronics are completely unsealed and exposed to the elements)...

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it SoundOff Signal?

    Quite a bit of their stuff is imported. Everything here for example is from China: I've used some of those products and they are off exceptional quality and design. I don't think there's anything wrong with filling your product bench with...

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it JDI?

    Does the Illumis come with a dim mode for night and more than 1 flash pattern? That bar has yet to flash even one time.

    What is a true manufacturing company? Is it Feniex Industries?

    I am legit surprised to see the opinion on elightbars do a complete 180. It sounds like the folks who were saying feniex was nothing more than a speedtechlight rebrand advertising experiment were on the right track. I like their products, but it always seemed like they were an assembly/import...

    ECCO carries the nova line now. Check out their site and see if they have an instructional manual for your product.

    Ecco 5280 - disassemble?

    I think you might be confusing it with the single head version. The single head version has a removable cover. Version 1 had a cover that wasn't removable. Version 2 had a twist off cover... that was also damn near impossible to remove.

    Ecco 5280 - disassemble?

    I just went and took a look at mine. The lens must be glued on. Have you tried contacting ecco directly? The product page mentions "service free life". I interpret that as meaning the light can't be opened to fix anything, which is a real shame...

    HELP - from our electronics gurus

    It forces the electrical current to travel only one way in a circuit. Not having it there will lead to other electrical problems - it's a GM. Who knows what else this circuit controls. You should definitely replace it.

    2019 Product Release...

    Yet again, Soundoff Signal got copied with the mirror idea. It's strange how they don't patent all of their ideas. Feniex's version is near identical in design, unlike code3, federal signal, and whelen's take on it.

    Ecco 7660 dome help

    Looks like that ebay listing is for a second gen model that has a removable lens. The threading doesn't suggest clock or counter clock wise... maybe just up?

    Joe Dorgan and ebay item

    The listing is full of irony. "No sales to Tucson just in case" " Bulb and motor good. Belts slip and reflector turns slow. Paypal only. I've been scammed once with a hot check and bad IOU's by you know who. Bids from the Arizona Attorney General Fraud Squad welcome. "

    Amber LED heads for fog lights

    I wouldn't use it. What happens if it accidentally changes to a flashing pattern? It would be hard to notice in the daytime. For the price of the Whelen ION's, you're better off getting something from feniex industries like Feniex Fusion 100 Light Stick - this light has a decent size metal...

    Anyone else having horrible luck with LifetimeLED?

    I assume you're talking about led headlight bulbs? I've researched various LED bulbs and there's nothing better than HIDS when you factor in cost and performance. HID bulbs last longer, and if properly wired up, HID ballasts will last forever, provided it's a decent ballast to begin with. In...

    States have different colors for police and fire/ambulance. This helps people from out of state know who to pull over for and who to move over for.
