nerdly_dood said:The 9000 was considerably better in terms of aesthetics for bars that were less than fully loaded. If you had only a basic 4-strobe version with no other options, it would usually have one-piece lenses plus the endcaps, and the normal black center section. But with the 9M, you'd have a bunch of empty colored sections, each with its own lens, which made it kinda ugly for any lightbar that wasn't fully loaded.
I think 8 strobes was the max number of strobes for the 9000 (except the fancy ones with a dedicated side-facing strobe) but with the 9M, if you want to have an 8-strobe bar, that'll likely leave you with those ugly empty sections in the center, which makes me wish they still offered a black center section in place of the two empty lenses (or, even better, the option to use multiple black double-wide lenses for bars with even fewer options)
jdh said:Not quite. The "Y" or duplex series you could have up to 12 strobes and I have a Lake County SD bar that has 10. You could also get a piecer unit for the center.
You are right on the goofyness on how a 9M looks with only 4 strobes.
