  • 9006 led bulb

    Hi everyone,

    I am not very familiar with led bulbs or electrical work so please bear with me.

    I currently have a dummy projector that can accept 9006 led bulbs. The ones I had died so I'm in search for a replacement. I bought two from DDM tuning and tested them both out. The first one were great; however, because of the style, you can see all the individual LEDs and it's unappealing to me. The second LED was exactly what I wanted however it was way too bright. I can't adjust the light projection so I don't want to blind on coming drivers. I'm using these as DRL so I don't need high output.

    Are there any LEDs out there that fit what I'm looking for?

    Thanks!

    Since the second bulb is the one you prefer, you may be still able to use it with a pwm dimmer.

      Hey Evo77,

      thanks for the suggestion. Do you know if there are any other bulbs that are just direct plug and play? The PWM dimmer is probably my last choice at the moment due to the modding needed.

        Unfortunately since 9006 is a headlight socket you won't find many lower output offerings with reputable dealers. Most LEDs on the market are overdriven to eek out more light for less cost and shorter lifetime so I would second the pwm dimmer. However, you could get a 9006 dummy harness to tie in with the stock one to avoid modifying anything on the factory harness.

          No.

          Just as Corey mentioned. Most LED headlight bulbs that use high power chips are powered at high level. In order to drop that intensity you must dim them via PWM.

              How about some kind of diffuser over the low-powered LED?
