  • 30" xbar discussion - disappointed in TRS, with pics

    i purchased the 30" xbar with the understanding that it has better specs than rigid bars of the same size. after some side by side comparison with the 30 xbar morimoto combo vs a 30" sr2 driving/hyperspot combo, the outcome is interesting.
    this is the rigid bar

    i have a video uploading soon.

    i attempted to leave a review of thew bar on trs but my review has not been posted and i have not been contacted about other issues i have about the bar. if anyone wants to know about the many drawbacks of these bars, id be happy to explain. my review went over most of the details but thats long gone.

    Sorry to hear you're not so happy with the light output. I dont believe the product's descriptions state anywhere that it outperforms a Rigid brand bar, and also costs anywhere from 1/3 to 1/2 of what a comparably sized Rigid does new. If however you're not happy with it, we can always accept it back for a refund if its still like new!

      Why would the thread get locked?

      I feel like it's a fair and pretty well constructed comparison of the two. Interesting how much more concentrated the RI bar is.

      I dont think I'd like to have THAT much of a concentration in the center, I think the MM bar is better spread out. thats just my opinion (I've owned and used the hyperspots, it's almost *too* "spot")

            We've yet to see (at least I've yet to see) any official output shots of the TRS light bars.

            Usually these threads get locked.. which is why I posted that photo

                Soundman98 did a great review of the XBar, which demonstrated exactly what you found. That thread got locked if I recall correctly.

                  This is 100% correct

                  The light bar is pretty much all show and no go. It's a brodozer's image accessory, nothing more.

                    They've been known to silence negative reviews. Pretty s****y of TRS to do.

                    FB was raving about it days ago. Here's a screenshot of that thread:

                    TRS wasn't too happy that I called them out on that thread.

                        The only reason the thread should be locked is because nobody [except for me, as the only one that made a constructive follow up post) seems to even care about what the OP posted, only speculating about whether or not the thread would be locked.

                          I think this is a reason as to why we are speculating as to why threads like this become locked

                            And why should this thread suffer the fate of being locked when countless others on the forum get derailed without any sort of penalty. Freedom of speech right?

                            Plus, there hasn't been an official statement as to why his review was never approved on the site. Artificially inflating product reviews is a baaddd (the only speculation as of now without an official statement).

                              To the OP, Please email me directly and I'll be happy to make sure we get you taken care of with whatever resolution works best for you: TRSMatt@theretrofitsource.com

                              As I previously stated, if you're unhappy with performance, we'll take it back and issue a refund for the price you paid.

                              All product specs are given to us by the light bars manufacture: http://hereticstudio.com/ ....I've said it a handful of times before, especially here on HIDP, but I think for approximately 50% of the price of a comparable bar and given the considerably better look and feel of the bar, these are still a good value - but it all depends on what is is you're really after. If you want the most possible light output, I would have told you this may not be the best option on the market from the get go. These bars are made for buyers who are seeking something aesthetically different/exotic but still makes a decent amount of light.
