  • Bi Xenon with Halogen projector high beam

    Hello

    I have a 2009 UK ford focus st with bi xenon headlights. There's also a H1 projector high beam.

    I am upgrading the factory bi xenon projectors but would also like to retrofit projectors Into the high beam halogen so I can black out all the chrome in the headlights. I would like to keep them halogen so I keep the flash function of the headlights. I have a few questions-

    1. Although the headlights already have auto leveling with a projector as stock would the second projector weight cause issues with the levelling?

    2. I can't find a dedicated high beam projector so am using a morimoto mini H1 type projector for the H1 halogen high beam, do I remove the cut off or just wire the solenoid to the bulb wiring so it opens simultaneously with the operation of the bulb?

    Thank you all in advance

    1. The weight should not be a problem.

    2. If you really only want it as highbeam I would remove it. Less moving parts to worry about. But test the output and maybe add a small shield so you don't get too much foreground lighting.

        Alternatively, you could get a good biLED, that way you can get that max intensity for flash-to-pass similar to halogen.

          Thanks for the replies,

          I would love to fit a led projector but they are a little too much for my budget at the moment.

          I've managed to fit the mini h1's in the reflectors, a fair bit of playing around was needed to stop the shroud touching the inside of the lens.

          I realized I can remove the solenoid cut off mechanism but leave the limiter part still in.

          Next jobs are remove chrome, prep the plastic and paint!

            If you just want a projector for high beam mostly just for flash-to-pass and possibly to augment the bi-xenon high beam, why not the LED high beam projector that TRS has for $$80-100/pair or something like it?
            Or one of similar ones on Amazon, ebay, aliexpress?

            I haven't tried these myself, but if you are just using them for flash-to-pass or along side the high beam of the bi-xenon, they should be fine.

              Oh man, if I had known about those things! I guess my other option In the future now is to go quad hid since I've fitted the projectors.

                If you already have two projectors in your headlight and you want to replace one of them I would just go ahead and replace both and do a quad setup.
