  • Mega Projector Post via TRS

    Finally was able to upload, label, and compile these. Please note the following:

    • This is only to be used for reference. There is no guarantee the performance of a specific projector will match what is shown.
    • The camera settings were all be the same. Some variances can be seen due to warm-up times of the ballasts/bulbs.
    • A Denso Slim ballast was used for all tests.
    • Projectors with clear lens upgrades were tuned to the best of their abilities with the parts and tools we had available to us here.
    • There is no guarantee with these pictures--it is again merely to be used as reference and for comparisons.
    • We will make updates / changes to this without notice when necessary.

          On some projectors the light looks white/blue with the stock lens & on the warmer side with the clear lens.. Is that camera settings coming into play or the actual output changing?

            Camera settings.

              In regards to this... why didnt you just have the camera up on a tripod with the same settings pointed at the same place and use a remote to take the shots?
              They would all be uniform and really show the true differences between the projectors.

                Its not the Camera settings, the Camera settings were 100% identical - but we did not let the bulbs warm up for the same amount of time before snapping different projectors, so admittedly some projectors had bulbs running for 10 seconds, others were running for 30 seconds, etc - which explains the difference in color. The same exact bulb was used, Morimoto XB35 5000K (new version)

                  Wow this will definitely help those who want output shots before buying them.... I still think the TL-r is #2 to the 3G TL. also its amazing how bad some of the other projectors aren't even putting out light well and they're in cadillacs and Audi's corvettes etc... lol hopefully yall can get the LS series in with the S2K's & more LED based projectors. awesome thread!!

                    Now all you need is Spencer (Greenkouki) to modify the ones possible and see what they look like lol. Also where are the LS430 and LS460? No E46 or E55's.

                      When you reshoot the pics, will you also consider doing high beam shots of the bixenon projectors? Pretty please?

                          I'd have to go with the TL 3G, followed by 4G followed by FX35 with TSX lens

                            Wow those pics do give an idea of how the projectors compare to each other somewhat!

                              Wow some of those you can obviously tell how bad. Alot of others don't look so bad. But something like this should definitely be posted on the TRS website. It's even nice to show what projectors are what
