    I have an old school mx 7000. The top has amber filter covers and the metal speaker screen. I was wondering if thier is a lense for the "wig wag" intersection lights. Is this what I should be looking for? If they do fit they looks like they will also filter my alley lights?

    So far those are the only ones I can find. Please let me know if they will fit and if you have seen them around anywhere else. Thanks.

    I couldn't find anything on the bigger supplier websites. I provided a link to ebay. Are those lenses what I should be looking for? Are the lenses different for the new generation led?

    Yes those are the correct lenses for the sweeps in the corners on the MX bars.

    I always wanted to get one of those and turn it around, and use amber intersectors for rear warning, especially when I wanted the 360s off. 45 degrees to the corners looks cool.

    It is a really cool light. Im pretty sure white intersection lights would get me into some trouble around here. I flipped it and I am using the takedowns lights for backup lights. I have four reverse backup lights on that thing now. The intersection lights almost cross in the front so they cover you in the front too. I will get a video up soon. I bought the light for $175 on craiglist and had it wired and rearanged for another $150. Parts cost me another $50 to get it the way I wanted. Got to love craigslist. The amp pull is a killer so I was hoping to get those intersection sweepers working to cut down a bit of juice.

    I hear you, thats the big downfall to rotator bars, having so much draw. A long time ago I had a Jetsonic with 4 rotators. It was originally a chain driven cluster, I gutted it and put in 4 standard rotators and a high speed rotator in the center. It worked out good for me cause I was doing fire at the time, so I could use amber and red filters and go from one color to another. Then in summer I could go all red. I actually did the same thing with an 8 head edge back then. No more fire for me, so I don't need the red anymore.
    I just got my new (to me) strobe bar up and running today. It's going to be ridiculous overkill. 12 linear comet flash strobes, and 2 flashers in case you didn't notice the 12 strobes. Now my customers will take one look out the window and go into epileptic siezures.
    I used to use a two light minibar with high speed rotators that was perfect for plowing. But it only has a cigarette lighter plug on it, man that thing would get hot after a few minutes. So what was the outcome, did you say you found filters for the interectors or no? Wonder if someone makes amber bulbs that would work.

    I saw some filters on ebay but Im not positive they will fit for the old bar. The lenses look like would also cover my alley lights. I dont need the alley lights but they are hooked up so I would like to keep them white. !2 strobes may be ok. You may need to get some lightly tinted sunglasses for plowing at night.
