    My LINZ6 are not the same color amber as the LIN8 & LIN12 ambers I have in my lightbar or the 500 series whelen i have under bumper.

    Does anyone know if this is normal or if I just revieved a bad pair?

    can't answer your specific question, but my linz6's are amber and my vertex's also called amber aren't the same color. There are plenty of videos online to see what color the linz6 is. What is described as amber seems to have different shades of color

    Whelen changed their amber LEDs from Cree to a different manufacturer which was brighter but less amber. You probably have lights that were manufactured in different years.
