    They seem to be a no-name (probably no warranty) brand, with a low brightness power supply. You're better off going with something better like Whelen of Fed Sig, not to mention, you can get an entire Whelen 90Watt kit with 6 bulbs for less than that price.

    Well, if it is a 45W power supply and its splitting that wattage between 4 bulbs thats only 11W or so per bulb, so it won't be very bright. I also think looking at the wires used to hook up the tubes that the quality of the kit is low. Also from what I understand you get one flash pattern, quad flash.

    Thats my .02 cents.

    Go for the Whelen 90. That is a nice setup.

    I agree 100% with blueline. i bought a 90 watt whelen kit 4 years ago from vls and its still going strong and bright. also, vlsusa.com has always been the cheepest on the 90 watt whelen kit and they are great to work with.
