    Ha, I was actually going to post here asking if anyone had a CHIT LOAD of lights, like 50. :D Do you prefer strobes over LIN surface mount lights?

    I know the Vertex units are not as bright as a 90W strobes, but how much less bright would you estimate? It seems as though LED's have surpassed halogen and strobe in light bars in general, but I still see a lot of strobes going into headlight/taillights.

    I was very impressed with the construction and light output of the Vertex. :cool:

    Is that going on a float for a Christmas parade? Imagine 50 red, green, and clear strobe heads firing (and epileptics falling over on every corner).

    did you guys know that there are several power supplies that will give you either a 6 or 8 head traffic advisor patterns?.....

    never seen a strobe traffic advisor.....look like a run way for a plane?...

    The strobe traffic advisors are pretty good. We have a few around here. The power supplies are also good for older GMC tailights because you can run 6 strobes, 2 red, 2 amber, and 2 white and have them all flash in sequence.

    I don't know what type of vehicle you are putting the 48 strobes in, but make sure the alternator will maintain the voltage at that load.
