    Go with a whelen 90 watt system. It is plenty bright during the day and plenty bright at night. Just try not to put the bulbs in any clear lens in the front of the vehical and if you do try not to run them at night when it is snowing like crazy because they will flash back like crazy!

    yes, i would say go with the whelen 90 watt! Iv had really good luck with them. Yes if you put them in the clear lens they will flash back like crasy when its snowing, but I still put them in the clear ones, then people can see you from miles away! lol I have them in clear lenses in the pickups and amber on the loaders. Plenty bright either way!

    When ever I have put HAWs in a plow truck i always put the fronts and backs on their own switch so you can turn the fronts off if you want. Then you don't have to worry about flash back on bad nights.

    the Highest wattage that i can think of off hand is Whelen ISP188 180 Watt
    Nova makes a 185 Watt under their ultrapack series

    if you are just useing HAWS hide aways you wouldn't need more then a 90 watt

    Is is worth putting them in the corners in the front or do you still get the feedback?

    I would put them in the front too, and at night if the flashback is too bad, shut off just the fronts.

    They're ok at night, but they're not good enough for bright sunlight yet.
