    Noticed strobes n more has both systems on sale. What is the brightness difference? I want fairly bright, but would like to save some cash aswell. Any input on the brightness, and the product would be great. Also how easy are these to install?

    Go 90 Watt, its worth the money, especially during the daylight, it makes a difference. The installs are easy so long as you have basic electrical knowledge.

    I agree I think you will be happier with the 90s. Also I know the whelens came with good detailed instructions.

    90S, the bulbs are a screw in style so the groment wont melt with any heat build up.

    You can use either the push in grommet type or screw in type.

    def go with the 90 watt systems.

    Also, I know a lot have had a good experirance with strobes n more but the 2 times i dealt with them it was horrible. The owner is a complete jerk and i would never give them my money ever again. They insulted me and my wife and mocked me over the phone. I can also show you some emails that came from them that would shock you.

    Anyways, lshlights.com is a great place to do business with. I went to them after my strobes n more deal and could not be happier.

    90's are the way to go. Just make sure that if your look'n at strobes go with the Helix tubes, The leneir tubes have a habit of over heating unless your going BIG on the lenses.
    Whelen has a great 1/4 turn system that you have a plug behind the fixture that you just unplug to remove.
