    Hey guys. I'm wondering if anyone has a Liberty Dou lightbar, how they like it, and what they paid for it. I'm toying with the idea of getting one. I landscape, plow snow, etc., and am a volunteer firefighter/EMT/fire police and I'd like a lightbar that'll cover both for me. Thanks

    cool concept idea from whelen .. but really is it that practical .... to me 3 Grand for a bar .... with cut backs on fire dept personal here in michigan ... not worth it .... you buy a bar and can only use one color when you paid for 2 colors ..... law enforcement could use the amber in back for traffic advisor mode .. but again 3 grand .... lil pricey ... just my .002

    In your situation it is probably a good idea, unless you get two magnet mount mini bars and switch them when needed, and that will cost about 400, or get the Duo minibar from SNM

  5. That looks like a great light. Excellent bang for your buck.

    Thanks guys. How about the Whelen responder duo? I just saw that on the SNM website yesterday. Is anyone familiar with that? I'm just not sure about the SNM brand. How bright are they? I know Whelen has the brightest led lights i've ever seen, with feneix a close second. I volunteer in a very high traffic area with 3 major highways so brightness and visibility are key factors.

    SNM lights are very good, I have a buddy with their lights. Watch their videos, it really does show what you get.
