    The diffrence is the internal lights themselves. Ones uses the CON3 LED lightheads the other uses linear6 LEDs. Get the linear6 version much brighter.

    I looked around for a while too. I ended up getting the Whelen Responder Mini. The housing is much more solid than the sho-me or soundoff minis. It was a bit more expensive but not by much.

    On YouTube, some LEO compared the two units (CON3 VS LIN6)...

    He said that the LIN6 is slightly brighter and has a better 360 coverage, but for snowplow, he recommends the CON3 because it is cheaper ($70).
