Halo Projector Headlights
Who's got Halo Projector Headlights? Anyone know much about them and who the parent company for them is? Also, if you have them, how do you like them and how are they working out for you?

I almost bought some ... but then learned that they are -all- HALOGEN projectors. (This means they do nothing good for [and can actually worsen glare caused by] HIDS, as HID projectors are radically different beasts from halogen projectors.) However, like you I am interested in how those who have them use and like them. Thanks for asking!

- Piermont,NY, back in Northern NJ now, But may be in IL soon....
There are many Co's that make them some good some bad.. As for The cool factor the Halo's do look great and the Anzo's have the brightest
ones on the market. They use CCFL bulbs while other Co's use 1 little bulb and hope the light gets all the way around. As for the Projectors
They say NOT to put HID's in them because of melting I have seen it done but I think people use lower watt ballest...They also can put out a thiner beam But they could have that cutoff that some lights have so you do NOT blind on coming people...
Hope this helps...

I purchased mine from Spyder in California. I think they also provide RECON their projectors. I am running 35watt 8000K HIDs in them. Like mentioned already, 55watt ballast will melt your projectors. So far mine have been great.<br>
They are also CCFL halos.

I did purchase my projectors from RECON. They initially came with halogen bulbs (not too savy about how they'll handle HID's, not too worried about it either as I don't plan on installing the kit), but I changed them out for som xenon bulbs (4,600K). As mentioned above, the RECON projectors only have one LED to light the Halo ring, but in all honesty they look fine on my truck (still been fightin with the weather out here otherwise I'd have some nice night shots). I will say that you're best bet is to go either Anzo or Recon, as they seem to have the most satisfied customers. If you're interested, I do have photo's of the installation and some blog entries about the adventure! Hope that helps, and good luck with your selection!
