    Who makes the absolute brightest flashers on the market (wedge tower)??

    #2 2 years ago

    If you have unlimited space, it can get pretty insane, to the point of pain.

    These are my favorite:

    Especially in Domes.

    Backbox is another story, or front facing from below, a Standard 8 flat, is among the brightest,
    but you can also add Strips, Pads, and COB Panels off a wedge flasher, if Space is not the issue.

    Depends also what you are lighting, as sometimes you want a glow, like in a Simpsons figure,
    and you want light spread differently.

    So application based, is also part of the question, and answer.

    I'd have to say beelzeboob is the brightest flasher I know. He has a collage degree yet he still can't help himself.

    I'm thinking about the cloud topper on TAF and the Visor on Jackbot.

    On the flip side, is there a way to tame a flat 8 smd flasher? I have one in one of my inserts and it is too intense, almost blinding. Was thinking about putting some duct tape over some of the smd's so it's not as bright.

    I use Art's formerly of Comet, 22 SMD ... Very very bright

    I havent personally done TAF or BOP, but if you have a wedge socket, and I believ lots of room, you can use Comets matrix in 12V and add a couple of COB panels in white, and an ICE BLUE, and PURPLE in 6 SMD, Firing those 3 at once, along with at least the 8 head directional, you can go above and beyond 1 bulb for a lightning effect extreme!

    Great time for this topic!!!....I'm looking for " melting bright" red 906 RED's, and 89 Blues under the disc in my TRONLE think I can stuff those 13 LED towers in there...should do the trick?

    That sounds sick!!!....the cloud topper above TAF is in need of a vicious blast when it hits "showtime" mode!!!...think I'll poke around up there and see how much room I have, but think plenty. Think your color choices will be spot on!!!

    I love these ones. Super bright but more importantly you direct the flash to where you want it. You can also squash them into the housing like in the standard 8 smd directional flasher.

    Good choice! Available here from all vendors, also in 2 headed Matrix, for double light, 2 different colors, or Power tap.

    I put a bit of electrical tape over individual lamps to tame my flashers.
