Has always been our go-to-guys when it came to HID, and when they released their line of LED products, we had our doubts. Performance left a little to be desired compared to some of the more refined models on the market. BUT (and thats a big BUT) that has since changed with the much more mature, refined second generations of each model they offer. While in all-honesty Morimoto didn’t exactly nail it the first time around on the LED bulbs, what we have from them today is about as modern as it gets and much more in-line with the quality and performance we’ve all come to expect from the brand.
Basically everything except the name, really. Now using their “Hybrid LED” system that was made famous by the XSB 2.0 halos and strips, the new XB Festoon’s are A) super reliable (we’ve yet to see one fail), B) have an excellent 5500K white color, and C) much better consistency due to the LED chips. They also got rid of the cool-looking, but awkward to install “X” shaped contacts and replaced them with a new rose-gold cone-type contact…much better. We dig it!
The bulb is constructed with a fiberglass PCB and rose gold-colored dimpled end caps. Unique? Very!
Heat management is crucial for reliability when it comes to LEDs. The LED panel and resistors are mounted opposite the extruded aluminum heat-sink, which is styled according to the profile of the rising sun in the Morimoto logo. It really doesn’t get much cooler than this! (pun intended)
The XB LED bulbs are can-bus friendly and should not cause any “lamp out” errors in MOST applications. We’ve sold em to guys with everything from Honda’s and Toyota’s to Euro’s like VW and Mercedes without any complaints – so we feel confident in recommending them for most every application.
