Ordered 10 50watt leds warm white. Going on a 15 ft boat. Question is run 8 and keep 2 for spares or try to pack all 10. I know the more light the better but can you over do it even with 50 watt ?
Jon Killman Sr.: I would just pack em in. I had the same lights on my old boat. They worked. My new rig is getting 10, 80 watt Southern Light LEDs 8 on the deck 2 in the back.
Allen Fleming: Why not 8 on front and 2 in back?
Jonathan Redding: 8 on front and 2 on back
Cory Bradford: 2 on back Incase they get by or for a rear shooter ?
Allen Fleming: Ive sat in the river shooting rollers and you couldnt see nothin but what was beside you or in front
Jed Hayes: I put yellow tint on mine and I have those exact same lights and it made a world of difference in penetration and glare reduction
Alex Kreul: Even with them being warm leds? Have the same setup
Jed Hayes: Yeah I did one side of the boat yellow and one side without tint and the tint side did much better
Cory Bradford: Iâ€™ve read the yellow tint dems them down some. Any truth to it ?
Jed Hayes: Little to no glare and better penetration. Iâ€™ve got some 150 hps and they give the best but as for LEDs the tint helps out a lot
Alex Kreul: Ok, you think cool white with more lumens would be better with tint?
Jed Hayes: I couldnâ€™t say. Iâ€™ve only ever run warm. But as far as diming them it does a little but it seems that way because it takes the glare off the water. Kinda like the difference in looking at water with regular sunglasses or polarized glasses
Cory Bradford: Gotcha. Hopefully will be installing next week and testing next weekend. Might keep a eye out for tint if Iâ€™m not satisfied. Iâ€™ve only shot over my buddies 150w hps so thatâ€™s all I know to compare to
Jed Hayes: Well they arenâ€™t gonna come close to those hps. My hps our perform my seelite leds and those eBay leds
Cory Bradford: Boat Iâ€™m setting up if it helps. Probably not going to build a deck just yet considering I use it to crappie fish with also.
Kyle West: Order more
Cory Bradford: Hardly anything in them so thatâ€™s a option. Got them for $120
Kyle West: Id order 10 more if thats the price of em.
Dylan Shook: You ainâ€™t gonna over do it with leds unless they get in the way of you shooting lol, the more the merrier
Kyle Manning: Ive got 18 50 watt n not enough.
Fisher King: Less than 5 amps for all 10. .41 amps a piece. Give or take a little for the drivers. You could run 20 and not overload a 2200 genny. I have 12 100 watt leds on one of my boats.
Cory Bradford: Have a 2000 predator Iâ€™ll be running. But considering running a inverter also for the trolling motor. So didnâ€™t wanna go to over board on watt/Amps from lights
Fisher King: Cory Bradford I run a predator 3500 with 2 powermaxâ€™s and the 100w LEDâ€™s I was discussing.
Cory Bradford: Powermax pulls roughly 900 watts if I remember correctly for 45lb trust. Lights 500 which would put me at 1100. Running watts for Genny is 1600. Amps is 13.3 max if I remember right on the 2000 predator. I may could run a couple more lights just trying to keep life to my genny as much as possible.
Robert Gresham: I dont like that much light! Cant cast any shadows, which are easier to see than the fish
Duane McNeil: Ive got 10 on mine Im planning on 2 more on the front of boat.
Duane McNeil: Go to tractor supply and buy some flat metal stock and make some new brackets I just used vice and a hammer the brackets it comes with bend and rattle loose easy.
Chandler Williams: Iâ€™m running 8 100w custom fitz warm white on a 15 foot. Put 8 up front and 2 in the middle or back of the boat.
William Russell Meadows: Can you send me the link to where you ordered those lights?
Chandler Williams: Me too please.
John Warren: Got a link where you got them from
Jon Killman Sr.: I got my old ones which look identical to his off Amazon. In a 10 pack.
Cory Bradford: Walmart online. $120 shipped to the house
William Russell Meadows: Jon Killman Sr. how do you like them?
Jon Killman Sr.: William Russell Meadows They werent bad, my son in-law is using them now. The mounting brackets were extremely cheap, and the pig tail for the lights were way shorter than was described. That being said I am putting 80 watt Southern Light LEDs on my new boat this year. Their 80s are brighter than anyones 100 watters.
Joel Denison: i have 14 50 watt lights on my boat, used 2 for the back. works out pretty good
John Warren: ..
Cory Bradford: For the ones asking I ordered from Walmart. $120, free shipping
Mike Head: I have 19. No problems pull the 2000w and they are instantly working.
Joey Eyler: Iâ€™m running 10 on a 14â€™ 4 on each side and 2 in the front
Daniel Forest: Never can over do it
Stephen Moye: I have 8 and 2 400 GPS on a 16 ft. And it works good
Stephen Moye: Hps
Brian Nielson: What brand are they?
Stephen Moye: Yes.com from jet.com they are good lights
YESÂ® â€“ the ecosystem for digital identity.
Brian Nielson: 10 -100w 139$
Brian Nielson: Some good stuff for wiring up lights, thought I would share what I found
Kyle Manning: Are those 12 / 24 volt DC or 120 volt AC?
Brian Nielson: 120
Brandon Steffen: I run 14 of them on a 16ft boat. No complaints, I do run removable tinted yellow lenses for dirty water but I like the set up.
Johnathan Hallisey: Mount a couple on the back if thereâ€™s somewhere for a guy to shoot back there
