@craigstumph i would also like the price on both. The laser and without. Are they in stock or will it take a while to get? Thanks!
Baja is taking a few weeks to ship right now on onx6+ lights. I am not sure on the headlight kit. I would need to call and get an ETA. Sent you a quote.

Those numbers don't seem correct. Please double check and provide source. The headlight system is not designed to do the same job as a 10" light bar because of the style of the lenses but even split on each side of the car should far exceed the stock lights. Something is not right here??

I am a sucker for good lighting and have been saving my lunch money for either one of these. Anybody got some opinion or clarity even better!

I have access to a lumen meter, while out in the desert we shot them my buddy does led lighting for a few of the casinos in Vegas so he shot my lights after reading the posts.

I have the standard (not laser) on my 2020 car and stock lights on my 2017. There is a big difference/improvement, especially side by side.

Sounds legit really. How about doing similar with an Onyx 6+ see what is up withthe other system. Thx for the come back...

There very well may be a difference in 'legit improvement' & claimed lumen output actually matching measured lumen output.

My question is, How is the company measuring the lumens? Is it with an actual distanced meter reading or is it by mathematical calculation (as in the factory says 1 led = X lumes so therefore 6 of those leds = X6. Claimed & measured lumens may be different here.

It sounds like the claim above was based readings taken from a handheld lumen meter/photometer. These devices are used in photography and other applications to test a pinpoint measurement at a very specific point. Not at all a good representation of the output of the light, being that our reflector and lens are designed to spread the effective lumen range up to 42 degrees wide.

The testing procedures used within the industry are much more detailed and I wish they could be achieved with a $100 photometer :)

Most of them rely on peak beam measurements, which still are not a great representation of the output of our lights (our secret sauce is our ability to smoothly spread light across the entire field of view - rather than one pinpoint) but far more advanced than taking a measurement like what was stated above.

The OnX6 is indeed a better bang for the buck if you are just looking for light. The advantage and appeal of our headlight kits is the factory fitment and operation, as well as the adjustment available in the pattern. Power draw and efficiency come into play when drivers begin building competitive lighting packages and begin to run out of power. Our headlight kit draws similar power to the stock system, but provides more performance - translating to better lighting without additional strain on the electrical system. Important for competitive drivers, but likely not for the weekend warrior.

Hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
