I'll have to remember this when I attend my first Vikings game. :gm
Minnesota boy ya know.
Maybe I'll be making a trek over to see a game or two myself. I loved the area last year at the MOA Nationals. The people were the most friendly I ever encountered.

It seems to me that I'd replace the speakers and fit high powered Erika's or Olivia's there, no? :-)
I wanna keep the covers intact and on mainly keep the dust, dirt and moisture out of the entire headlight housing. Drilling a big hole for the fan and then using "plumbers" putty around it was not my idea of a slick install.
..it's like a carbon arc Super Trooper spot light. Okay, you probably have no idea what I'm yapping about...
ABBA fans everywhere know exactly what you mean. ;
Ahhh.... "Diggit the dancing queen".
The Sound & Stage Lighting Co. that I own has done many of large or famous bands and acts. Abba just happened to be one of them, albeit it was just a one night gig at the Geneva (NY) Theater one hot summer night. One of the members was from Ithaca NY, and so Hobart College booked them along with us doing the Sound & Lighting (mostly Par64's back then, in 1K watt ea.) If I remember correctly, it was an 120 Par (can) contract. Not huge, but plenty good enough. Back-then, our milestones were Show-Co, then on tour w VanHalen boasting 800 1K Pars! Rush was right up there also, but again, we didn't have those guys under contract
"Spin Doctors" was one of later bands we toured with. My brother and I who owned the Co. (never could keep a relationship g/f or wife b/c of this) eventually hibernated it. I still have truck loads of equipment, including the high powered lasers. We don't wanna sell it, guess it's memories. I have pulled some of it for some smaller gigs now & then.
I did mention...Better halves hate this business? lol
The difficulty with nearly all LED H7 replacement bulbs is the fitting into the small space under the waterproof cover.
The high power LEDs have a ballast similar to HID lights.
Space is tight considering the fan. BUT!, I have found a few that fit. The 3600lm one I have in now is crazy mad bright [in the garage!], and doing the A/B (towel dowser) between the halogen and the 40w LED, it's not even close.
The real test is teh light coverage out in the streets. Yes that FJR video says it all, but my lamp is also twice the output of his, PLUS!... there is an issue with the "pod" that goes around dual beam LED's (or HID's). This tries to fool the light beam to the down part of the reflector. In doing so, a lot of efficiency is lost. I have tried 3 pairs of these Hi/Lo's in my snowmobiles, with slacking results so far.
Nothing however has been so bright as these H7's I've currently go in. So, I'm hoping they pass my road test.
