I knew if anybody had done it, it was you! Steve, if you get a chance, could you post the LEDs, color temps, and drivers you used? Did you find the color temp thing for red and green was important? Just warm vs. cool? I've got a brand new set of Aqua signals rarin' to go...


Here's to swimmin' with bowlegged women!

Glad you like your Bebi lights.

However, these folks are talking about a whole 'nuther animal. I've replaced all of our interior lighting with Luxeon and Cree high power LEDs. As noted above, Buck Pucks automagically sense the current draw, and provide an output to the LEDs.

We love ours - but they are overkill. Certainly don't have a problem seeing with them, and replacing fluorescent lights, they draw 50% less power, and light many times better.

If you buy the mounted stars (Cree LEDs - Led Driver - Led Fixtures - Led Optics - Luxeon LEDs - LED, you will have a whole lot easier time mounting your LEDs. Those suckers are tiny!
