The old boat had 6 of the 27w cool white LED's. I figured I may as well upgrade to 50w lights with the new boat. The housings are larger than I expected but shouldn't be a problem. Paid $200 for all 5 but when they came today some had cracks in the housings. I opened a dispute with the website and they asked if I wanted to send them back for a full refund and keep them with a partial refund of $150. So I got these for $50 and some JB Weld. Hooked one of them up to see how it looks. Not the best picture in the world but you get the idea.

Looks good! As an FYI, to avoid some major headache in the future go ahead and put some anti seize on all the screws that hold the lens on and the driver housing on the back. The screws are stainless and the housing is aluminum. Down the road, when you need to replace a lens or driver you'll be glad you did.

Definitely not downing you or your setup but, I don't really care for them. Are yours 120 volts or 12 volt? There's no doubt that they are some of the brightest lights available but seemed to bright to me. I have no experience with the 27 watt, just the 50 watt.

They are 12 volt. Did you use warm white or the cool white?

Warm white is the way to go. Less glare and better light penetration then cool white.
