That's ridiculous the way it just causes any remotely flammable object to ignite like that. Makes my 1.6W look positively puny. Beam visibility is something I'd want to see in person, as 1.6W of blue is already very visible.
Hmm. is that what this is, you think? I posted it in the ebay finds the other day, as i had no idea what i was looking at.....
seriously though, nichi@ doesn't want these in HHLs, grey of JL shared some info and a pic with me regarding that, but the cat is out of the bag. I guess when they come from nichi@, they are encased in a very difficult to remove housing to encourage projector use as opposed to HH I guess. they have to be painstakingly removed. some of the high prices are due to this too, nichi@ is picky with who they sell 'em to, even JL has had trouble. so the few that do get them realize this, and mark 'em up. I imagine, some of this is speculation, but it adds up to me. not sure why they would feel responsible for actions others take with their products. from a business standpoint, shouldn't they be trying to sell as many units as possible? Imagine if gun manufacturers took the same stance. or knives, anything remotely dangerous. most companies will choose profit over public safety every time, funny that in this instance, it's annoying to me, but I'm never a fan of protecting people from themselves
as far as bad publicity, when is the last time someone blamed beretta for a shooting, cold steel for a stabbing, or honda for a vehicular homicide? seems absurd to me.
Just wait until we have those new self driving cars, then who is to blame? The manufacturer? The owner? or the AI itself that drives the car?People are ALWAYS blaming guns for shootings. As for knives and cars, thats another story. But guns have it worse off than us.
I was told the same thing. I tried it anyway :crackup: One drive would always start getting OMG hot. When perfectly balanced it would work for a little while then one drive would start getting hot. I tried X-Drives and BlitzBucks. Same thing with both of them. Maybe I was doing something wrong. The only thing I could get to parallel successfully were boost drives.I was told not to run the X-Drive in parallel. Is it a different version of the x-drive I am thinking of? I am looking at putting one of these together so I am trying to decide on driver set up.
