Agreed Hoppy, it definately wont be cheaper or economical at all. Looking at close to $100 more to go XM-L's vs T5HO's w/ Geismanns. Then again my entire build thus far has been miles from economical
The build I'm contemplating is running 12 Cree's off of a DIM4. The ability to do sunrise/set and dimming would be the key reason to go with LED's. That and it would look slick. I guess I'm stuck as to whether thats worth the extra $100, don't care about the time and effort in the DIY, that's the fun part.
As long as it puts me in med light.
Anyone have any idea if either 12 XP-G's or XM-Ls on a DIM4 @ 500mA would be sufficient?
