Xmitter Prime Xtreme Double Stack

 

The double stack version of the Prime Xtreme is a quad-row light bar in five lengths. The longest light bar outputs 38,000 raw lumens. It is the best and brightest model for short spaces.

Vision X LED Light Bar Features

Vision X does not compromise on build, circuitry or optics. They have unique characteristics that make them an LED light bar industry leader:

  • Highest lumens per square inch from top-binned LEDs
  • Reliability that qualifies their use by NASA
  • Optimized 3-D beam spreads
  • IRIS reflector technology for tightly focused beams that reach up to 3,280 feet
  • Pulse width modulation LED drivers that electronically reduce heat, current consumption and permit fine-tuned dimming
  • IP68 Deutsch waterproof wiring connectors
  • Polycarbonate front covers plus colored outer covers
  • Durable blackout covers to protect the light when not in use

Vision X Light Bar Details

Beam Me Up!

Vision X LED lights and light bars offer 5 beam patterns from a 90 degree flood beam to a darkness-splitting 10 degree spot beam, which they achieve by customizing the LED optics. 3-D optics control both the beam spread and cross-section. This aerial view demonstrates each pattern’s 2-D coverage:

Vision X also customizes the cross-section pattern of their light bars:

VisionXBeamPatternXSection

60°/90° Flood Beam

These two Vision X flood beam options provide wide area illumination for work or camp sites.

30°/65° Elliptical Beam

The elliptical beam has a wide core spread with a shorter height. It is excellent for driving when there is oncoming traffic.

40° Wide Beam

The 40° beam presents a circular beam pattern for multi-purpose illumination. Its forward penetration is intermediate to the flood beams and spot beams.

10°/20° Spot Beam

Their 10 and 20 degrees beams are made to penetrate the furthest reaches of the gloom ahead.

What Buyers Are Saying

Read any Vision X LED Light Bar Review and you never find complaints for lack of brightness and rarely for having a beam that feathers too much at the edges. Since Vision X only takes the cream of the crop from any LED maker, this is not surprising.

Their reflector technology is top drawer also, so those prime-choice LEDs get all their light out front where you need it.

One characteristic of Vision X light bars that does not jump out of the specs is their light weight relative to competing products of equivalent light output. This is a big advantage for roof mount applications, which has not gone unnoticed by some buyers.

The only gripe that comes up now and then is that Vision X does not make a combo beam.

Conclusion

There may be equals, but no other automotive LED light bar manufacturer exceeds the power and quality of a Vision X LED light bar. Their PWM technology shows off just how innovative they are when it comes to engineering the best LED light bars in the industry. These are not inexpensive products, but they are top quality.
