I'm probably gonna be ordering a set soon, but I find myself debating between kits. I'm looking at the 55Watt DIGITAL brand kits. The main issue I'm debating over is OEM color vs. light output. I've seen the 6000K VVME kit on a Gainesville member's 2006 NBP; the color was nice. In person, his kit looks very different from pictures that I've seen posted on here. His has a hint of purple, with *slight* blue hue. I've not seen a 5000K kit in person yet. Does the 5000K have a similar color to the 6000K, or is it pretty much pure white? I know the 4300K has a yellow hue to it... not wanting that. Also, since I'm looking at a 55Watt set, would that make up the difference of the amount of light output lost between 35Watt 5000K and a 35Watt 6000K?
Cliff's: I'm trying to figure out if a 6000K 55Watt DIGITAL will provide sufficient lighting, and what kind of color a 5000K kit really has... should I decide the 6000K has insufficient output.
I'm also assuming the VVME kit has lower/inconsistent light output and probably skewed actual color temp than the DIGITAL brand, simply because the manufacturing is not as precise. If any of this is unclear or confusing... let me know, and I'll try to clarify. I'm writing this from a mobile phone while driving with my friend from FL to MT, and we haven't had a ton of sleep, so... I might not be thinking clearly
Well, the 55w 6000k will give you plenty of light, no doubt about that. With a 55w 6000k output you will be the same or brighter than a 35w 5000k setup so the difference is more than made up there.
The 5000k are the most pure white color, 6000k will have a slight blue hue to them but no way near a lot. I think if anything other than white, the 5000k lean towards having a slight blue tone.
