  • POV: Strobes or Haligon Warning Lights

    Just wondering what type of warning lights, if any, that you are using on your POV. Also what colors are allowed to be used in your area? We are allowed to use red and clear to the front only with red and amber to the rear! I am looking to install lights on my POV but just wanted to know what ya'll have found to be a good investment. Thanks ahead of time for the help!!!!

      I have a single Dashlaser, solid blue, fast speed on my dash. When I get a larger vehicle, I'm going back to my firebeam.

      Wigwags as soon as HB 0106 passes the Illinois Senate.

          On my Ford Ranger pickup truck, I have 2 of the blue Par 36 extended lens strobes on the front bumper and a blue double dashmiser above the rear view mirror. Due to some budget cut-backs, I don't have anything in the back yet. The extended lens strobes are very effective because you can see them from the sides too, great for intersections.

          On the subject of LEDs, red and amber are about the same price as strobes. Blue is significantly more, and green is ALOT more. I would recomend getting a Whelen LED Slimlighter. I work at Whelen and have seen this on several vehicles- It Kicks ***!

          The Federal Firebeam or Code 3 Dashlaser with the multi-flash mirrors are great halogen units if you want something economic.

          Of course, for about $4,500 you can get a full Whelen SMARTlink system with a lightbar, siren, remote strobes, wig-wags, and B-Link control center. But, that may be a bit excessive for a personal vehicle.

              I have both in my POV, halogen sealed beams in grill, and Whelen double Dashmiser under rear view mirror. Both are red/clear. In Va we can only have red/clear. I assume that you could have amber facing rear, no law for or against it that I know of. I don't have anything to the rear because technically I can't run both the grill lights and strobe at the same time, and I think having lights in the rear would cause me problems, because in Va law, you can only have 2 lights on a POV. The pair of grill lights count as 2!

                  I just bought the new whelen tir6 slimlighter m version in blue. I will never go back to anything again. THis thing covers the side of the vehicle and is absolutley blinding when viewed straighton at the side it is still extremely visible. The flashpatterns are absolutley amazing. You should all check out this led dash light.

                    Talk about a flashback from the past. He he. get it FLASHback. HAHAHAH.

                    I thought there were enough flashing light threads in this current year but I guess not.
                    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

                        Best siren...

                        Seriously, the best electronic siren out there is the
                        Unitrol Touchmaster. Enclosed is a picture. If you
                        watched COPS last week, the North Las Vegas PD was
                        busting intersections with one. Here is their site-
                        www.unitrol.com. They might be a little pricey, but
                        then they will last you the next 20 years+. Here is a
                        pic...

                          Another Unitrol model...

                          Here is another model from Unitrol. (a little older)
                          These units really sound aggressive and will clear
                          traffic for you. This one and others are at
                          www.ebay.com, search word- "unitrol".
