first, my heatsink will be 4.25" x 9" should beable to make the fit under the hood.
second, id like to use the dim4 for dimming (duh )
third, leds. i want to use about a 2:1 of blue's to white. some green and some deep red
forth, my drivers id like to have 2 25w 850ma dimmable's and 1 25w 1250ma dimmable. from thomas research.
i thought about wiring up 4 cree xp-e blues, 1 osram red and 1 cree xp-e green to one 850ma
4 cree xt-e royal blues 1 osram red and 1 cree xp-e green to the other 850ma
and 4 cree xp-g cool whites to the 1250ma
talked to evilc66. he said run the blues on one 850 ma, royals on the other, and whites on the 1250. tie the blues together, and run reds on one channel and greens on the other.
i like that idea but dont want 3 greens and 3 reds. but i might have too.
he also said i can get 700ma drivers instead and not have any problems. so im wondering if i should tie the greens and reds to blues. or run them seperately. if i run them seperately i might get some 3-ups. just like " its a me, mario!"... ha but only cause i was planning on having 16 or so leds on my heatsink.
also what about optics. if i use the 3ups i can only get 40 deg. the others except for red i can go 40,60 or 80 degree?
so maybe someones .02 cents?
