I didnt do a side by side test- What I did do was hook them up to my 12 volt converter and that night and just two of em[not the four I will install] rivaled my mecedes' headlights...which light seemed fantastically powerful to me. I guess I am thinking that my choice so far exceeds the plans design that it is a completly moot point.[at least to me]. Sometimes in the quest for figuring all the tweeks a guy can do to the working plans design- everybody gets all worked up about 'possible improvments'[me included]...espeshally the guys who arent building and just farting around with hypothetical ideas that get everybody new to building confused.[its the nature of a plans buit plane. If you want to look for something amazingly brighter then it probably is out there! Have fun!
