LED or HID auxillary lights?

I am trying to figure out which light would best compliment my existing JW Speaker 8700 headlights and JW speaker fogs in bumper. Which would look closer to the light output that I'm getting from the Speaker lights? What I don't want is the bright white beams of the headlights and an auxillary light that is more on the yellow side.

Thoughts?

More than likely the KC Pro series either way

my rigid industires LED dually D2s match my jw speakers pretty well, my 6000K HID fogs do not, 5000k HIDs would match better. If you get HID make sure the color is 4500-5000K that is what should match the Jws the closest.

3000K HIDs are on the yellow side 6000K HIDs are on the blue side

looking breifly at the pro-sport KC LED vs HID they both say 5000K so they should be the same color and should match the JW speakers which also list that they are 5000K. but in order to be safe you should go with the LEDs. You could always try the HIDs and if they dont match send them back and buy the LEDs.

Are there anti-flicker concerns to address when running led lights through an spod?

don't think so. Just when you run LEDs on factory harnesses.

The Spod runs direct from the battery, off the PWM Circuit, so there are no worries about flicker with LED's and a Spod.
