Those look good but no info is available on the Lumens they provide. And, I already bought two of these:

let us know how these work out.

I searched lumitec site for lumens and found alot of reterick about apples and oranges comparisons. Funny the comparisons on the site did not include abyss, which krypts are very similar...

I plan on getting them from Santa in a few months. I think I'm getting the Red SB3 lumitecs.

Thought about the duel white/blue but want as much lumens on the color as possible. Not sure if only half luminate when turned on. Interior of my boat is all red LEDs soooo...

I think most of the underwater LEDs are a tossup until you get into big money for lights that go on Dive Boats.

Sure thing. What I like about the krypts is that you only have to drill a 3/16" hole instead of 1/2" and they are half the price of the Lumitecs. I just hope that they are going to be bright enough to illuminate my surf wake!

What color did you get? How do you know how bright they are going to be and which colors are the brightest?

2 of them in Green. (Riley's favorite colour)

I don't. But, the website claims 30' behind the boat (clear water) so I am hopefull that they will do the job.

I don't know.

I recall someone telling me that green travels the furthest through water but don't quote me on that.

I'll post pics of the install along with the led lights for the cup holders and the speakers once I get everything in. This job will more than likely be complete before I move on to my ballast project so stay tuned!

Science fun! Remember the color spectrum ROYGBIV? Water absorbs colors on the red side of the color spectrum and transmits colors on the blue side. Colors that are transmitted through objects contribute to the color that are eyes see. Oceans are blue because blue light is transmitted the farthest through it. Therefore Blue light is are winner.

Now, which color is brighter in water, Blue or Green, is another ball game.

:D

Found this little tidbit: "blue-green light (wavelength around 470 nm) transmits furthest in water"

We got the spectrum in our hot tub and my choice of Red is the worst. I'd say Blue seems a bit brighter than green.

Looking forward to pics

As does ours. It cycles through the base color spectrum and creates "blended" colors as it does. Then i remembered my swimming pool has fiberoptic lights on a color wheel as well. The cool thing is we can stop it anywhere. So I was playing with the lights in the pool last night noticing which colors were the predominate and brightest. Not suprising to me was that a teal color (blue/green) was actually brighter than base blue or green and projected further than either.

BUT what i didn't expect was that when it cycled between white/red to make a pinkish color, it was actually brighter than any base or blended color. Of course who on here wants pink underwater lights huh? :p
