    I guess I am going to be the Guinea Pig on this one. These ditch lights are going to have to be improved. I love the performance, detail, and sound but it needs more light up front.

    The brightness of any LED is the amount of current you can provide it. This can be done two ways, either get a smaller LED or decrease the size of the resistor. I think a smaller LED will be easier. And by smaller I do not mean physically smaller, I mean that it has a lower turn on current than the existing LED's.

    When you were in there and had the unit apart did you see any room for a Keep Alive Capacitor?
