BULB DESIGN

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

HP36: Full 360 degree illumination with 36 High-Power Samsung LEDs. Aluminum base for optimum heatsinking, and non-polar design for easy installation.

XP50: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains two 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with two more under a projector lens. Housed in an aluminum casing with textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.

Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 921 terminal, with a sturdy base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 921 bulb. You will not need resistors for backup lights. Just replace the factory bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


COLOR

These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, cool, bright, white hue for maximum light output.


BRIGHTNESS

Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb: 

HP5: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
HP36: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
XP50: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

Lumens. BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.

 

QUALITY

LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

    Extremely happy to win the XP50 bulbs from the Gift of Light giveaway on Instagram! Loved how bright and clean the white color was. Paired with their license plate light, these two are a perfect combo for the rear.

    I recently purchased the XP50 bulbs in cool white 6000K and the choice was perfect. The brightness of these bulbs is incredible, the install process was very simple and I strongly encourage anyone who is having a hard time seeing when backing up to buy this and pair it up with the tail as turn module with tall reverse lights for maximum visibility. This is the best mod so far, pricey but well worth it! (Posted on 4/18/15)

  10. Beautiful, clean backup LED's Review by Steve
    Price

    Quality

    I purchased the HP36 backup LED's and I am very happy with the results. It was super simple to install (bend the material out of the way, pop the bulbs, replace them, put it back) and looks great.

    NOTE: Pull the old bulbs out of their sockets first, THEN put the car in reverse. With car in gear, swap the bulbs so you only do it once.Those little lights get HOT and I think it is possible they get put in backwards.

    The bulbs are very high quality and look great. They have a cool pattern that reflects well in the reflector, and the white is very clean, in the 6000K range if you're trying for a common white all around.

    Very affordable upgrade and the stage II was the perfect brightness. (Posted on 3/2/15)

    we all know scion/subaru had no idea what they were doing when they placed the reverse light on these cars. with the XP50 lights you notice a huge difference. you can actually see where you are going. price may be a bit high but for the DD quality and customer service it is 100% worth it. i have replaced 90% of my lights with DD products and love it all (Posted on 2/25/15)

  15. Great Lights...need to update Install instructions, though. Review by Monkey_Boy

    Quality

    The lights look great! Added them to the "Tail as Turn" and back-up light option there, and now I have 4 bright lights for reverse and no issues backing out of my long narrow driveway.

    The instructions suggest that you get to these from the trunk--you actually get to them by crawling under the back and reaching up inside the bumper. It's not too tough, but I was confused for a moment. Other reviews have mentioned crawling under; I should have read them all first! Great product, DD!

  18. Very Nice Bright White Reverse Lights Review by Vic
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I bought these because their lighting output was omni-directional. Since the FR-S uses a reflector in the reverse light housing I knew the HP36 bulbs were the best for my liking. The price is a bit pricey but you can't go wrong with DD quality and Customer Service. Great set of bulbs that will light up much better than OEM bulbs. (Posted on 10/9/14)

  19. A must own Review by Dallas
    Price

    Quality

    I just bought the HP6. Shipping was lightning fast and installation was easy. Before installing the HP6, i had some general 194 smd cheap wedge bulbs. These new HP6 bulbs are probably 2.5-3 times as bright and a much cleaner whiter light. Being that this car has reverse lights down low, it is imperative to have a clear and bright reverse light. This bulb not only looks cool and clean, it has some very improved safety capabilities to it as well. For $30 bucks with a warranty, these should be one of your first replacements for bulbs on your FRS. (Posted on 9/3/14)

    Just got these in the mail, and I couldn't wait to install them. I was never a fan of the OEM bulbs with their yellow hue, I wanted something modern.

    I read reviews on a forum and decided to order some SMD1 (white) bulbs for my car. They are slightly dimmer than stock, which I was fully aware of. That being said they are still plenty bright! Installation was a breeze, just pull the old bulb out and put the new one in!

    Here is a quick comparison:[URL=http://s616.photobucket.com/user/thissen_151/media/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20140805_141003.jpg.html][IMG]http://i616.photobucket.com/albums/tt242/thissen_151/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20140805_141003.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

    Another big reason why I came to Diode was for these top notch high quality reverse lights they offer for the FRS!

    These are super bright, and look amazing. (Posted on 1/9/13)

Backup LEDs are a direct replacement. Just change the bulb! You will not need any resistors or other accessories.

Remove your factory bulb

  1. 1. Access the bulb or tail light. You may need to pull back the trunk/cargo carpet and/or unscrew the visible nuts holding the light in.
  2. 2. Remove the backup bulb socket by twisting counterclockwise.
  3. 3. Remove the factory bulb from the socket.

 

Install your new LED bulb

  1. 1. Plug new LED bulb into socket by pushing it in fully.
  2. 2. Test the function of the bulb. If it does not work, remove it, rotate, and reinstall in the socket.
  3. 3. Insert socket back into place, and reassemble as necessary. That's it!
