FUNCTION

Your dome light, or single light located in the center of the ceiling, uses an incandescent bulb from the factory, giving it a yellowish color. By replacing with an LED, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your vehicle, with a cool white color, just like the lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMF6 or SMD12 Board, to improve the performance of your dome light.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!

 

BULB DESIGN

SMF2: This bulb has a standard festoon base, with two 5050-size Epistar SMDs and a protective cover for added durability and style. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF6: Standard festoon base, with six 5050-size Epistar SMD chips arranged on a rectangular panel. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMD12 Board: This is an LED panel, fitted with 12 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with spring-loaded festoon-style adapter for direct installation. Plug the adapter into the bulb socket, then just stick the board in place with the mounting adhesive pad. The board-and-adapter design allows for extremely high brightness compared to a simple bulb.

Included in your order is ONE BULB.


COLOR

These LEDs are available in many crisp, bright colors. White and warm white are the most popular colors, for a modern look with maximum visible light.

You can also select blue, red, green, or amber to add a unique look to your interior. Please note- when ordering these unique colors, we recommend moving to the next-brighter stage for acceptable 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: 

SMF2: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF6: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
SMD12 Board: 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, Cree, 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.

  5. Great! Review by 2015 WRX

    Quality

    I bought the green lights (SMF6) in order to get a cool "cyberpunk" look inside my car at night. The red instrument lights of the 2015 Subaru WRX contrasting with the eerie green glow of these Diode Dynamics sets an awesome tone for the ride! They are not obscenely bright, but cast more than enough to make things visible even in the green glow, and look just as cool from outside the car.

    I'd tried a different brand before this, and they were sub par. The Diode Dynamics product is easily superior, and for a better price.

    **Just remember, if you plug your light in and it doesn't work, turn it around. They are LED's (light emitting diodes), which means they're basically check valves for electricity. It will only allow electricity to go one way, so if they don't light up, turn them around. (Posted on 10/13/16)

  6. Amazing quality! Review by George S.

    I had a white LED bulb for my dome light in my 2017 Subaru WRX STI and I wanted a red LED bulb to match my car's dark grey, black & red theme. This bulb was brighter than the red I was expecting and I couldn't be happier. A friend of mine recommended Diode Dynamics and the quality of the bulbs has exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting to increase visibility and improve the looks of their vehicles. Not to mention, most other companies have 1-2 year warranties for their products and Diode Dynamics has a 3 year warranty which was one of my main selling points. (Posted on 9/17/16)

    I ordered the SMF6 bulb in red to go with the color scheme of my car and it looks great. Install took about 2 minutes and it is significantly brighter than the stock bulb. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade the interior light output and quality. (Posted on 6/20/16)

  9. Go for SMF6 instead off SMD12 Review by PCHone

    Quality

    I ordered both the SMF6 bulb instead off SMD12 in 6000K. The SMD12 is overkill and you could see the board under the plastic cover. The SMF6 bulb is much brighter than stock, dispersed the light all over the rear cabin (overflowing to front seats as well) and plugs in nicely like OEM bulb. I returned the SMD12 and happily kep the SMF6.

    DD 3 year warranty is icing on cake as well. (Posted on 3/23/16)

  10. Excellent, Bright LED Dome Light Review by Jeff
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    I got the SMD12, 6000K (daylight) balanced. The dome light cover is on pretty tight, so don't use a screwdriver to pry it off as you might crack it or cause damage, use your fingers or a plastic putty knife. Easiest approach is to sit in the back seat, grab the back of the dome light plastic cover and just ease it off- careful to not pry down the entire assembly, just the plastic cover.
    The SMD12 is significantly brighter than stock, and it looks great- very modern. (Posted on 4/7/15)
