INSPIRED: Packaged into a more retrofit-friendly design, the new XB’s feature countless elements derived from the most popular OEM benchmarks. As good as they are, even arrogant retrofitters may start second-guessing those bulky, power hungry, exposed-to-the-elements, OE ballasts.
PROTECTED: Their die-cast aluminum shell houses a 100% potted circuit board; eliminating any chance of moisture damage. The AMP SuperSeal three-pin connector from TE Connectivity between the igniter and the ballast ensures the safety of this crucial output.
COMPACT: Slim 17mm body will mount almost anywhere with their extremely functional and attractive eight-position mounting brackets.
VERSATILE: If you’re like many of us retrofitters, the setup is always changing and now your ballasts can keep up! Since the igniter cord can be unplugged from the ballast (without the use of unreliable adapters, that is) Likewise, if an igniter does happen to go bad, it can easily be replaced.
FAST, FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT: Power hungry ballasts never work well with tricky CanBus systems, but the new XB55 ballast consume < 5A on ignition without compromising their reasonably quick warm-up speed. That's much less than Denso, Mitsubishi, FastBright, and the old Morimoto too, which makes their ability to reach full intensity a more efficient process. QUIET: The Morimoto THF Elite Ballast has relocated igniters far closer to the HID bulb. The lack of high voltage transmitted through wiring drastically reduces EMI/RFI (radio interference). Total system reliability is also improved by shielding the main circuit board from the static produced by these high voltage bursts on startup.
RELIABLE AND SMART: The Morimoto THF ELite Ballasts are designed to last for 2500 hours and there’s not much that will stand in their way. The matured DSP 2.0 software recognizes outside system faults such as a loose high voltage connection, and after one misfire will cut power rather than potentially self-destruct.
