Strips: Profile Prism (RGB)




PROFILE PERFORMANCE: The automotive aftermarket’s best name in LED Lighting and when it comes to Switchback LED Strips; easily the one that gets our nod of approval. Fact is that while the rest of the industry is busy sticking their name on a generic or standing still with the same-old same-old; Profile is working hand-in-hand with the industry’s experts to keep pumping out the products with the performance that we all expect. Their Pivot Sequential Switchbacks are perfection so satisfying that we’re left without anything else to ask for.

SWITCHBACK: Yep, you read that correctly. Profile is giving us our cake and letting us eat it too with their new sequential LED strips. Not only do they provide the excellent Type II switchback function that everybody has come to expect out of any LED accent lighting today, but when the amber mode kicks in – the Pivot delivers a badass sequential illuminating effect from side to side.

INTENSITY AND UNIFORMITY: Typical LED strips are spotty due to the spacing on the LED’s, but Profile’s clever external driver design allows the LEDs to be mounted with virtually zero gap between them. In addition, their unique blend of phosphorous silicone coats the front face of the Pivot Sequential strips and is responsible for their neutral “white when off” look and their amazing intensity which is unlike anything else on the market.

DON’T BE FOOLED: Typically SMD-based LED strips are a bit spotty due to the spacing on the LEDs..but Profile’s clever external driver design allows the LED’s to be mounted with virtually zero gap between them. When lit, they will create a singular, smooth, and seamless band of bright light!

RELIABILITY: The innovative Hybrid-LED color-changing technology delivers a virtually infinite lifespan of 50,000 hours. That’s almost six straight years! Because they’re based on much more stable and mature SMD-LEDs; they are considerably more reliable between hot/cold cycles compared to “new” COB based products. The complexity of their circuit boards has been minimized to reduce the chance of a failed contact, and the four solder points on the back are protected with resin.

PLUG N PLAY: Unlike competing RGB “systems” that require complicated wiring from the user’s side, all Prism LED setups are 100% Plug n Play. There is no wire stripping, cutting, or splicing involved within the kit. All wiring is insulated by rubber tubing then protected with TechFlex mesh for an OEM-like appearance, durability, and abrasion resistance. The LED drivers are housed inside an aluminum housing that’s been anodized with an attractive piano black finish and laser engraved with the Profile Prism graphics. Make sure your setup looks good inside and out!

REMOTE CONTROL: First-time users will need to purchase an optional RGB Controller. The Morimoto XBT is recommended for the best performance and color accuracy, has a killer Iphone/Android Bluetooth app, and three channels, which can be controlled independently. The Profile PrismPilot is a more basic RF-based setup that has four channels, but no smartphone app or independent output control.
