LED Lightbar DIY Answered
I hope this topic is in the right place. I was going to try my hand at building my own LED light bar like the one in the picture below. It will be around 40" long with 2 rows LEDs and running off a 12v car battery. What W LEDs would you recommend? Also materials, what would you use for the housing, clear front etc?
I was looking at 10w SMD Chips but I'm not sure if they are super bright but then again there are going to be a lot of them in the bar.
They have a operating Voltage of 9-12v, if I have so many of them will i need some sort of amplifier half way down the rows?
Any help with this project would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance.
