Packaged into a more retrofit-friendly design, The new XB's feature countless elements derived from the most popular OEM benchmarks. It's time to start second-guessing those bulky, power hungry, exposed-to-the-elements, OE ballasts.
Their die-cast aluminum shell houses a 100% potted circuit board; eliminating any chance of moisture damage. The AMP SuperSeal three-pin connector from our partners at TE Connectivity between the igniter and the ballast ensures the safety of this crucial output.
Slim 17mm body will mount almost anywhere with their extremely functional and attractive eight-position mounting brackets.
If you're like many automotive enthusiasts, we know the setup is always changing and now your ballasts can keep up! Since the igniter cord can be unplugged from the ballast, you can easily change from AMP to D2S or Vice Versa. (without the use of unreliable adapters, that is) Likewise, if an igniter does happen to go bad, it can easily be replaced.
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.
The XB55 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
Designed by Artur Saakayan in California, the Morimoto XB55 Ballasts feature gloss piano black paint. Laser etched graphics. Stainless Steel hardware. Color coordinated mounting bracket and TechFlex braided insulation.
