Has anyone found success with LED replacements for PAR56, PAR64, etc? I need the equivalent of PAR56 500w narrow or medium flood, dimmable.
Omg I need these for thisLast year I discovered HyLite LED Lighting. They make a direct PAR56 LED replacement. I put one in a church a couple of months ago and will be going back next month to replace the remaining 7 PAR56 bulbs with LED replacements. We did have to trim the retainer ring to fit the LED replacement. Other than that, the bulb fit the fixture just fine. The church is extremely happy.
Check them out here -- PAR Lamps | PAR64 LED Bulbs | PAR56 Retrofits | PAR45 Lamps. They come in dimmable and non-dimmable variety. Just a note, you will have to order the GX16D adapter separately.
There has got to be a better way to do that.106- 500 watt par 56 and it’s a mofo to get up there let me tell you. About once every 2 months I have to replace like 40-60 of them
The light does appear a little brighter compared to the incandescent. I assumed it has to do with the color temperature. The LED bulb has a 3000K color temp whereas the incandescent bulbs are 2400K to 2700K.Do you notice a difference in the light?
At $200ea, most of the places I deal with probably arent interested.
That’s just because my phone was looking straight into it. Actually the mosaic looks really cool. However it’s on its way out up grading all the lighting in the whole church. Just gotta baby this thing along until after ChristmasThere has got to be a better way to do that.
For starters, you cant appreciate all the artwork on the ceiling due to the glare from the lights.
