We obtain asked by our consumers all the time what's the difference in between a dual beam light bulb and a single beam bulb. Do I need a dual beam LED if I have a dual beam halogen?



When you're trying to choose out the ideal light bulb for your application, a whole lot of times it comes up which kind of light bulb a single beam or dual beam. The most crucial thing to remember is the single beam or dual beam is referring to how several filaments are inside your led bulbs for car headlights, not the fronts lights.



I recognize that's type of perplexing the single beam headlight has 2 light bulbs, the dual beam has one light bulb. But all of it comes down to the light bulb, not the housing.


For instance, this is H4 halogen incandescent light bulb, exceptionally common in different ford applications and also even the Jeep Wrangler. This light bulb has two filaments-- dual beam, this point does reduced beam of light and also high beam of light based on which filament or filaments are brightened.


Now if we most likely to a H7 light bulb, among one of the most common single beam, reduced light beam light bulbs. It has one filament, one filament-- single beam. If you were to take your dual beam halogen bulb as well as put it in a front lights, you're gon na see that you have one big reflector, as well as inside it has one light bulb with two filaments.


This one light bulb does both low and high beam, this is a dual beam front lights bulb as well as the one huge reflector makes it a dual beam housing. If you were to take your single filament-- single beam light bulb and also placed it in something like this one.


You're going to need two bulbs: the low beam is mosting likely to be one of the reflectors as well as the high light beam is going to be the various other reflector. So despite the fact that it takes 2 light bulbs, this is a single beam housing because each light bulb produces one beam of light: low light beam or high light beam.
