Best LED for XP footprint and carclo 1062x lens with FET?

In my modded RGBW Emisar D4 I’m currently using a XP-G2 as single white LED with FET driver. Must be XP footprint, I would like more output and a good tint, preferably warm, rosy and high CRI. XP-L HI should fit, might try this in future, but I don’t like them much in lights with carclo. Nichia 219C gets blue at 9 Amps, XP-L does not fit under dome. Don’t know about XP-L2 though.

Any ideas?

Widen the optic aperture for XP-L?
I have a triple XP-L 3D,bought the optic modded from RMM but it can be easily done.
Only slight jagginess around the corona.
Prob best to have spare optics though Smile

Ah, yes, now I remember I’ve read about this a while ago. Will try to find the regarding thread to learn the best way for widening. I’m sure I have some cracked optics somewhere for exercise. Thanks!

I even have a couple of them. Nice tint but the LEDs are 219B, so to little output unfortunately.

In most cases you wont meet tint shift problems with 10mm tir (that you can see with reflector
), so warm XP-L2 looks best option.
But my suggest is – forget about CRI. With new LEDs you have much bigger probability meeting ugly tint if you order hi-cri.

Regarding XP-L2 – do they fit unter Carclo 1062x? If not, what do you think is better – dedoming or widening the optic?

I think we can say they fit. Tight but optics can be removed without dome damages.

That’s good, I think I will give them a try. And if it’s too tight I can still widen the optic. Thanks!
