d4v2 e21a mule or change optics?

The only way I can remove the optics on these is by sliding a feeler gauge underneath and moving it around like a can opener. Maybe I can file out the holes in the pcb for the feet?

I’m primarily using these lights for ambience so a mule seems like the best choice. Hank sells a mule with 16 e21a emitters in a circle. What do you think of this 16 mule configuration vs. a quad with a floody optic or a quad mule? One difference I see is that each emitter is going to be powered 25% for the same lumens as a quad, so the duv will be higher.

I wish it was easier for me to remove the optics and try it. I’ve already bought seven of these kr4 and d4v2’s so I’m scrutinizing this purchase closely.

I took the optics out. I Like the 4500k quad mule A LOT. The 4000k seems green though. However, I still don’t now if I will like the way 16 of them would be driven at lower power vs 4 because right now it is perfect, besides the clover shape.

I ordered three regular lights about 5 days ago and don’t think they shipped yet. Its possible I could change the order still.
