Introducing the SS3 3” Max LED Pod! The first of its kind, the SS3 Max utilizes the newest LED chip technology to deliver higher output intensity than any other 3” light on the market.
Focused. Traditional optics like reflectors or simple lenses lose light internally and to glare, so not all of the light shines on target. Instead, the custom engineered TIR optic in the SS3 collects all of the light from the LED, and directs it only where you need it, drastically reducing glare and improving total efficiency.
From there, while other options on the market lose as much as 10% of the light output shining through an outer lens, the custom molded TIR optic in the SS3 serves as both the optic and main lens for greater efficiency and light output (patent pending). Thanks to this innovative feature, when coupled with the brand new Osram HX Boost 20-watt LEDs, the total output intensity of the SS3 Max is greater than any other LED pod on the market today, with a maximum of 251,000 candela, shining light over a kilometer away!
Backlight Functionality. The Stage Series 3" LED Pod is now available with a distinctive backlight, in your choice of white, amber, red, and blue. The SS3's backlight fully illuminates the TIR optic, providing a more unique and modern look than the small indicator LEDs found in other products. This integrated backlight gives you an additional accent light, along with the main beam. To power the backlight, use the included harness to tap your desired vehicle function. NOTE: If you are upgrading your SS3 Pods to Backlit SS3 Pods, you will need to purchase a 2-pin to 4-pin wire tap kit in order to connect your existing 2-pin harness to your new backlit SS3 Pods.
Functional Patterns. No matter what your auxiliary lighting needs are, there is a Stage Series optic for you!
Driving is great for general illumination. Rather than a traditional "spot" pattern, the Stage Series Driving pattern shines in an 18x8 degree spread, providing just enough width to fully illuminate the road ahead at high speeds. Normally, our Driving optic is available as a compliant SAE Driving pattern, but due to its extreme intensity, the SS3 Max exceeds the SAE output requirements. It’s still a great option for off-road use at high speed, such as stage rally racing.
SAE Fog provides an extremely wide field of view, with high-intensity output over an entire 80-degree spread. It serves as a great upgrade for any factory foglamp and will fully illuminate the area in front of your vehicle. The SS3 Max shines with higher intensity than any other fog lamp on the market - by far. Choose your output color of cool white or yellow, which is often said to help cut through inclement weather.
Flood pattern was designed to provide uniform, even illumination with a full 60x60 degree spread of light.
Combo pattern combines both the Driving and Flood optics. It shines light downrange in a focused, rectangular 65x25 degree pattern. The combo lens features a flood optic on one side and a driving optic on the other.
Spot is an unmodified pattern, shining light directly from the TIR optic. The result is a highly focused 6-degree beam of light, perfect for directing light far into the distance. With an incredible output of 251,000 candela, the SS3 Max is capable of illuminating objects over a kilometer in the distance - throwing light further than any other 3-inch pod light ever made.
White or Yellow. All Stage Series LED pods are available in a cool white or selective yellow color. The white is a 6000K color temperature, which is a true cool white output, and matches most factory LED lighting. The selective yellow is a 3000K color temperature, great for high contrast in poor weather or a distinctive look on the road. We also offer replacement lenses that allow you to change the color or optic of your SS3 Pods.
Sport, Pro, or Max. Stage Series LED pods are available at three different power levels. All options use high-intensity LED emitters, and TIR optics for unmatched focus and overall output. The Sport model uses high-intensity LEDs and is the best bang for the buck you’ll find. The Pro model steps things up in a big way, with double the total power. Finally, the Max model is designed with cutting-edge automotive emitters, for both high power and extreme intensity. This brand-new technology comes at a cost, but if you’re looking for the absolute best in lighting performance, the SS3 Max is the answer.
Simple connections. All SS3 LED pods feature a custom-molded DT type Deutsch-style connector on the back and come with a 6-inch pigtail with bare leads. For installation, you can wire yourself, use an off-the-shelf Deutsch DT sized wire harness, or select an optional Diode Dynamics wire harness.
Proven Reliability. Stage Series LED lighting has been extensively tested for long-term operation from -40 to 185 degrees F, along with vibration, moisture intrusion, and corrosion testing. All of these tests are completed to SAE standards, just like factory components.
