Morimoto Instruction Guide
OFF-ROAD REINVENTED: Since 2008, Morimoto has been building the best lighting upgrades for the automotive aftermarket… Consistently turning out products packed with more performance, reliability, and best in-class fitment & style. As a new player in the off-road game, we have embraced that philosophy big time, pumped up the Redbull intake, and now it’s time for the old competition to rethink their strategy. The brand new, patent-pending line of 4Banger Off-Road LED lights were completely designed, engineered, and tested in the USA, and everything about them is truly next level.
HXB COMBO BEAM: Illuminates a clear path with medium range. The HXB Combo beam provides a blend of width and distance illumination making every day driving in the middle of nowhere far more comfortable. The 8H x 4V oval hot spot with a 10V degree spread at beam center has been perfectly tuned to produce an ideal flood beam. The 4Banger HXB Combo is an excellent aid to any set of high-performance headlights.
HXB SPOT BEAM: Illuminates far into the distance unlike anything else on the market. The HXB Spot comes standard with the most powerful Osram LEDs, which in combination with the HXB LED optics produces a beam pattern capable of penetrating up to 800 meters into your future. No matter the speed, you’ll never outrun your ability to see with the 4Banger HXB Spots.
HXB WIDE BEAM: Illuminates the ground directly in front of the vehicle. The HXB Optics feature dual axis control. 1) for width, and 2) active hot spot control to project peak intensity right along the top of the beam pattern. The proper vertical gradient resembles an SAE-Compliant fog light pattern, but with added intensity throughout thanks to the Osram HX Boost LEDs. The 4Banger HXB Wide beam delivers the best combination of width, intensity, and control — making it the most effective off-road LED fog light in the world.
NCS COMBO BEAM: Illuminates a clear path with medium range. The HXB Combo beam provides a blend of width and distance illumination making every day driving in the middle of nowhere far more comfortable. The 8H x 4V oval hot spot with a 10V degree spread at beam center has been perfectly tuned to produce an ideal flood beam. The 4Banger HXB Combo is an excellent aid to any set of high-performance headlights.
NCS SPOT BEAM: Illuminates well into the distance. The NCS Spot features a highly focused 5-degree hot spot that’s surrounded by a 14H x 4C degree flood beam, making it the perfect weapon for long range visibility. While not quite as powerful as the 4Banger HXB Spot (which uses Osram LEDs), when paired up with a set of NCS Combos, you will have no problems avoiding deer in the distance.
NCS WIDE BEAM: Illuminates the ground directly in front of the vehicle, making them a perfect complement to a set of high-performance Morimoto headlights. They produce a very wide beam to drastically improve visibility off to the sides of the road. Superior vertical gradient control eliminates glare to oncoming traffic, and when mounted in the fog light position and aimed appropriately, will meet SAE standards for on-road use as a fog light.
FORM MEETS FUNCTION: The overall footprint of the 4Banger is approximately 30% smaller than alternatives that offer comparable performance. This allows for an unbeatable OEM+ like fitment when paired with Morimoto’s fog light or A-Pillar mounting kits, which are available for today’s most popular trucks. Don’t be that guy with LED pods bulging out of your bumper.
PERFORMANCE: There are no “off the shelf” guts inside of a fancy housing here. Every element of the 4Banger is proprietary. LucidShape was used to optimize performance around the most modern, lumen-dense LEDs from Nichia. Thermal dynamics have been optimized using SolidWorks. The 4Banger is available with three industry-leading beam patterns to suit every need. Wide/Fog, Spot, and Combo. Patent Pending Design.
ALL WEATHER: The white-output version is ideal for all-around visibility. For those who desire optimal output in rain, snow, or fog–the Yellow-output version will slay in shady weather. Morimoto has opted for LEDs that produce yellow light at the origin, which is the most effective way to penetrate through particles in the air without compromising output (Filtering white light through a yellow lens achieves the look, but no actual performance benefit in poor weather).
RELIABILITY: With power comes great responsibility. Extensive effort went into ensuring the reliability of the product. High power means high heat, which is why the 4Banger features a copper DTP (direct thermal path) PCB that maximizes heat-transfer to the radiator, which has been optimized through numerous rounds of thermal analysis. The cast aluminum shell is electroplated before powder coating to withstand flaking. The potted internals, over-molded input wiring, and main gasket are all designed according to IP69K standards for full weather resistance.
STREET LEGALITY: With a standard -3 degree aim, the NCS Wide beam model is compliant with the latest SAE F3 regulation for use as a street-legal fog light. The HXB Wide Beam has a very similar beam pattern, but too much intensity to be considered a street-legal fog light.
