you are so far from the truth on this one buddy...

You have no idea the countless hours spent designing, test fitting, soldering, wiring them up that were put into them.

And this is coming from a guy that personally helped put them together and test prototypes.

Oracle is 100% all asian product, everyone knows that. Which is why they mark up their stuff 300% and still give you a lifetime warranty.. cuz they know it'll break/fail eventually.

Well that's nice to know but I was just speaking from experience. Seen so many things rebranded that alot of people don't realize they are not getting the original product. I did say that I was not sure about NightOwl but I bet they were not original, but as usual most people read what they like and then come up with their own interpretations. Anyhow I bet wrong this time and good for NightOwl. No need for a war lol!

Cool. A rare guy that can admit a mistake. No worries. Sorry. Passionate about a good business owner that really tried hard.

I got this Night owl kit or part of a kit from a friend, I have a couple questions because i'm not that smart with this stuff.

1. What do I need to make it work? he said something about a master Or can I just hook the rings up to a led controller and they work?

2. What is the black box with the two sets of wires coming out each end? does it hook up somewhere?


Thanks

Looks like a MiniSL and DRL halo led rings. Box is a driver.

You can add a Master or use any controller.

you won't be able to use the SL Module without a master. You can plug in the mini halos and the 2 little driver boxes to a standard rgb remote and they'll work just fine.

The passenger side halo starts fickering a light purple color. But if I select a color from one of the programs is works fine.
