Westminster Speed and Sound has been involved in the lighting category since 1969. That’s a long time. We were one of the first companies to offer upgraded headlights, fog lights and driving lights before most people even knew those products existed. We were fortunate to experience the huge benefit of seeing better at night and instantly started offering upgraded lighting products to our clients. In more recent years, LED technology has transformed the whole category. Most of it is good, but some not so much.
Follow along as we explore how you can improve your night-time vision and cosmetics on your car, truck, SUV, RV, motorcycle or powersports vehicle. If it moves, chances are we have a lighting solution for you.
Improved Night-time Vision Needs a Lighting Consultation
First things first. When we are driving at night, we don’t see as well as during a bright, sunny day. If you are like most people, you would take the option of seeing farther and more clearly at night if it were offered to you.
This is where it gets more interesting. Since modern vehicles have very different designs for their front bumpers, even with the same vehicle, adding improved lighting is truly a case-by-case process. The only way to accurately know the best solution for your particular vehicle is to have a lighting consultation with one of our highly trained staff. One of our staff will go out to your vehicle and look it over to see how it came equipped, as well as options for mounting additional lighting properly. We also will discuss improved bulb options for your factory headlights and fog lights. Then we will work up a proposal that we feel will give you the best benefits for your money.
Adding Additional Lighting
For many people, adding additional lighting is the best solution, whether it is for cosmetic improvement or better performance. Westminster Speed & Sound offers fog lights, driving lights, spotlights and reverse lights in many different configurations. From round to square and even bar designs, we have you covered. You can still get halogen lighting from us, but LED is definitely the king these days. Whether you are building a weekend warrior or simply want better vision at night, we can help.
Custom Mounting Solutions
As lighting has gotten more popular, many vendors have begun offering custom mounting solutions for lighting products. Popular options include bumper mounts, roof mounts, windshield mounts and – of course – factory fog light replacement options. If someone doesn’t offer a mount for your particular application, just ask us. We may have an in-house custom mount solution for you.
Better Products Mean Better Performance
With the advent of LED lighting came a flood of cheap, knockoff lighting that, frankly, doesn’t work well. When used in an on-road situation, the poor optics tend to blind oncoming traffic and generally don’t put the light where you need it. We have chosen to partner with the best brands in the business, such as Piaa and Rigid, because they spend significant resources on designing optics that direct the light precisely where it is most needed. You will also find that our lights will last much longer than the cheap imitations. While you will pay more in the beginning, you end up with a product that will last for a very long time and save you money over the long term.
Improve your Headlight Performance
Many vehicles on the road today get very poor performance from their headlight systems. We offer several different solutions to improve light output and color. Ask us about your vehicle.
Factory-fit Fog Lights
If your vehicle is a lower trim level that didn’t come with factory-equipped fog lights, ask us about our solutions. For many popular vehicles, we have options that will make your car, truck or SUV look like it came from the factory with fog lights.
