Frequently Asked Underwater Light Questions:

1. Which underwater light do you recommend for my boat?

Oh what a loaded question… but everyone still asks it!  Of coarse the real answer is ‘it depends’… but here’s the advice we’d give a friend:

  • You’re going to be happy with any Lumitec product first off… there’s no significant ‘quality of construction’ difference from series to series
  • Larger boats (~28ft +) we’d normally guide toward SeaBlaze X series, mostly based on output Lumen.
  • The full RGBW Spectrum lights are super cool… but there’s a cost premium to them, if cost is a major factor consider a single color variation.
  • The new Lumitec Quattro line is one of our favorites for overall value.
  • On smaller boats (<18ft) consider the Mini series… they’re a nice option for the price conscious.

2. How many underwater lights do I need?

As a rule of thumb we normally recommend the number of engines you have, plus one.  So two underwater lights for a single.  Three for twins (two outside, one in center).  Four for trips, etc.  Underwater lights are usually installed between each outboard, plus two on the outside.

Generally 1 light per 2 1/2 to 5 feet of beam at the transom will give a nice uniform glow at the stern.  As far as depth, underwater lights should be installed 8″ to 16″ below the waterline.

3. What is this “Time Toggle Protocol” (TTP) thing?

Great question.  TTP is a protocol developed by the engineers over at Lumitec so that the user can control the various functions of the lights.

The TTP is a system of commands – in this case – given over the power wiring by toggling the power on and off quickly (<1 second or so).

Toggling the power to the light off will send the light into the next mode.  “Modes” vary depending on the specs of that particular light (see the product specific page above), but examples include:

  1. Change colors (dual color lights)
  2. Constant ON (100% brightness)
  3. Cross-Fade – randomly cycles between colors or intensities
  4. Flashing / strobing between colors
  5. Dimming – interrupt a slow ramp up with a swift toggle off, locks in the current intensity

4. Do your underwater lights require syncing or control cabling?

No!  The advanced design or our Lumitec underwater lights equipped with TTP allow mode selections without the need to run any control cabling that might be required with other brands.

This is one of the great innovations of TTP, allowing existing conductors to be used without the need to pull new wires.

Underwater lights drifting out of color synch is rarely an issue.  But in the unlikely even that multiple lights become unsynched they can be simply toggled off for a few seconds to be re-initialized with color/intensity re-synchronized automatically.
