Acura TSX Reverse Light LED

Diode Dynamics carries a full line of LED bulbs, including three different levels of brightness for your Acura TSX reverse light or backup light bulb (7440 size).

Diode Dynamics offers the brightest, highest-quality bulbs on the market, which we have designed in St. Louis, Missouri. Your order will ship same day, and we're here if you need us for support and service. Every bulb carries with it a three-year limited warranty.

Your purchase includes two 7440-sized LED bulb, for perfect fitment in all Acura TSX Models.


Bulb Design


HP11: Four side-firing 1.5W-rated Osram LED chips, and one 5W-rated LED chip on top, which is projected by a lens for maximum effective brightness. The bulb is housed in a machined aluminum casing, which provides superior heat diffusion for long life.

XP80: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains three 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with four more under a projector lens. This is the brightest self-contained automotive LED bulb on the market, and is housed in an aluminum casing with a textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.

Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 7440 terminal, with a locking base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your TSX's factory 7440 bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


COLOR

These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, cool, bright, white hue for maximum light output.

BRIGHTNESS

Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

HP11: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
XP80: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

Lumens. BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures.


QUALITY

LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty.

Are the lights for the 2012 TSX wagon the same as the sedan?

Also I saw you had a first gen TSX sedan full LED package, do you have something like that for the wagon?

I am interested in:
1) Rear license plate LED
2) Interior LED.

I am not sure if tail light on the wagon LED makes a diff, but if it does, I will be interested.

Thank you

Lived in STL (webster groves) 4 years, never knew you guys were there.

Immediately after posting the thread I realized that I left the TSX Wagon out, which can be found here on our site: TSX Wagon - Acura - Bulbs By Vehicle - Lighting

The 2011-2013 TSX Wagons all use a 7440 sized backup bulb

Feel free to give us a call if you need more information: (314) 205-3033

I'll get the wagon backup LEDs added, thanks!

When it comes to describing color, you may consider stating the exact color temperature. 5000K or 6000K for instance. That's a deciding factor for some people.

We will be adding technical specifications for every LED product on our site with exact kelvin temperatures chromaticity chart

If you have any questions about kelvin temperatures, feel free to give us a call: (314) 205-3033

We measure everything extensively to provide accurate information to our customers.


Thanks,
