JW Speaker 8700 LED Headlight Review

7" Round LED Headlight

The legendary 8700 LED Headlight by JW Speaker Corp.

Recently I took the time to review a set of black-housing JW Speaker model #8700, 7″ Round LED Headlights. Needless to say I was blown away with the quality, style, and output. First some quick stats: 1,200 lumen light output, available in black and chrome housings, high and low beam function, 2.5amp current draw at 12 volts DC.

The smooth and powerful light output features a wide sweep from left to right and no distracting hot spots or lines that create shadows on the road. The light output on low beam leaves nothing to be desired, and high beam doesn’t offer much more. If anything could be improved on this set of lights it’s the high beam. It is almost non-existent and nothing like an OEM style bi-xenon hi/lo setup where the high beam floods light output way up high. The JW Speaker 8700 high beam adds a little extra “bump” in the center, but doesn’t really extend the reach upward but rather increases intensity.

Watch the video for a live demonstration and a comparison between the JW Speaker model and the original LED headlight from Truck-Lite:

These LED Headlights are the epitome of cool and the ultimate lighting accessory for any vehicle that comes from the factory with 7″ round headlights, either sealed beams or factory composites. Some of the vehicles that these lights will work in are the Jeep Wrangler, Mercedes Benz G500, Old Ford Mustang, Older Volkswagens, Hummer H1 and H2, and many industrial or commercial vehicles.
