The purple is bright there, I was trying to show the setup when I took the picture. The lights came with a controller and they dim/brighten and change all different colors. More stuff than I need from a light, but dim red is nice when camping (picture is bright red)

Personally I like the purple because it reminds me of Tomorrowland in Walt Disney world. Go ahead and laugh but that atmosphere is relaxing

you need to have it grounded to work right. you risk blowing it up not having it installed correctly. BIG MISTAKE! mounted to the fiberglass shell NO GROUND (unless you ran one)

its lengthy............but read it do it ... or you can fry your radio by keying the mike!!!!!!!!
