D2S: Morimoto XB55

$140.00 CAD

The XB55 is Morimoto’s latest and greatest generation of 50W HID ballasts packed with more power and reliability then ever before! These ballasts are great replacements for D2S or D2R OEM HID ballasts. PLEASE NOTE: The power these ballasts put out is not recommended for most applications unless retrofitted with high quality HID projectors, otherwise please use the XB35 versions.

Ballasts: Morimoto XB55 (Pair)
Igniters: Morimoto XB D2S (Pair)
Brackets: Eight Point Steel
Warranty: Two Years

Inspired  Packaged into a more retrofit-friendly design, The new XB’s feature countless elements derived from the most popular OEM benchmarks. As good as they are; even arrogant retrofitters may start second-guessing those bulky, power hungry, exposed-to-the-elements, OE ballasts. Educate yourself on some of the differences in this video.

Protected  Their die-cast aluminum shell houses a 100% potted circuit board; eliminating any chance of moisture damage. The AMP SuperSeal three-pin connector from TE Connectivity between the igniter and the ballast ensures the safety of this crucial output.

Compact  Slim 17mm body will mount almost anywhere with their extremely functional and attractive eight-position mounting brackets.

Versatile  If you’re like many of us retrofitters: the setup is always changing and now your ballasts can keep up! Since the igniter cord can be unplugged from the ballast, you can easily change from AMP to D2S or Vice Versa. (without the use of unreliable adapters, that is) Likewise, if an igniter does happen to go bad, it can easily be replaced.

Fast, Friendly and Efficient  Power hungry ballasts never work well with tricky CanBus systems, but the new XB55 ballast consume < 5A on ignition without compromising their reasonably quick warm up speed. That’s much less than Denso, Mitsubishi, FastBright, and the old Morimoto too, which makes their ability to reach full intensity a more efficient process.

Quiet  Like all modern OEM D1 and D2 ballasts: the XB has relocated igniters far closer to the HID bulb. The lack of high voltage transmitted through wiring drastically reduces EMI/RFI (radio interference). Total system reliability is also improved by shielding the main circuit board from the static produced by these high voltage bursts on start up.

Reliable & Smart  The XB55 ballasts are designed to last for 2500 hours and there’s not much that will stand in their way. The Matured DSP 2.0 software recognizes outside system faults such as a loose high voltage connection, and after one misfire will cut power rather than potentially self-destruct.

Functional Works of Art  Designed by Artur Saakyan in California, the Morimoto XB55 Ballasts feature a gunmetal paint job. Laser etched graphics. Stainless Steel hardware. Color coordinated mounting bracket and TechFlex braided insulation.
