HID Systems: are hardly old news, and Profile is here to prove that with the all-new Powerhouse kit. Not only will the setup easily out-perform the most modern LED headlight bulbs, but it will blow away every other HID kit on the market. Not only because the quality of the components is superior, but also thanks to the secret weapon that is the Powerhouse variable wattage ballast. Pair that with a set of the Profile bulbs, a high quality relay harness from Morimoto, and we have perfection.
Why: It hasn't been done before? We have no idea...because the Powerhouse ballasts are genius. Put simply: they'll deliver a steady 35W of power to your HID bulbs until you kick the high beams on, at which point they'll boost output to a more powerful 50W. Safety in the form of reliability and longevity. Super in terms of your ability to see well when you need it most. Powerhouse in terms of their eventual popularity thanks to their ability to deliver the best of both worlds, which just isn't possible with a dedicated 35W or 50W system.
Wiring: All low and high voltage wiring is insulated with braided nylon for abrasion resistance and an OEM+ appearance. The pass-through cables on the bulbs are also shielded with stainless steel mesh and bound with clamps on each end to keep everything nice and tidy. Silicone rubber seals are standard on all bulbs and every connection across the included relay harness, and help ensure your headlight housings and all connections are kept dry through all seasons. The wiring side of HID systems are often overlooked, but this could not have been executed any better. Plug n Play perfection!
Output: The standard bulbs in the system coming packin' with all the goods one would expect from a top dollar HID system. Prax-air gas chamber. Messer germany halide salts. Philips Quartz Glass. It's as good as it gets, and that surely shows in their output ranging from 2900-3400 lumens per bulb at 35W. Available in industry-favorite Kelvin (color) ratings of a warm white 4500K, a pure-white 5500K, and a cool-white 6500K.
Form & Function: Gotta give it up to the Profile design team, because all of the components look awesome too. The ballast has these sweeping curves that flow from the edges of their inputs and morph into mounting points on the backside. The Profile crown adorns the face of the ballast, and the seafoam green screws that hold the shell together look sweet too. Very unique. Very compact. Very functional. Very good!
Optics: Each bulb is carefully designed and then assembled with precision in mind. Once locked into your headlight, the HID arc will be positioned in the same position as the original halogen bulb's filament – which will ensure a properly distributed beam pattern. Despite the added intensity, these bulbs should create no more glare to oncoming traffic compared to stock.

I purchased the Powerhouse HID system since I only have bi-xenon projectors, no separate high-beam bulb.
None of the inputs are labeled, but eventually I was able to figure it out. It doesn't include high-beam splitters to connect to both the projector solenoid and the ballasts, so you will need to purchase those.
I ordered 5500k bulbs. These proved to be so much brighter than my previous halogen bulbs, I don't even think this kit was necessary for me! I went from avoiding night driving, to wanting to carve up the backroads well into the night.
Ease of Install: 4/5
- No documentation arrived with these. It doesn't even list what each of the 3 inputs are for (as far as I know).
- The wiring and connectors are very well made. I have no concerns with it.
- The Ballasts come with mounting hardware, and seem very durable
- I was blown away with the light output.
What I would improve? Maybe labeling the packaging showing what each connector is for. (Input, High beam input, output) They do only fit in the correct spot, but it would have saved me a couple minutes.
Make sure you get high beam splitters.
