    I have a couple pairs of Hella 700ff's I am going to wire up here soon. Trying to figure out what kind of switch I need. I know they come with switches, but I want to use a rocker switch. Not looking for brands, but the kind of switch. I know there are three male ends on the back of the switch provided... thanks for the help!

    These are pretty much the same. I have a carling one, never owned a daystar, just heard they are good. Either switch will be perfect. Or do what the other guy did.

    Ok cool. I like the rocker switches, they make some cool covers with labels and all that cool stuff I am sure you guys have all seen. Worth spending and extra $5 for keeping the inside of the truck clean!

    Exactly. I mounted a couple hella 500's and used the crappy round switch they come with. Not a crappy switch actually, it just looks crappy the way its mounted. I am gonna be replacing it with a rocker switch soon.
