Just wondering if these can be put into any hood or if space between the bulbs could restrict certain models? Thanks.

Nobody's tried a retro fit?

why wouldn't they work? I don't see why you'd have a problem. Just need to mount them with enough space

Actually a friend brought some over yesterday & we tried. They won't fit into the hood of an RSM 250 unless you were to take the little nut & bolt off the bulb clip, then tac welding the bulb clip to the reflector because the is to little clearance inbetween the existing reflector and the retro reflector kit with that nut & bolt in place. Oh well looks like a new light is in order. This was the likely outcome anyway because I've packed the system with sps & don't think I'm getting quite light to the deepwater acros. Maybe I just need a way bigger setup altogether. Cheers
