What People are Saying
“J.W. Speaker’s excellent LED headlamps and auxiliary lamps are a joy to drive with in good and bad weather alike, and they keep getting better and better with each revision. They’re well designed and thoughtfully engineered with well-formed and -focused photometrics, and the build and materials quality are A1.”
— Daniel Stern, General Editor, DrivingVisionNews.com
“After seeing the difference that J.W. Speaker lights could offer, I decided to bring them in and sell them. As soon as we sold the first set, the word spread that these lights were amazing! It’s so nice to sell a quality product that is made in the USA and see the reaction of customers when they come back in raving about them.”
— Jim Oostdyk, Owner, OK Auto, 4WD & Tire
