Even Spread & Coloration
Once you put the XR15 Diffuser on your Ecotech Radion LED light you will instantly see a better balance of light throughout your aquarium. PAR tests have proven that even though the overall peak PAR numbers will decrease, the lower light areas will actually receive more light from a diffused source. The overall light loss is around 20%, and since a majority of us do not use even 80% of the available lighting output, the PAR loss can be combatted by increasing the overall power delivered to the LEDs.
Increased Spectrum Blending
Diffusing LED lights greatly helps blend the overall spectrum into one cohesive light source. Traditionally aquarium LEDs have used optics to increase the penetration of the light, but doing so actually makes each LED into its own little spotlight, making it harder for colors to blend. With the overall amount of light available in modern reef tank LEDs, more power is not exactly the best thing, and throughout our testing, we have found that evenly spread light that is blended properly is more important for coral health and growth.
LED lights are known for producing a lot of shimmer, also known as the "disco-ball effect" and the Ecotech Radion Diffuser directly attacks this problem head-on. With the overall goal being to mimic the natural sunlight or metal halide shimmer effects, the XR15 Diffuser is not perfect, but it gets much closer than almost any LED available today.
Installation only takes a few minutes, and by unscrewing the bottom plate with a Phillips screwdriver, you can then attach the mounting adapter plate. The diffuser lens will then magnetically attach to the adapter plate. The magnetic attachment makes the diffuser lens very easy to clean

Works like a charm By Quinn on 5/18/2018Quinn would recommend this product to a friendI Love my LEDs, I hate the disco ball effect they create. I used the diffuser on my XR15 Pro gen 3s and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Super quick and easy to install. Super quick and easy to remove diffuser plate for cleaning or diode inspection. Best of all the disco party on my sand bed is now over! If BRS allowed half star rating brackets I would give these 4.5 stars. Do to the fact that the material Ecotech used for the diffuser portion is on the flimsy side and can be VERY easily bent or creased, permanently. Use scissors to open the heavy mil thickness plastic they ship in, trust me. There are sites popping up showing DIY diffusers which cost half the price but the results are nowhere near as complete in terms of even diffusion as the Ecotech Marine product.
Excellent upgrade By brandon on 5/12/2018brandon would recommend this product to a friendMakes a huge difference in visual appeal. Helps with the blinding light from certain angles. And looks good over the tank.
Great outcome, OK build quality By Damian on 3/15/2018Damian would recommend this product to a friendI'm running a XR15 G4 Pro over my Fusion 20 and before I received the diffuser, the disco effect was terrible when running the whiter spectrum. Once I put on the diffuser, the disco effect was practically gone and the light looked very uniform. I am very pleased with the outcome! The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars is because the kit didn't attach perfectly to the fixture and there were some gaps between the fixture and the diffuser. Otherwise, this is a great product for those who hate the disco effect of LEDs.
Soft Diffusion, Subtle Shimmer By William on 1/8/2018William would recommend this product to a friendI use these for all of the XR15 G4s over my system. The XR15s are arranged evenly in two rows of five, which are slightly canted inward and run along the outside of two 8 Bulb 36" Matrixx II fixtures, all of which are suspended 2' over the waterline of a 3' by 9' shallow reef. When compared with the T5s, the XR15s when equipped with these diffusers offer a very similar soft light with a subtle shimmer. In addition to creating a well balanced diffusion, these diffusers eliminate the blinding glare of that can be especially harsh at certain angles caused by the HEI lenses, making these an ideal addition for any Radion placed in a common area.
Does what it advertises By Juan on 12/21/2017Juan would recommend this product to a friendLooks great with a little shimmer but can’t tell it’s an led overhead but maybe a led + MH/T5 combo. Worth it.
Does this work with G3?
The XR15 diffuser is compatible with all previous models of the XR15.
Have a great day.
Does the XR15 also work with the XR15 PRO? Is it redundant?
Will this be available for the XR30?
We expect these to be available for the XR30s sometime in late January.
Have a great day.
