As a trusted retro fitter, I often get asked about the Acme Super and the Mini H1 7.0 Projector. Typically, customers or fellow "fitters" want to know how the two compare.
First of all, and most obviously, the price is a main factor. Acme Super projectors usually sell for around $50.00 and Morimoto Mini H1 7.0 projectors are about double their cost at $120.00. This cost differential is what leads to the major differences between the two. However, there are a few similarities.
At their core, they essentially have the same structural build. Both the Morimoto Mini H1 7.0 and the ACME Super projector measure in at 2.5 inches and both have features that allow them to be easily mounted. However, that is where the similarities end. The Morimoto is built with much sturdier materials which is why it is more expensive.
Primarily, the Morimoto Mini H1 7.0 projector has a far superior build. The recent updates on the Morimoto Mini H1 7.0 projector have been major. These updates impact the longevity and durability of this product, and also the light output.
Due to said design changes, Morimoto significantly outshines the Acme projector. The beam presents itself with more intensity and fewer inconsistencies.
Above is a side-by-side comparison between low beam lights using said projectors.Below are comparison pictures of said projectors in high beams.
In conclusion, you get what you pay for. While the Morimoto Mini H1 7.0 projector is quite a bit more expensive, the product has proven to be superior. However, that being said, the Acme Super projectors are a phenomenal product for their price point and will provide significant advancements in your car's lighting output as opposed to your preexisting stock options.
