Well, the way I see it, the light amplitude (brightness) is about the same on low and high beam. When you switch to highs and the cut-off "gate" moves out of the way, the beam pattern just extends higher. I think it would be nice to have that plus an additional lamp to make the high beam both larger and brighter. Actually, the best thing would be to be able to enable or disable the second bulb on the fly. -- -Fred W
