Which color of LED should I use?

For the most vivid color and best results the LED color should be the same as the lens color. If a white LED is used behind a red lens some of the useable light is filtered out. If a white LED is used behind an amber lens the color will be bright yellow. We offer two color temperatures of white, 5K which is pure white, and 6K which is white with a tint of blue.
