Modernaire owners: TKO question

cottonpennyMay 27, 2012

What color temperature are the halogen lights on the hood?

I'm getting under-cabinet lights and there's a choice of bright white or soft white. Are the Modernaire lights closer to incandescent or are they more daylight-y?

I've got 6 on my 42" & they are BRIGHT, dimmable though. I don't think soft white would apply here.

Thanks ratfinger! So they are more white than yellow and would match better w daylight balanced LCD ucls than ones meant to imitate incandescents?

We have few ModernAire hoods in the store, I recently replaced a bulb with the following

Philips "Halogena" 50W Bright, White Light.

Brightness is 545 lumens.

Got these from Home Depot.
