With great control and great results, the Prime Sol is the ideal light for the budget conscious, new hobbyists, and experienced hobbyists alike!
If you`ve been in reefing for awhile, then you may remember the first LED light fixture to prove this “new” lighting tech could grow coral, the AI Sol. A decade has already passed since AI released the Sol, so as nod to the fixture that started it all the new Prime Sol was developed.
The old Sol utilized blue and white LEDs that provided proper spectrum with enough energy at the blue peaks, while the white LEDs filled the rest of the spectrum corals needed. With advancements in LED technology over the last 10 years the new Prime Sol can provide the same proven output in a compact and aesthetically pleasing fixture. Although this fixture may be giving up some color renditions seen in other AI fixtures with only using 4x Royal Blue, 4x Blue, and 4x Cool White LEDs, the bonus is that with less channels, is a less cost – save money on light, and spend more on coral!
What`s New with Prime Sol:
The plastic construct of the new Prime and Hydra lineup benefits in two ways: better efficiency and better looks. The improvement to efficiency reduces the demands on active cooling for longer component life. Improvements to design a thinner fixture reduces their profile and presence over your aquarium.
Design improvements were made to the new Prime and Hydras to make them more water resistant, meaning that they are more resilient in moisture rich environments.

Optics and Output
Referring to PAR, the output, color mixing and spread has all been improved. With more LEDs, providing a full spectrum is targeted with TIR lenses that shape the output of the light while improving efficiency. As a result, there is more color pop, a wider spread, and higher average PAR. The combination of LED placement and lens geometry help blend the light cluster, reducing the color separation.
Mounting hardware as previously available for Prime fixtures will work with the new version lights.
