I aimed these parts at guys wanting to build better than "average" rigs so I did not include the cheesy little blue inverters that whine and have the God awful wiring harnesses. I have a scrap drawer in my shop full of those that I should really throw out. My thinking was why add it into the kit just to check that box when everyone either has top end inverters and bay devices or should be using them anyway. Just adds needless cost.
Performance is likely just pointing customers to their inverter selection.
There are three types of CCFL's. One is a twin bulb unit sized to the same length as the tube sections that fits the 25mm and 50mm mounts. There are also CCFL Plugs that allow you to insert the CCFL bulb directly into the reservoir via any of the end ports--up to 3 per end cap so you could concievably have six in one reservoir...if you wanted to sun tan your teeth as you admire how beautiful your new rig is =) These are not quite done yet as we had to redo the USW tooling. Should be about 2 or 3 weeks.
The last are two bulb CCFL kits that match the reservoir CCFL's so that you can put light into other locations in your case and have them exactly match. They have SUPER clean black ends and none of that acrylic cube end stuff with Velcro pads that fall off as soon as it gets a little warm in your case.
There is actually a 4th type of lighting in the works that also uses the acrylic tube down into the reservoir, but these use addressable LED's. This allows you to do insane linear and rotational warp core effects with addressable RGB (color changing) LED's. We are working with "Just a Bunch of Geeks" on these and they will be compatible with their Guardian bay controllers. These are still about a month out but should be pretty amazing for those looking for serious lighting effects.
