With design elements inspired by marine fauna, high-performance automotive engineering, and the sun itself, the AP9X boasts a sleek, unobtrusive profile with an aesthetically pleasing touch panel. Not just a box of LEDs—the AP9X compliments the natural beauty of a well-maintained aquarium.
Since the development of the patented Dense Matrix LED array began in 2006, we’ve been constantly innovating and improving our technology. The latest iteration of the Dense Matrix array enables us to place the chips closer than ever before. More chips in a tighter space results in better color mixing and a brighter single point source - more like the sun on a natural coral reef.
The AP9X sports a newly redesigned heat sink and an efficient vortex fan that reduces the accumulation of dust and debris - extending longevity and enhancing efficiency. Such an advanced heat management system also contributes to the low profile form factor.
More efficient LED chips and better heat management result in less energy being lost as heat. This means more light for your reef with the same power draw as before.
