Introducing the Stage Series C1 LED Pod! Featuring custom-engineered TIR optics combined with a single high-power LED chip, these pods have been designed for maximum performance and light output, in our most compact, versatile package yet. The SSC1 can be mounted virtually anywhere on your car, truck, motorcycle, or UTV, including spots where larger LED pods won’t fit.
Focused. Traditional optics like reflectors or simple lenses lose light internally and to glare, so not all of the light shines on target. Instead, the custom-engineered TIR optic in the Stage Series C1 collects all of the light from the LED, and directs it only where you need it, drastically reducing glare and improving total efficiency.

From there, while other options on the market lose as much as 10% of the light output shining through an outer lens, the custom-molded TIR optic in the Stage Series C1 serves as both the optic and main lens for greater efficiency and light output (patent pending). Thanks to this innovative feature, when coupled with high-intensity LED chips, the total intensity of the SSC1 is much greater than other LED pods using basic optics or reflectors with a standard outer lens.
Functional Patterns. All Stage Series beam pattern options were designed with optical simulation modeling, to shape the output in a highly-functional beam pattern. No matter what your auxiliary lighting needs are, there is a Stage Series optic for you!
Flood pattern was designed to provide uniform, even illumination with a full 50×50 degree spread of light. Unlike generic “flood” lights that are simply a heavily diffused spotlight, our flood pattern uses pillow optics on the outer lens surface, to provide a true optically designed spread, for even illumination throughout. It is perfect to use as a backup light, scene lighting, or for trailers and roof racks.
Wide pattern is perfect for general illumination. It spreads light a full 50 degrees, but keeps a tighter 20-degree vertical spread. It has a slight punch, but still fills out the area. The Wide pattern can be used anywhere you need to shine some extra light!
Spot is an unmodified pattern, shining focused light directly from the TIR optic. The result is a highly-focused 7-degree beam of light, perfect for directing light far into the distance. NOTE: The Pro Spot uses a slightly larger emitter which spreads the light output more than the Sport Spot, resulting in a lower candela and lux rating even at a higher power level.

White or Yellow. All Stage Series LED pods are available in a cool white or selective yellow color. The white is a 6000K color temperature, which is a true cool white output, and matches most factory LED lighting. The selective yellow is a 3000K color temperature, great for high contrast in poor weather or a distinctive look on the road.
Backlight Functionality. The Stage Series C1 LED Pod includes a distinctive backlight feature, in your choice of white, amber, red, and blue. The SSC1’s backlight fully illuminates the TIR optic, providing unique accent lighting that you won’t find in other single-LED pods on the market. This allows you to double the functionality of your setup, by adding an accent light as well as a main beam!
Interchangeable Lens. Need a different beam pattern or color? You can swap it yourself! We offer replacement lenses that allow you to change the color or optic of your Stage Series C1 Pods.
Sport or Pro. Stage Series LED pods are available at two different power levels. Both options use high-intensity LED emitters, and TIR optics for unmatched focus and overall output. However, the Pro option uses a higher amount of total power. Click the Specifications tab to see more information or click here.
Simple connections. All Stage Series C1 LED pods feature a custom-molded DT type Deutsch-style connector on the back, and come with a 6-inch pigtail with bare leads. For installation, you can wire yourself, use an off-the-shelf Deutsch DT-sized wire harness, or select an optional Diode Dynamics wire harness. Our Light Duty Dual Output 4-Pin Harness can be used to power up to four SSC1 pods.
Proven Reliability. Stage Series LED lighting has been extensively tested for long-term operation from -40 to 185 degrees F, along with vibration, moisture intrusion, and corrosion testing. All of these tests are completed to SAE standards, just like factory components. They’ve also been put to the test on-road by racers and enthusiasts alike.
Snap-On Covers. We offer snap-on covers for your Stage Series C1 Pods. These covers are available in a variety of colors and keep your SSC1 Pod clean and protected from dirt, dust, or whatever else the road throws your way! Please check your local laws and regulations for aiming, installation, and applicability.
Experience. After over a decade in business, Diode Dynamics is one of the most trusted names in automotive LED lighting. We directly assemble and engineer our own products in the United States, allowing for higher quality and performance, with the newest and brightest LED technology. No matter what you’re driving, we pride ourselves in offering only the best possible LED solutions. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss your lighting project!
