    Why isn't there a PAR the size of an MR 16, or at least halfway? Or is there something like that? It would create cheaper housings, eliminate socket problems, and offer tightly focussed beams. Or am I wrong? What the heck do I know.

    Didn't you see my post about a month or so ago where I was looking for a PAR 30 12volt bulb to be made

    Why would lamp manufacturers want to go that route? Didn't you get the memo? Incandescents are on their way out. LEDs are the wave of the future.

    You are being premature. That is yet to be seen.

    Sorry Pete, I was being sarcastic. I thought you'd get it.

    PAR= Parabolic Anodized Reflector MR= Mirrored Reflector
    We shall split the difference in the wattage and call the new bulb "Para-ana-mirror 26"

    There are several PAR lamps available that are Smaller then PAR20. You can find PAR16 and PAR14 Lamps at better stores and through your electrical wholesaler. These are Line Voltage lamps of course.

    As for MR series LV lamps, there are MR16, MR11 and MR8 available.
