    PAR64 LED retrofit discussion - Backstage Cowboys Podcast
    Worried about PAR64 bulbs being discontinued? On this episode I'm talking with some folks who have engineered a solution to that problem. 2 brothers from California came up with an LED retrofit unit that pops right into your PAR64 or PAR56 CAN and runs on your existing dimmers. No install, no cabling, nothing. It's as easy as changing a bulb.
