Switchback is a term to describe white rings or white LED strips that have an amber function built into them. The amber circuit is typically used in conjunction with turn signal power so that the rings/strips turn amber when the turn signal is depressed, and will blink amber. It will return to white after the turn signal is released.


This acronym is used to describe a color shifting halo or LED strip. It means Red/Green/Blue/White and Amber. The Amber circuit is only used when connected to turn signal power. Red, Blue Green and White are “primary colors” and are used together to produce different color variations.
