The A500X is a powerful 185W high intensity LED designed specifically for experienced SPS coral growers. This fixture integrates the latest Dense Matrix LED technology with the proprietary Kessil Logic, and delivers a concentrated light with well blended spectrum for optimum SPS coral growth, health, and coloration. The beam of this flagship A500X can be adjusted with optional 35 and 55 degree reflectors and allow SPS corals to thrive in a variety of environments.


The A500X rounds out the X-Series Family with each of the 3 X-Series lamps filling a specific role within the larger hobbyist market.

A360X: Utility tool - flexible for small tanks, scalable to large ones
AP9X: Perfect for Mixed Reefs - unbeatable coverage. The best coverage on the market, designed for your standard mixed reef tanks that most hobbyists have (3-4’ long, 75-120 gallons per unit)
A500X: SPS Dominant and Custom Systems - High powered for high end SPS tanks. Custom reflector options allow for deep tanks or mounting high above the tank.

The A500X can be controlled by the manual knobs, Spectral X Controller, or WiFi Dongle. The unit can also be K-Linked with other X-Series fixtures.

The A500X has all of the Kessil features that have come to be expected with Kessil units - including Kessil Logic, our best in the industry color mixing, state of the art heat management, full color and app control, and the famous Kessil Shimmer.

Units will be available for purchase in the US March 31st, and shipping internationally later this year.

I’m fine with my AP9X as well. Acros and montis as well as LPS growing just fine. I could see it being used for the right situation though.
Of course. I want more light over my tank but I might just get some reef brights lol. Just for additional coverage over shaded areas but let me not talk down on an official kessil post. Basically I’m saying I love my kessil A360xs and they’re growing acros and all other sps just fine In my reef which is why I don’t need these lights. When I got my reef started A360x was their top of the line light so if I was just starting out right now I would have probably bought these. But now that I have acro frags that just got dropped in my tank 2 months ago with crazy growth I kno I don’t NEED to upgrade..... here’s 2 months growth after just buying this one frag in particular. Thanks KESSIL :)

I have them set spectrum wise to the BRS recommended setting and I’ve just been slowly cranking them up in intensity until I reach 100%. I think I’m at 88-90 right now. Not exactly sure and I’m not home to check...

4 kessil 360s are doing the bulk of my SPS growing. Not sure why there’s so much hate on kessils. I’ve been using them since they first came out and love them. The shimmer actually makes the tank look like the ocean. I might have to pick one of these up. They look dope.
