JBJ is teasing the “Pacifica” with lots of Tshirts and banners here at Reefapalooza but not mentioning that much else. However we had the chance to read the minds of the JBJ reps and we’ve learned that the Pacifica will be a mass produced version of the JBJ Unibody that we already love. In lieu of the hand crafted machines JBJ unibody we expect that the JBJ Paciica LED will have an extruded aluminum heat sink, passive cooling and limited controllability. The JBJ Unibody LED is already aggressively priced and feature rich at $349 so we hope that the price of the JBJ Pacifica LED will have a price that is balanced with its limited features.
