Tower speaker lights

Has anyone switched out the factory "driving" lights in their tower speakers for something better, brighter and maybe more spottier? I find they light up the interior and windshield just as much as they do shine out in the water. The reflection off my interior makes it pretty hard to see.

Thanks. I remember that one, just wondering if there's a way to work with the existing system.

In the old days of roof mounted off road lights you cold get a lower visor/deflector for the lights that would block the light from going through the windshield and blinding you. Maybe something like that would work.. Ahhh...1/2 beer can with ends removed.......
