Question Connecting 2 Dyno hub Lamps and Lumotec Lyt beam question

I have a Shimano DH3N72 & I have 2 lights the Dlumotec Oval N Plus & the Lumotec Lyt N plus. I've connected them individually but can I connect them together so that I light bothup when on a Brevet??? if so how should I go about wiring??? I don't use a Dyno tail light.

While using as a single light mounted on the Fork Crown; I like the beam pattern & the light of the Dlumotec Oval light, But the Lyt has a very square light.. like a spot light . Has anyone used it??? I'm I doing something wrong? Should I get another Dlumotec Oval instead??

Lightbulb I'm a nerd... got the lights working

Ok I've got the 2 headlights working together.... what a nerd I am . I never paid enough thought to it that there are spare connectors there on the lights just for this purpose.

As for the lyt beam. I still think that it's a bit boxed, like the E6... but very bright.

I think the "extra" contacts on the B & M headlights are for a wired tail light. Don't know if the tail light connction is current limited or not. If so, the light connected to the tail light service might be less bright. You can connect two headlights in series (my two IQ Flys are running that way), but you need to get the polarity right or neither will work-no damge will be done, just no light.--george
