[DML] Re: Weird Question Alert.

Short answer 12V.

Longer answer it's a 12V system, so 12V lights would be required.  
The only time voltages would be reduced would be in some internal 
circuit to drive electronics.  And light bulbs do not have any 
voltage dropping reqiurements.  You could use 6V LEDS with the 
appropriate resistor, but then you would be generating more heat 
than if you just use 12V LEDs.  The LEDs have their own internal 
circuitry to handle voltage reduction etc.
