Dj auto headlight bulb type

I know the low beams are H7 but what are the high beams? I bought a set of hids from DDM for my depo lights. Then I wrecked my car and ruined the depos so I have a set of hids and the DJ autos come with hids. Will the H7 bulbs fit in the high bulb sockets? Then I'll have low and high hids.

I do not know the DJ Auto's. (I have Depo's) but the Depo's use H1 bulbs for both highs and lows. Through looking at you low bulbs do they mount the same as your highs?





EDIT:









BOOM!

Where was it unclear? I stated flat out that I have Depo's and that they use H1s in both highs and lows.

Then from the manufacturers website for DJ Auto's I posted the screenshot with the fact that they also use H1s in both highs and lows.
