Aside from having bulb failures due to moisture intrusion: If the bulbs are functioning and there isn't a problem within the bulb housing (corrosion of the reflective surfaces) and the light output is insufficient; wouldn't the issue more than likely be that the aim is incorrectly adjusted?
I recently purchased a 2019 Equinox LT, Redline that had horrible light output. You couldn't distinguish high beam from low, and generally very poor performance. I understand you are referring to an SRX, but this information can apply to any vehicle!
What I did observe was that I could see the tree tops better than the road.
After a simple adjustment/alignment of the headlamps; I am pleased with the lighting output and performance.
Recently a bulletin has been issued for this problem on my particular year model.
My point is, before condemning the design and headlight components; assure that they are aimed properly: Even dealers struggle to get this correct: After I had the dealer adjust mine, it required a little fine tuning on my part to get the beam in the perfect position.
