Hey gas funny seeing you here
nice work mate nice setups, good fun for sure!!
i feel so at home here! lol...glad to have you all along. why wouldnt you run it on super lumens gas? thought that was the point of getting the matching ballast and bulb. extra lumens in the high PAR range...
Matching the bulb and ballast are to run at the correct frequency which ups lumen count and bulb life. Running a tad more electricity through the bulb than it's designed for (super lumen) will put out slightly more light but at a lower efficiency. By all means you can do it but it just isn't totally necessary and will cause your light to depreciate a bit faster. IMO the best use for super lumen is when your bulb is really old. At that point you've already lost 15% of your light so the extra wattage just bumps it back to normal for the last stage of the bulbs life.
Here's a video that might help - everything they say about the digilux should also be true for the lumatek high PAR bulb.
makes sense. lol. guess i better stop running on super lumens!
deeeeeelish!! keep it going, going to be some killer erbs
dang lookin good, keep em coming
