    Hello everyone,

    I am just wondering if anyone out there has run 2 - 400 watt HPS bulbs with a 1000 Watt HPS ballast. I am thinking of downgrading to a stealth dresser on some sort rather than my 5x5x8 plastic room. Thanks in advance.

    No. The problem is that lights designed for one wattage system usually won't work on another wattage system, and even if they do work they end up burning out far earlier then they should.
