Well I installed 3, 160 watt VHO lamps lat night and the light intesity is great, exactly what I was looking for. However I havea couple of annoying issues I need to fix.
1.) The 6500k lamps are very yellow-greenish (not attractive)
2.) The CRI is a little low (76)
I was thinking about picking up another ballast and overdriving a pair of Chroma 50's to compensate. How much wattage can you crank through one of those? As long as the bulb can last around 3 months I'm happy
