  1. Ok Im not a noob (just for the record not that theres anything wrong with that) but i didnt know where to ask this. How much less safe is a 400 watt hps do it your self ballast then say an electronic or a pre made one from a manufactorer- also how loud are there 400w do it your selfer ballasts? im used to fluros (dub phiends t-8 cab design from OG to be exact) thanks
  2. i'm pretty sure you get less lamp life overall with a magnetic ballast as oppossed to an electronic one
  3. i know im not concerente dwitht he life of the ballast just how much more dangerous it is then a pre build from a hydro store and how loud the hum of the ballast is ..thanks thoo
