  1. i need some help seting up my hps lights, i bought a ballast propperly rated for the bulb i want to use. there is no place to screw in a bulb, i guess i need a fixture? And the voltage is labelled on the appropiate wires but im not sure which is the neg and grownd. Someone plz help!!!
  2. You can't just wire a normal bulb for an hps you need a ballast. However - white is neutral, black is hot, and green is earth ground. But don't kill yourself.
  3. I have a ballast and an approriate bulb. I went the more affordable route and went to a electric wholesaler. But im missing a component(fixture i think). theres five wires three are for different power ratings i found which one is 120v(orange) and theres two more which are black and red.?.?
  4. in the states red is positive black in negative but i dunno if its the same general rule everywhere.
  5. Thanks i got it though
