I believe that actinic spectrum is around the 420nm range, whereas blue is the 460nm range. I couldnt remember the name for the blue bulbs, so I called them 460nm. (Actinic is too purple for me anyway).
I was going to put the ATI bulbs in my wavepoint t5 setup that I modified to use a URI A4 t5 ballast. This will overpower the bulbs a good bit, and I would use cooling. URI bubls are the only ones I know of that are meant to be overdriven, but they all cast pink hues (yuck!). I figured ATI might survive with some cooling.
Should I even bother with more light? I am using stock wavepoint brand bulbs right now. Might 96W be more than enough for SPS
? How about with ATI bulb upgrades?
Maybe I should just buy the ATI bulbs and put them into my current setup, Current USA Sundial and stick with that? I could then sell the wavepoint+super ballast setup.
