If you needed more light HD should sell the 4X32 ballast as well.. about $25-30 and overdrive the bulbs..

you can get 2 2x32 ballast for $15, why spend 25-30? To overdrive?

Too much light.. 8O It was a joke mainly.. I did see how cheap those were though.. Thats a deal!! is is a T-8 or T-12 ballast? 2-32 usually means 2- 48" T-8's right??? Your using one ballast per bulb or one for both?

I believe the box says it is for 2 48" T8 or T12. I use one ballast to power 2 32 watt bulbs. I am going to try an use one to power a 55 watt bulb as well.
