Is that a type of CV lamp or lamp/reflector combo? I've never heard of "sun replicators" by CV.

Alright, I've seen them before I've just never heard of the "sun replicator" label. Looks like a good set up best of luck w/ it, let us know what you think of it .

I was told by more than one person that with over 95% reflectiveness the 250w in these is supposed to be close to the output of a 400w retro. I emphasize "I was told". I mainly got them for the splash protection and the neatness.

hellolights.com I got two 250w retro kits for $300 including bulbs. Not sure if the price is still the same but its worth a try. I just changed my bulbs. Im running 15K xm's. If you want a certain bulb they will let you upgrade for a few $ more
