Do you mean, in addition to them, or replacing the 175 watt bulbs with the 150 watts?

There are some ballasts that are made for 150/175 but usually the clip is different.

Are they electronic or PFO and what is the name of the ballast?

I'm going to move this to the general hardware/equipment section.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
