hi

I would like to add a second normal type tube in my 12 inch hood. Does anyone have any links or information explaining their basic operation and how I may fit a duel tube system.

thanks

Daniel

EDIT: after a bit of searching I found what I was looking for. Here is an excellent site which explains the concept and operation very well.

Another option is just puting a screwin bulb socket and going with a screwin compact fluorescent bulb, you can get a daylight 20Watt for around $5, and don't have to worry about ballasts, wires and bulb sockets
