This is another view of my louvred fixture row in the basement. You can see the difference between CWX and DX lamps.

It doesn't look bad in the picture, but in real life, /CWX next to /DX or /D is one of my least favorite color combinations.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Nice row mount louvers! Reminds me of grade school.

What can i say, I'm a sucker for Westinghouse lamps!

I find this picture to be worse than in real life. In fact, I quite like the combination of CWX and DX, it reminds me of moon mist ice cream. Mind you, I didn't like the colour of CWX at first, but I guess the lamps have worn in a bit and my eyes have gotten used to it. Eventually, this space might become a home office, and I will try to find lamps that are all the same colour.

I don't mind mixing colors (as long as it doesn't get too wild) but it's just particular combinations that I don't like.

Oh, there are combinations I don't like such as warm white with cool white. Also, I don't mind mixing colours when there is good optical separation such as these louvers. Behind a prismatic diffuser, unless the lamps are cool white halo phosphate and daylight, I don't really like the mixing of colours. With triphosphor, I don't really like the mixing of colours unless in louvres.

I don't particularly like the combination of this row and the one next to it (the one in my gallery with a close to EOL lamp) as that one has halo phosphate 34W cool white lamps and I don't like the colour to begin with.

Each to his own, I guess (and I respect that).

I think /WW with /CW is fine. It really is a personal preference thing.

/950 and /CWX is an interesting combo for sure. I think random mixes are interesting if they're really random, but only 2 color temps looks "bad" sometimes. It really just depends on the situation!

Nice! For me, I wouldn't mind mixing the color temp as long as each fixture is one color and there's some sort of pattern to it. Like one fixture is one color, next is another, next is the first color, etc. Or if it's a three-lamp fixture or four lamp fixture and the outer tubes are one color and the inner another. But honestly I hate mixing color temperatures in general. If the fixtures match, the lamps should match. That's my motto lol. If the fixtures in a room are two different types, then I don't mind using one color in one style fixture and another color in the other style fixture. Like in my basement. The two vaportights have Sylvania CWP tubes and the 3X F17T8 wrap has two Philips /835s on the outside and a Philips /830 in the center. With the diffuser, you can't even tell the tubes don't match since they're close together and far from the diffuser.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

I returned at my university this winter for meetings. I hadn't been in the classrooms for a long time. In the room where we were, there are a number of 3-fixture rows of 2xF32T8 wraps. One such row has 3500K lamps in the first fixture, 4100K lamps in the middle fixture and 5000K lamps in the last fixture. Talk about a salesman's sampler !

I think this would look better if all 3 fixtures had one of each color

-------
Personally I think random mixed colors looks tacky in a store/office/school/etc (wouldn't be bad if there was a pattern, something like the center lamps in all fixtures being WW with the outer ones being CW)

At home in some cases I don't care (like the garage, that has a random mix of multiple different colors...and the majority are EOL too)
For plantlights, I make a point to use multiple different lamps (like a 4-lamper, has 4 different...)

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Yeah if there's a rhyme to the reason it looks good. Like floor tiles. I see them mismatched in stores but if there's a pattern it works. At my school they use whatever random tile when fixing broken ones (or just duct-tape the crack lol) and it looks awful. Sometimes they tile OVER the old tiles and it makes the floor bumpy. I should post picks of the tacky floors in the off-topic gallery.

I'm boring but I only like cool white I can't see right unless cool white,my wife don't care for fluorescent lighting (go figure ) but the only way I get away with it in the house is 3000k warm white she doesn't mind that I just hide cool white fixtures in hidden nooks when she's not around I use those. Cool white in these matching is killer but looks cool shows the difference in color

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

Actually, the colorr combination looks more like a CW and SW/N mix. Looks cool!!

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

Very nice fixture. Brings back fond memories of grade school and Duro-Test Vita-Lite PowerTwist 40w lamps!

I abhor mixing colors in these lamps. I hate it here at work when they replace the existing 3500k bulbs with 4100k bulbs.

I love CWX and WWX. Both make colors really pop. Another good one is Natural (N). All of these old-school phosphor lamps were inefficient compared to today's tri-phosphor choices.

For those of us old enough to remember, CWX and WWX in the '70s were the best choices for residential lighting and were a huge improvement over CW and WW.

Nice louvered fixture! Interestingly the building that the turret fixtures were in also had louvered fixtures back in the day but they were Day Brite instead of J. A. Wilson.

My old elementary school had louvredone fixtures back in the mid 80s they looked like they were from the 50s I think they were day bright's but I couldnt tell I was only 7 but they were 96"slimline with very powerful ballasts exellent burnout shows. THAT building has been torn down and rebuilt for over 10 years now. THERE was nice fixtures in there. IT'S too bad they went to light fixture heaven

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts
