Seen here with the cover open for servicing. As you can see it is very roomy inside with lots of HID potential.

If you do HID you'd have to make a reflector of some sort to block light from attacking the wiring. Even HPS will harm the wiring if not shielded from the lamp.

Yes and I have just the right kind of metal to make that with. I have some 2x2 ft aluminum sheet metal that used to be the reflector inside 400w MV fixtures

The fixture has a sticker inside that says max 150w so I would assume safe for a 70w MH ? I would have to redo the socket assembly and fit a pulse rated one in. I would do 35wHPS but I have 5 wallpacks with that and my shopping list for 35wHPS lamps and gear is extensive as a result. Could also do 40w MV but I would have to use my robertson preheat 1xF40 ballast

I have an extra 35w HPS ballast if you'd want it. I also have a few 70w metal halide ballasts.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Yeah 70W PSMH would be fine. Just monitor it to see how hot it gets in operating position. These things are recessed in ceiling voids that generally don't have great ventilation (unless installed on a flood with attic space above it) so the heat really builds up. 70w PSMH shouldn't be an overkill though.

None at all, no UV in there either so can do without the reflector

LPS would be cool if you don't have any plans to use it for general lighting. Though I guess in the right circumstances it would be a cool accent light in the middle of a game room or something.

Make it dual HPS MV

Like an HID version of those dual color temp LED bulbs.

Eye makes dual arc tube grow lamps that use a MH and HPS arc tube. It's cheaper to get multiple separate bulbs though lol.

Its a neat idea but I cant do that or i'll have to order more lamps and ballasts to make up for the extra fixture. I was thinking of SOX18 because I have a second ballast coming in and working on getting in a case of lamps. This fixture I would use in a foyer type entrance area where you have a little room between the inner and outer doors, this would be perfect in that space. Either that or would be used outside on the underside of the roof covering the front entrance. My ideal home would have something like that.

A reason I think SOX18 is good is also because the HPF advance ballasts Ive been getting in have a bracket welded on the bottom which would make mounting it in this fixture simple, maybe just drill in two holes. Ballast would go near the edge in the back near the mains feed knockout. I would still make a cover to hide it all and make the light from the lamp reflect outwards like a real HID
