    Hi Guys,

    I'm thinking of changing my MH bulbs and was wondering what the best kelving rating bulbs would be.

    How would 2 X 14K BLV on either side with a 20K Venture look?I know the 14K BLV bulbs are quite yellow so was thinking off off-setting it with the 20k venture bulb in the centre.

    Or should I just get 20K BLV bulbs?:whistling:

    Thanks

    Andreas - the 14000K BLV globes are not yellow at all. They are a crisp white. BUT, if you have a 20000K globe in the centre, with the lighting overlapping, it would look super cool!
