    i have 4 Metal Halide HIE 250 watt E40 3700 Kelvin lights would i be able to connect them up all to one 1kw ballast if so in series or parellel ?
    or would i have to buy 4 individual 250 watt ballasts and connect them seperately
    much appreciated

    get a ballast for each one :) the only way. Where did you get those bulbs from? The will be extremely yellow as Kelvin rating is very low.
