You're right, I had another look after I got home tonight and it seems
perfectly normal light. But, I'm human...
Fulham recommended the 5 and 7, like you said. You know your ballasts
well! But! There is no option 2x65W from their ballast finder. So I
used some simple things to select the 6...the fact that its 140W output
had me, then I looked up the wiring diagram and figured out that it
wouldn't be dangerous to use that with 2x65W...in fact, theres no 65W on
that list. So I didn't know what to do, but this is working. Would
there be something wrong with using the 6 vs the 5 or 7? I can still
turn back with one of them. I'll take the loss if its dangerous...
