Anybody know if a Hamilton magnetic ballast will run a 14k Ushio better than a Reefbrite electronic ballast? I am looking for more PAR / better spectrum over electricity/heat costs.

Thx!

I am in the process of building a 375g tank. I have decided to run MH with LED supplementation. Tank dimensions are 96" x 30" x 30". I will be using Lumen Bright SE Large Reflectors with Giesemann Megachrome Crystal 17,500K SE 400W bulbs. Can anyone recommend a good ballast for this combination. I know choices a slim theses days. With all the reading/research I have done, everything points to Hamilton, Luxcore or lumatek ballast. Are any of these better/best or is there something better?
