Building my first boat after 20 yrs of holding a q beam. Goin with 400 watt hps lights from econolite. Heard a lot of talk about building a remote ballast box but idk what I'm doin. Is there some diagram or do I just pull the gut out of the lights I order mount them in a box and run extention cord?

Basically its just putting the guts from your lights in a box to keep the weight off of the front of the boat. It isnt necessary for the econolight hps' to work, but if you want to keep weight down on the front, pay attention to how the guts are wired when you remove them, put them in your remote box and run the wires back to your lights, (strongly recommend going with 14 gauge wire at the minimum, 10 or 12 if you plan on running multiple lights on the same cord) Thats just a simple explanation.
