Great question!
The 4 bulb will have 2 power cords while the 6 will have 3. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Feb 10, 2016 5:54:00 PM
which bulbs do you recommend for your 6 bulb fixtures? I see you utilize phillips ballasts so is a certain brand better suited than another? Thank You.

Hi there,
When it comes to T5 fixtures and what lamps to put in them, a lot of it will come down to what do you like to see and what are you trying to grow. For almost all fixtures we do a mix of 2x ATI Blue Plus, 2x ATI Aquablue Specials, 1x ATI Coral Plus, and 1x ATI True Actinic lamps. We find that mixture produces a nice spectrum around 16-18k and allows for good growth of most corals.

Owners Manual

 

Depending on the number of lamps in the units, the power cords will be able to control different groups of lamps independently.  That allows you to set multiple timers or a controller to "ramp" the light up in the morning and down at night. The Matrixx II gives off a beautiful even light with 99.8% reflective reflectors that keep hot spots and shadows from forming and blending all the lamps into one cohesive color illumination.

With active and passive cooling technologies keeping your T5 lamps at the proper temperature for maximum par output and bulb life is taken care of by the Matrixx II fixtures. With a glass panel that seals off the top of the fixture acting as a giant heatsink, while keeping a beautiful aesthetic appeal. The Matrixx II units have a robust heavy duty extruded and formed aluminum alloy for the outer with hand assembly putting them all together. All parts are pre-painted before assembly to keep corrosion from forming and protect your investment.

Giesemann uses Phillips ballasts as they do understand for a slight bit more in ballast cost, the light output is much greater than the standard ballasts the industry uses.

  • Not for SPS By Mr.Salty on 2/13/2016

    As good looking as this fixture is. It really lacks in power. Hung at just 4 inches above the water it only puts out 350 par at center of fixture. All my sps are 6-8 inches below water level and the max par I'm getting is 240. I'm not sure if it is because of the Dimmable ballast but I wish I would have save a nice chunk of money and went with an ATI.
  • Best looking t-5 fixture out there. By Advanced on 11/4/2015

    I own the 48" MATRIXX II 6x54W for a while now and love it, It is built very solid. Mine has 3 ballast, one for every two lamps. The powder coating looks so much better than just bent aluminum. It is as good to look at as it performs. Best t-5 fixture out there right now.
