This is an update to a question brought up in this previous thread
I found this new bulb but was listed as incandecsent and what I recieved is infrared clear. It is basically a heat lamp for a bathroom or something It is a 250watt BR40 and as you know the colossus calls for a 200watt. So my question is;what effect do you think this type of bulb will have. Will the inrared clear fade it out? how would I find out the operating temps of the two bulbs.? the bulb actually sits about three inches down in the base.
I am trying to compare the two bulbs. This is the replacement I found
They hold up to like 600 watts or something
These may work if you use a lower setting on the dimmer switch and you have the base which carries a br40 bulb...
