1000w globe in nova shade?

Recommended Posts

hi all,

wondering if a 1000w bulb can be used in a nova shade .... i bought a secondhand 1000w bulb, ballast and the shade which is a "chinamans hat" as they guy called it but it kinda sux lol

the bulb can only face downwards giving me alot less height and would prefer it going length ways.

can i use a nova shade (i have one from my 400w) or what sort of shade can i use ?


thnx :rolleyes:

Nah u cant use a 1000 watt light in a 400 watt nova shadethe heat buildup may cause an electrical fault or something similar....you can use a 400 watt light in a 1000 watt shade but not the reverse....


you can get 1000 watt nova shades...you can get a second hand batwing for the bulb...


Hope this helps...
