Power into the ballast. Out of the ballast and into the tube. Out of the adjacent pin on the tube and into the starter. Out of the starter and into the other end of the tube. Out of the adjacent pin on the tube and into the second tube. Out of the adjacent pin on the second tube and into the second starter. Out of the second starter and into the other end of the second tube. Out of the adjacent pin on the tube and connect to neutral.

The capacitor connects across the active and neutral.
