CFL AND DIRECT BOX QUESTION(s)? Answered
This is a multi part question.
1. What normally fails on a CFL bulb?
2. If I scrap a good used transformer from a CFL will it work to build a direct box?
I know it is pretty easy to buy a Jensen Trans or other brand new trans for a DI box but how many dead CFL bulbs do you see waiting to be reused or recycled? I would really like to reuse the tranny if possible.
My understanding is that heat is causing a great number of the premature deaths in CFL bulbs.
