Welcome to the forum.

What is your definition of a "big" light bulb?  Give us an idea of physical size, shape, etc. and we can help.

right now I am thinking of using the base components from a grow light system to power a MH BT-56.

the bulb is over 100,000 lumens but is 15" high which we need for the presentation. will probably have to fabricate some kind of room size reflector/diffuser to control a lamp that large.
