    could be either, try changing the bulbs and ballasts round til you work out which one is shagged.

    i think they are 6000k, not sure on the "W" i have a feeling they maybe 33/35W i believe the higher the colour temp it reduces the output?? may try buying some 4300 bulbs and see what happens lol
