Just put an Osram bulb in one of my old housings. I ordered the screws and ring terminals online. I used a ring terminal for a butt splice and some wire from another housing to extend the short wire, so I could keep the "Top" side of the bulb on the electrical connector side of the housing. ( for table mount. I am guessing that ceiling mount it would be better to have switchewd the "top" side away from teh electrical connector, but i have never heard about this with the standard bulbs. Maybe that is because you really just can't do it without cutting the wires and adding some more wire, so no one has bothered to do it?. )
I would not have needed to do extend the short wire, if I could have been sure that changing polarity would have been OK. I think that someone a few pages back switched the connectors, but I could not be sure, so I bet that I could make a good connection wit a splice rather than reverse polarity.
I cleaned the glass area. It looked the same before as after. From my microfiber cloth on the pencils, it looked like all the dirt came not from the glass, but from the plastic area around the glass. That was plenty dirty, as was the part of the housing that butted up against it.
Switched the bulb to low immediately after turning it on.
The thing I am happiest about is I do not see the green coloration to peoples faces, like I have when the pj was new, and after every bulb change.
Mine is an RS1, but I am discussing my experience with the Osram bulb install here, because this is where the discussion about the swap is.
Old bulb had 3310 hours on it. Looked fine on removal, and was doing OK when I took it out. It is still intact, and can be used as a spare.
Thanks to all who had posted on this.
Now I guess I just need to get Calman and put my Radiance to good use.
