    cool, do your end caps get hot?
    also, do you use other lighting than 4 VHO's?

    No other lighting than VHO
    end caps are warm, but not as hot as lamps!

    I have mine wired almost the same way. Of the four red wires coming off the ballast, one is capped off and the other three are joined together.

    Would the light be brighter if all four wires were together?

    To be honest, I don't know. All I can suggest is try it and see.

    I've been using this setup but with 3 red wires and a bridge at the end(blue wires)... one to each post... seems to work great.
