No, the 56w require a 56w ballast. The 28w ballast will either overload or not light up the higher watt bulbs.

Just like HID's, the ballasts are matched with the bulbs.

Would be nice if it worked though, eh?

Yep, yep. The lower watt ballast wouldn't light the high output bulbs. Ya gotta have the T5HO ballast. :)
