Wiring 4-Pin CFLs... Need Help


I am assembling a fixture that has six 4-pin CFLs. There will be a single on/off switch for the entire assembly. But I can't tell how to wire the lights.

The lamps use GX24Q-4 sockets. There are no markings on the fixtures and the supplier was no help. I even checked a couple of manufacturer's websites for [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]wiring [COLOR=blue !important]diagrams[/COLOR][/COLOR], but found no help.[/COLOR]

Can anyone help me on this?

The power does not get direct wired to the lamps. It goes to a ballast first. The ballast goes to the lamp socket and will have a drawing on it of how to connect it.
