    Yes. Fire! the cabling might not be up to twice the current draw of a 50w bulb!

    Won't the lighting circuit be fuse protected somewhere so the fuse would blow before any damage occurs to the wiring,not doubting you just asking

    Maybe. So the fuse would have to be uprated for the bulbs to even come on meaning too much current draw might occur
