Yes, there is a coupkle things that can be going on here... either the bulb is to many wat rating for the system that supplies voltage to it, and the connector is messing it up... OR, when you change the bulb, you are touching the glass with your hands.

Touching the glass is a big nono, the oil in your fingers gets on the glass, and damages the bulb, it can (and usually does) severely shorten the life of the bulb, to where it lasts less than a month. So try wearing a pair of gloves next time you change tyhe bulbs..

If they are getting power and the system is not shorted out.. then that is the only 2 possibilities.
