Evening ppl I'm looking for some help I'm new to all this I bought a complete set up and it came with a 5inch exhaust fan but the fan didnt seem like it was up to the job as it was not getting he hot air out and the temp was way to high so I borrows a 10inch box fan from a mate and it has sorted it out the only problem is he now needs it back and I ant sure wat fan I need the tent is 4ft by 4ft by 6ft

I have a 4" RVK on the same size tent as yours, works fine, sucks tent sides in on 3/4 power so easily enough 😉

Quality fans too, mine are at least 5 years old and still going strong

Your tent is 2.5m3 and you want at least 10 x this per hour so anything over 250m3/hr will be sufficient, if as a lot of growers do, you get a bigger tent, you will need a bigger fan so if your budget can take it, get a bigger throughput, something like 450m3/ph or more, then you can use speed control to get it spot on.

Will run quieter and will also extend the life of the fan 😉

Get yourself an AC Infinity 6 or 8 inch exhaust fan, go for the S line over the T line and buy the controller 67 separately ( unless they have upgraded the T line by now.

What temps are you getting? What lights? Passive intake?
