Been real Busy sorting this carpet & grow rooms out.

been costly had to buy two in silenced line fan kits there good mind there supposed to be calibrated to the calibrated the exhaust fans that come with the kit. 

my veg tent is fine 

my flowering tent is to hot 🥵 

was 82% & that in the winter 

atm I’ve two 300w led 

I was thinking I will buy a 600w & hopefully that will be cool enough however I don’t know & I have a offer to buy a 475 led from a friend.

obviously I can check how hot it runs before I buy or do a swap however how many plants can you  run under a 475w 

I was looking at doing six will 475w be good enough

Yeah bud.

The 475w he’s bringing round t/m 

Must admit I’m gutted them lumatek lights are good lights & swapping them for a 475 makes me ☹️

Guess I’ll have to see myself tomorrow 

I was wondering about adding a 90w to the 475w think the best thing to do is see how hot it runs tomorrow & how much it lights up my space.

least I don’t have to make my mind up before I test the 475w 

just wanted a opinion on the six plants thing ie is 475w enough light to run six

@mix It does take some effort but have you considered modifying the lights so that the driver is outside the tent. That will definitely lower the temps.

Good idea however it’s a sealed unit no screws you can get to without breaking the metal box 

 I know where your coming from though as some of the 600w you can do that with.

Try a different way how much area does a 475w cover 

Someone said off cuff it would cover 3.5 ft

@mix just looked at that light profile, yer that minimal design really limits the flexibility of the unit. It also guarantees you'll buy replacement parts from them.

I will have to give it to them they do give you a 5 year guarantee witch ain’t bad 

the 200 & 300 are sealed 

the 475 upwards are different there bar type lights witch you can do what you suggested with 

I think tbh they make the unit basic to keep the price down but not at the cost of power it puts out & they didn’t skim on the drivers as they can be dimmed 20/40/60/80% it’s just the way it’s made I think helps keep the price down.

i honestly can’t fault them bud for the price they cost they do a good job that & the 5year anything goes wrong Guarantee is a bonus as most will only do 2 years 

still I get where your coming from & I am new to the led market so I don’t know it all in fact I know very little about leds 

one thing one of my friends said he wouldn’t complain about 82f aka 27.8c 

my max I would have mine is 80f aka 26.7c 

Either way that’s 82f during the winter ain’t good I think esp as I have to factor in sumner

My friend brought round the 465w 

it’s a lumteck witch I didn’t expect I thought he’d have a 

it’s a lot bigger than I expected & is one of the normal bar type where you can remove the drivers

looks good in my tent lights up 1/2 of it witch is good enough with the tent being 7.5feet long.

the 2x 300 covered about the same space so am chuffed.

he also laid down the new carpet I got witch is awesome 

My new tower fan came it’s the dogs nutz so quite & has a 2 year Guarantee. Best one I’ve had so quite & powerful mind it outa be it cost enough.

seems like the grow rooms as good as sorted he’s coming back to put the drivers outside the tent so I won’t have no heat problems during the summer. 

about to pop some beans 😋
