My main concern is my faulty In-Line fan.. should I just get a replacement 6" in-line fan to match my all 6" install, or should I upgrade to an all 8" install, I need to know if an 8" install will both cool my cab better ? and will the 8" install be any quieter whilst its running ??
I think the 8" setup WILL cool the cab better, even though its the more expensive option.. But as far as noise goes I dont know what will be quieter.. I figure if the 8" In-line fan was to run slower it should clear the same heat as the 6" install... noise is my main concern though - STELTHY
Oh, didn't know you were in the UK. I will look around for something for you and get back to you.
Wow, the Variacs are really a lot different in the UK than here in the States. This is the closest thing I can find to a US version. It at a place called Claude Lyons in London: UK Variac. Let me know if you have any more questions. Good luck.
Im sorry I have nothing valueable to lend to your question.
But do I see a video camera peeking in on your grow box with the monitor on the top (so you can see in at all times w/o opening the door). And some tweeters mounted on the top for tunes?
Do you have a thread or pictures from when you built that setup. Thats perfect to me.
hope that helps - STELTHY
Is it worth the cost? Your call, for me it's all a balance.
EDIT: I had a closer look at your cabinet. Stay with the 6", you don't really have the space for 8".

Ok, I just went to my local Hydro store, and told them of my faulty in-line fan, they were very helpful and sorted me out a new in-line fan, a couple of reducers and a speed controller I walked away with an 8" Systemair In-line fan (720 CFM) !!! and best of all cos I had no cash on me they let me have it now and have given me a couple of weeks or so to pay for it all happy days !!!.. I wont install it today, as my lights are about to come on, so I have turned my AC on full for tonight, the in the morning when the lights go off I'll get busy with the new installation, I dare say different bits and pieces will need modifying but thats to be expected lol
So I have decided to stick with my whole 6" setup, but have replaced my 6" 400 CFM Prima Clima in-line fan for an 8" 720 CFM Systemair in-line fan with enlargers/reducers, once its all installed I'll play around with the speed controller and configure it to say 3 different temp setting so I know how far to turn the dial in different weather situations etc...
I'll post some more pics once its installed, and let y'all know how well it works with the rest of my setup - STELTHY
