    You dont say what size lights you have, but in any event, thats about 8 plants per light. (Assuming the 48 plants mentioned) Set aside some space for a mother, and keep the clones coming and you'll be self suffucient. The mother dosent need much space, maybe a shelf on the wall for her and for the clones you'll be making.
    48 plants is alot, and obviously your in this for profit, I am not too farmaliar with your strain, but I did look it up where I buy seeds and theres many different strains of kush, with varying flower times from 7 weeks to 10 weeks, based on what I read.
    You want a short flowering cycle, and grow sog style, when your grow is about 2 weeks from finishing, you want to be readying your next clones from your mother(s), you may want 2 mothers in fact.
    You could end up harvesting 48 oz's every 6 or 7 weeks this way.

    I would use both. Either both as exhausts, or one to blow in fresh air and the other to exhaust the warm, stale air.

    I think you want a passive system, meaining both fans on exhaust, which will create a vacuum of sorts, so long as there is new air available from somewhere, a series of drilled holes, another room, a window or whatever.
