    Hi, Is 2500 watts too much for 4' X 4' space?

    Thanks.

    What kinda light? Cfls? I'd say no. Hps i'd say definitely unless you're roofing your ballasts. Even then i'd say that simply a waste of power. -opinion of a nubbie noob

    I have never heard of it.
    No idea what kind of lights you are talking about but with 2000w hps
    I flower a 9x6 footprint in about a 12x12 room.
    Requires air conditioning.

    No idea how big your space really is but in my very humble opinion.

    I can't imagine you needing all that

    1000 watts of HPS is perfect for a 4x4 space. 650 watts of COB LED for a 4x4

    if you really want to kill it in a 4 X 4, i'd go with 2 600 watt hps....one could do it, but two, with proper cooling, will give you damn good coverage, and the most efficient use of power. 2 600s produce more light per watt than 1 1k

    Right now I have 3, 300 watt LEDs. I have cob 1600 I may add but that will generate a lot of heat. Not sure if it's hotter than 2 600w hps though?

    My height range is 4.5' expandable to 6.6'

    In veg. Temp ranging 75° - 80°

    I have a supplemental heater which is a total waste of energy when I could be getting the heat from the lights.

    I run my exhaust fan a total of 9 hours a day.

    heat is based on amount of watts used, 1 watt = 3.41 btu

    More like 750-800w for COB LED realistically.

    I run one 600hps in a 4x5. 2500 sounds like a lot for that space. Good luck cooling it.

    300 watt LED's aren't details.

    The Mars Hydro is a "300 watt LED" that sells for 69 dollars and is actually only 120 watts. Some are even worse than that.

    They also sell a "1600 watt COB" that is actually only 550 watts.

    That's my point.

    Are you saying that one 600w HPS will throw the same amount of heat as 2 300w leds?

    Does hps screw with your eyesight like the LEDs do?

    Doesn't hps run super hot like a halogen bulb?

    Seems like almost Everyone likes HPS.

    It's shit. It's a 130 watt fixture not really good enough to do a single plant to it's maximum potential.

    A single 600 watt HPS would blow away every light you have combined.
