    Whats up guy I am currently putting together this room it is a 8x8 room I can make it 10x10 if I wanted. Money is an issue so Ihave a budget. I curently have 1 1000w lumatek and 1 1000w hortilux hps and 1 MH bulbs. I havn't decided on what hood to get I was looking at the parabolin 48" vertical and then put a 6 ft light rail up would this work? would it be better for me to use the one light with the rail or should I maybe just go with the 2 1000w setups? I also thought of 4 600W I am only working with 1500 bucks for ballast, bulbs, rails etc. I currently already have several 8" can fans, ducting light timers, and I do have a melon hood from last grow but wasnt sure if that wood be the best hood to use for a grow like this. I am just looking for the best way I can set it up to produce the best Harvest. this will be my third grow but def. my biggest. any suggestions would help thanks.

    I would nix the light mover and get a magnum xxxl for the 2 - 1000 watters.

    I have exactly this setup.. the 6 ft rail is a killer... i can run my hood like 3-5 inches from the tops i done even have to run a/c.. i still leave a walkway around so my real (growing) area is actually like 6x6 in a 8x8 room im growin out 25 larry og (clone) now...

    I tried to run 2k in there but it got waaay too hot so i nixedthat as it sits the 8x8 has
    265 cfm in ON 24/7
    6"VORTEX ON MED MOSTLY
    1K SUN SYSTEM 2 6" HOOD
    SWITHCHABLE PHANTOM BALLAST
    6 FT RAIL MY FAVORITE INVENTION IN THE WORLD

    remember... plants like lumens and not heat the closer you get the light the more they use it... the rail keeps the canopy flat too (like a scrog with no screen) thats what my 6x6 looks like maybe ill upload A COUPLE pics of my imaginary garden..;-)

    This is what I was thinking I just buying the magnum xxxl hood and use that 6 ft rail.
    I was thinking of useing 8x8 of the room with about 20 or so plants the room is actually 10x10 but with the one light and the light mover I was wondering if I could pull a nice yield, or would it be worth my time to get more light. and drop the rail.

    the rail and magnum will give you a great spread and think they wil perform better under the 1k + rail due to less heat stress. for me(can).. you can definitely do 20... but keep in mind u dont want the canopy too deep so i am LST' them to fill space the n flip aftter i see no mo dirt.. personally i would do more than 20 if permitted .. and next run ill have 30- 40 under my 6x6 1 gal grow bags on top of 2 gal grow bags and veg for 2-3 weeks (doublepotted )

    i was thinking of dividing mine int two rooms... hindsight is 20/20.. in retrospect i might have gone with a 400 watt veg and 600x2 cooled for flowering.. but to hell with it i have the gear now tryn stop me i just raise my 1k up of them for tahe first weeek or so to get them used to their new apartments.. =)
