Hi, Is 2500 watts too much for 4' X 4' space?
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
complete overkill if your talking mh/hps
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
better keep em SHORTTT lol
I run 75% on my 1000 dimmable they just get too tall for the full 1000
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.
I bet 5 bucks he's using a bunch of shit blurple lights that are actually 90 watts each.
If you read back he eventually came out with details
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?
TacoMac this my LED. Good? Bad?
They sure have come down in price.
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.
That light only uses 132 watts
Actual Power Consumption: 132w±5%
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.
