Riggs, if youre planning on going with a other light anyways, try opening the hood like I did with the hood I have. It's the same hood and I get much better spread and cooler temps now instead of the hotspot directly underneath. My Grandaddy purples are going nuts into flower further than I thought. I only get to see them in person once a week because of work schedule. I usually spend all week watching them through wireless cameras in the tent.
