You absolutely can save cash money with DIY.
DIY half cost of Timber light easy....
Thanks @Dave455 , @hillbill
Do you guys have links for me to browse? I tried amazon but the 3590's looked about $90 each so thats why it looked the same cost as the timbers after it was all said an done.
Is it reasonable to mount the cobs to plywood? Im thinking i could cut a piece to fit where the glass goes in my xxl hood an cool them exactly how i do the reg hps. Im assuming that would allow for smaller heat sinks and no extra fans an would shave a few % off the cost of the build.
Hmmm... maybe I should update this post.... been a while.
Pics Or It Didnt Happen
Are dick pics still a thing?
Long Time No Speakie. So Brother Where Ya Been?

Hey You Ever Run Into Green Santa The Grower Formally Known As EnduroXxx ?
130 watts of XGS190 on veg duty right here still.
I was going through some OOOOLLLLD posts the other day, and saw his name come up... havne't heard from him in ages though.
We did a seed exchange back in the day, really nice guy!
SGS panel? Nope, I have some old Blackstars, a Pro-grow 180, a 439W Area 51, and some riff raff.... lol
Here's some cob / spyder for ya
Perrty coool! Liking the lenses.
So, what's the "premium" LED company these days? I feel like I'm so far behind now LOL
https://horticulturelightinggroup.com/ the best as far as I am concerned.
Yo beef, long time no see.......... nothing's, changed, leds still suck; )
Mars Hydro of course.
Amare, HLG, FluenceBio, SpectrumKing has some new stuff, Timber, Chilled (I think, haven't seen much results) SunCloak, PLC & there's a bunch of companies that make knock offs of each of these. Some using quality components but mostly allot of false claims, tailight warranties, & 1.5+ gpw promises.
Most companies are starting to incorporate color enhancement to their whites. They just couldn't deny results forever. Others are going the 90CRI route instead. All Premium comp. are shooting for 2+ umol/j. Not all have obtained it but are trying.
It's a good time to get back into led.
Welcome back! Hell of a thread you started here.
I still have an Area-51 panel from waaaay back.... probably going to use it as my primary until I decide to pull the trigger on a new toy.... It barely has any whites. Believe it was 439W.....
Interesting that most companies are using primarily white now, I kind of figured it would go that way.
EDIT: Thanks, Hybrid! I believe I had the first post in the new LED section.... if it wasn't THE first... it was damn close... LOL
So i live in ontario canada.....eh....And I seen a post on red tits about a company in Ottawa 4alight.com..that sold diy led kits,parts etc.Anyways I wanted too purchase a small order 4 cmx22 and holders.....thought before I place the order I would contact them....no phone # only an email emai....I have sent 2 emails in the last 3 days and got Nothing back...so wtf......has anyone here had any experience with them?
In all seriousness, this thread and a couple others started me down the LED path. My deepest gratitude to Beef and other old hands.
Agreed with @hillbill 100%.
Separate names with a comma.
