    Need recommendations on a de 1000watt that will not produce rfi. Will be lighting a 5x5 tent. Also looking for the best fans to use in tents, wall fans are a bit hard to use but workable, just wondering if a better solution is availible.

    There are a few threads on it here. I would do a search option and start from there.

    radio frequency interference, its produced by electronic ballasts and other digital devices. I recently had a 200 watt digi knock out the people next doors internet, comfirmed by cable guy. I live in a shitty town... just dont want the block to hate me. My last run with my old magnetics was a letdown.

    I can’t help ya with that , I’m not techy
    I do run DE1000s tho, and would not recommend having them closer then 36” to the canopy . They require a lot of cooling
    A 750cfm fan will not cut it .
    If you can’t control the heat theses things put out you’ll be very disappointed in your yeild .
    I really like 315cmh , but they throw a 3x3 max foot print
    I would probably go with a double bulb 315 with a wide angle reflector in your case , you’ll have an easier time maintaining the environment and this will boost your yeild .

    You're not going to not produce rfi short of a faraday cage

    Really not on topic, or correct. There are fec complient ballasts... if you dont know please just dont bother.

    Fcc compliant ballasts still produce rfi. They are just so minimal it doesn't interfere with anything. Buy an FCC approved ballast then.

    Lets assume i can control the heat, do you know of any that are for sure fec complient or that are not for that matter? I know most of this stuff is from china and they dont really care, an why should they, its not a problem most places. Unfortunatly i just happen to live in a town with poor cable lines. I can stick to the magnetics, but i need better light pen.

    At the least in the winter its so cold here there no way it could be too hot to run. I did a sealed room last winter with zero cooling and it was still almost too cold. Easily gets below zero in winter an the coldest it got was -20. Feet of snow. I dont need to run in the smer with this, i can do my air cooled magnetics in the summer. But im good at moving air id like to think i could cool it in a tent, those are easier tham rooms in a lot of ways honestly..
