Best 4x4 LED for 2020 under $1,000?!

  1. Hello,

    I had great success with my first 2x4 grow using a MarsHydro SP250(Now discontinued). I'm now looking at the MarsHydro TS300, SpiderFarmer, SF4000, and HLG 550 to name a few. I'll be growing autoflowers in a 4x4 in 5 gallon pots.

  3. Got the HLG 550 on sale in feb. 1 crop in and was amazed. in a 4x4. Dimming is great, didn't hit max power until into flower.

  4. Buy 4 qb96’s and build a frame for your 4x4, the footprint of a qb96 is 2x2 for flower

  5. HLG 550 is what I'd do. But I may be biased as I love my HLG 650R lol

  6. Would the 650R be too much for a 4x4 tent?
     
  7. Nope, I'd put one in a 4x4 in a heartbeat. I have mine in a 5x5 but I use some supplemental lighting in the corners when the plants get too close to the light as they start to shade out the corners a little.

  8. Zero issues with heat in a 5x5? Nice. Now I have another light to contemplate. Ugh..
     
  9. I’m getting the hlg 600w kit as soon as it’s back in stock... I’m tired of hps and the electric bill.

  10. Thanks for the feedback ladies and gents. I am now contemplating the HLG 650R. Waiting on a reply back from their customer support.

    Helllo,
    This light is similar to the 650r.
    Slim 600H Dimmable LED Grow Light 600w (120 Degree) 3500k
    slightly more energy efficient and allows the grower to put the light closer to the canopy, giving the grower more head space.
    Personally, I think they’re both expensive at the moment.

  13. You’re welcome,
    It’s a lil expensive, (like I said) but it has a master controller option allow which can be attributed to the added price.
    I use their Optic 1 for veg. They kick ass. Got two of them.
    Best of luck with whichever light you choose.

  14. I ordered the Optic Slim 600H with the light controller. Called their commercial grow number and got a nice discount code over the phone. The controller allows you to program the light for sunrise and sunset which I thought was pretty neat. Anything to mimic mother nature helps!
