cool tubes or full reflectors?

  1. ive used regular reflectors before but am switching to a sealed system and was wondering if a few cool tubes would cover the same area well. being that they are way cheaper and i could save a few bucks. i am a big fan of "you get what you pay for" so this is a factor for me.

    can you change my mind?
  2. It's true that a good sealed hood will do a better job than a cool tube of reflecting well to a larger footprint. So it depends on how well-matched you have the light with the grow footprint. For example, I'm fine with a cool tube for my 400w in my 4-plant grow, but if I had the space for 6 I probably would have gotten a sealed hood.
  3. yeah im using 1000w lights. they didnt look like they spread well
  4. i would go with the sealed hood. they are badass.
