  1. Hi friends, I have a simple question. Can a 600w HPS be used in a tent? And if so, what size tent would you recommend? I've been growing in a closet with poor air circulation and ventilation, and I have had enough. I'm browsing amazon for a good tent but I'm unsure what size would accomodate a 600w HPS. I have about 600 to spend right now towards a tent and vent system. I already have the light. Thanks in advance.
     
  2. 4x4 be perfect 600w..I run 2 600w hps in a 8x4x7 tent with 6" rvk l1 extactor fan and another 6" for intake. You be good with a 4x4x7 tent for 1 600w hps

  3. I run 3 600s in a 4x7.5 tent. Seems to be working great.

    600s get very hot! Do not skip on the ventilation.

  4. I definitely will not skip the ventilation, I'm just unsure on exactly what is needed to complete a vent system with a basic 4x4x8 tent. I Still have some researching to do, I just dont want to use LED, I'd much rather use my HPS.
     
  5. you can get a kit from amazon for about $150 that has a good fan and huge filter.

  6. I see the kit you're talking about, but wouldnt I need to purchase another fan to extract air?
     
  7. Get a 6 inch duct fan for intake. They go for about 20$ and then use a 6 inch inline fan for exhaust.

    Duct fan should be about 240cfm and inline fan will be about 440 cfm giving you neg pressure in the tent.

  8. no thats the kit I use. Hook up ducting to the filter, out of the tent to your fan, then from your fan out.

  9. A 3x3 tent might be more efficient, I run 1k in a 4x4 and thats generally what's recommended. I recommend a passive intake as well, that is no fan just hole for air to be sucked through.
