Lighting for 4x2x4 tent

  1. I'm considering 2 different lighting options for a 4x2x4 tent. First, a standard 400 watt HPS. Second, a 4-bulb 4-foot TT-105 (420 watts total) flourescent. I plan on using 4-inch in-line fans for ventilation. Which lighting setup would be best for this tent? Would the 400w HPS be too much for this area? Heat is probably my main concern.

    Thanks in advance, folks.
  2. If you make a cool tube with a Dryer vent you will ve able to do this idea, and heat will nto be an issue, unless your outside ambient is more than 76 or so degrees.

    A floro would be a lot less heat and require less work and ventilation, but yield a lot less than the 400
  3. A cool tube? Please explain. Thanks for the input.
