Opinions on this Light

  1. If you have a smaller space your better off going with a seperate ballast and light to keep temps in check.

    Something like this if your on a budget, but upgrade to a cool tube or vented reflector. $165 + reflector upgrade

    or spend a little more and get this digital ballast, $230 +reflector upgrade

    you will also need to get a 6" fan
     
  2. What is the purpose of the Cool Tube?
     
  3. Yeah, you want a remote ballast.

    Cool tube is a separate ventilation path that draws cool air into the sealed reflector hood and out the exhaust, taking the heat from the lamp out with it.
     
  4. It allows air from out side of the grow space, or even inside it, to be used to cool the heat generated by the light, This allows you to place the light closer to the canopy and use your lumens more efficiently
     
  5. Do I need to hook up a fan or does this do it on its own as a stand alone reflector
     
  6. You will need to get a 6" fan
     
  7. where can i get one of those

    Sorry newbie to inside growingb
     
  8. no problem

    plantlightinghydroponics.com has the best prices I've seen on fans

    I'd send a link but looks like their sites not working at the moment.

    go to ventilation

    the valuline 6" fan is a great deal
     
  9. Thanks NewGrow
