    idk.. I have a pair of 70 watters in my cab ( 30 x 12 x 30 lwh in inches )... and its HARD to keep temps. down... lowest I hit with light on is about 80F.. and thats after a watering ,, avarage is 81...82 tops....and thats with a 6 in. blade fan outtake, two (soon 3) 4 in. passive intakes AND two 4 in. blade fans circulating air in the cab...


    EDIT: After doing some converting I DO NOT recommend such strong light... 20.6 x 20.6 x 35.4 in inches... nevermind burning your plants.. You'll probably burn your house down!!
    Look into cfl's

  4. lol that is what i thought so glad i checkd with you guys!!iv just finishd a grow with 125w cfl in a powerplant reflector yielded 41 g dry off an auto so i may just buy a 250w cfl n see how that goes,thanks for the replys!
  5. what du guys think about a 150w digital hps with proper ventaltion? only place i can get one is the local hydro shop and he wants £130 and i can get a 250w digital cool tube for the same price online!
