Currently running 2 viparspectra 600 in a 4x4x80 grow tent looking to upgrade to 2 HLG 260 how much would I gain in buying these and would my tent run cooler? Had hard time staying under 80 deg. with viparspectra’s and who would you buy from on sale I’m ready to pull the trigger thanks all
The difference is (wait for it) like Night and Day! Yes; your tent will be cooler, quieter, less expensive to run, higher yields etc.
Rightbud dot com has a killer deal going on right now if you are interested. @Not2SureYet ordered some today.
I see there are 2 listed one is xl what’s the difference in the 2?
Xl (xtra long) has a longer, 36” heat sink
Is it worth the extra money to go with the XL when buying 2 in a 4x4 tent? Thanks all!
Nah you can run a 260 reg just fine in a 4x4, I’ve got a few
I’ll bet right around a 10 deg difference, and the xl will keep it spread out nicely!
Gotta run the drivers on the outside of your grow tho.
18g 300v wire (red/black/green) 10 pk of triple slot wagos and same for double slot wagos.
That way you have enough to wire two drivers far outside your grow area
I just ordered the 288 QB V2 Rspec. Should be here in a week or 2 and can’t wait to replace the cobbled up lighting arrangement I have now.
I ordered mine from Growerslights, which has a similar deal.
@Cheeser, did you see this sale?
I ordered a 260w 100.00 off and 3 of the 135s I saved on too. I would personally spend the 15.00 extra for the XL for a 4x4 tent.
I switched to the HLG 260xl rspec kits x 2 for my 4x4x80” tent. Best thing I did.
I hear you. @Myfriendis410 built me a pair of these 260s I went with dual drivers on one and a single on the other. The dual lets me veg one plant if I want with out having to run the whole light. I am thinking of changing the single to a dual as well. These are four 65w panels. Good for 265w
I went with a longer set up for better coverage. I run one of these in the 4x4 or 2 in the 4x8 tent
Once again I’m your hand model haha.
You would have to order two drivers like you have on the one fixture and we can wire it up. I have wagos and wire.
Yep, I plan on that once we get past this year. I may seek your assistance for putting together the light coming in monday for @JrsGarden I know it was easy to do my 320. but my brain has not been to reliable lately
Lol nice hands @Myfriendis410
I’m sure between us there is one working brain lol. I’m around and you know where I live: I’m sure we can screw up spectacularly.
Let there be light haha!
Sorry couldn’t resist lol
I’m getting now, thanks @merlin44
