Let's talk DIY lights


#5096

Can only get the 4k spectrum in them in the 4 pack off Amazon i really want to stay 3k or 3500
Although price wise it would cut costs


#5097

Can you guys get qb 120’s up there?

Using the eb’s I would drop current down to 700ma. And the 560mm length go back to planning on 4 fixtures. 4- hlg-120h-c700a with 10 strips each.


#5098

Ok sounds good let me see if I can find drivers


#5100

Can’t buy those in canada the same way. The us site has better deals but price doubles when import duties are added it sux but I gotta live with it for now until we get a reasonable president in office and a Canadian prime minister with some gonads to stand up. Products made in the states simply cost too much to import now to make them competitive in the marketplace especially when for 850 I can buy all the above components to build 5 complete lights and be reasonably comparable

Hlgs Canadian offers

What is Trump doing to raise price of electronics sent from US to Canada?


#5103

Trump added a duty to canadian Metals products long ago and in response our talking head added a matching duty coming the other way in effect doubles our cost to buy products after we ship the material to the states to be built

Ahh, I see. Those pcb’s come from China and we pay tariff on them. You can order direct if you don’t mind paying shipping.
