Lighting for my crown royal


#21

Will cobs penetrate the canapé better then strips ? I would want this light to be for flowering only
I would keep my other lights for veg , I would appreciate your help on this please @dbrn32


#22

To an extent, cobs are more focused light. I don’t feel like you would be disappointed either way.

47”x47” rules out using the 1120mm strips. Would probably make the most sense to do something like 2 or 4 separate lights. You could probably make a nice frame for strips out of that aluminum you have.


#23

Maybe just a few inches. I kept mine about 18" during vegg then in flower I lowered it over time to about 12" the 400w is a great vegg light. It’s peak is more blue, around 4000k? It combined with the two 300w 2nd generation ones I got some huge buds


#24

How much area would 4 of the 560 mm strip cover ? @dbrn32 would I still use my other lights

Monster bud nice !!! @HornHead Is the 2nd generation Roleadro better than the blurple Roleadro light ? How big was your tent (3) lights


#25

4 strips, not very much. The strips themselves are about $6.50 each. You would do something like 10 of them on a 150ish watt driver and fame them up to be a complete light. And then make something like 4 of those to do the complete tent.

You could certainly build one and use it with your current lights. If you liked it, you could build more as you go.

Here’s a couple of examples.


#26

I think they’re better. Light is more natural. 3 lights in a 20"x36" tent


#27

Hi, @dbrn32 can you give me a model number for the 560 strips and a driver that will run 10 strips or so and what ever you think I need to go with it
How big of an area will it do for flowering?
please & thanks

#29

What do you s think of this light to add to my flowering tent for side light @HornHead
@dbrn32 $ 4.00 each


#30

It’ll help some but imo I believe you’d be better off getting two cheap Amazon lights


#31

My girls seem to like my new light Roleadro 400w cob the leaves are pointing up under lt


#32

Was looking at 4.00 for 15.5 Watts is ( 3.875w per 1.00 ). 2700k is good for flowering
10 bulbs is $ 40.00 for 155w I can’t buy a cheap led on amazon for that price @HornHead


#33

Get you a roleadro 300w 2nd generation. Think they’re around $60. Or cruise Amazon, see what’s in your budget and I’ll look them up for you. Let you know if good or not


#34

You’re not taking into account the poor efficacy of the lighting. It’s s cheap solution though.

BXEB-L0560Z-30E2000-C-B3 That’s 3000k 560mm gen 2 eb. You didn’t state which color temp you wanted?

Meanwell hlg-120h-c700a will run 10 of those strips. Not the only option though.


#35

No, too many of the LED’s point sideways


#36

I purchase 10 of the bxeb-l0560z-35e2000-c-b3 3500k strip and 1 of hlg-120-c700a driver
My is my aluminum bars are 1/4 thick x6 1/4” wide x25”long
Should there be a space between strips
(. 5 strips per bar ) About 1/4” between strips ?
@dbrn32. What size of a foot print for this light
Thanks for the help everyone !!!


#37

Sure, a little space between them wouldn’t hurt. It’s probably better than having them all touching, although I often do them that way too.

Ideally that light would be like 4-6 square feet coverage for flowering.
