Vero 29 or a Cree COB are both great options. @Jon051410

No problem! Are you looking for seed to flower? And what’s your budget?

You could do 4 vero 29 on hlg-320 driver. The vero 29 is available in 3 different voltage formats, b,c, and d. So like 36v, 50v, and 70v. If I were looking I’d see what had best price in something like the b or c in maybe 3500k 90cri. Once we know exact cob module you’re looking at we can find driver number. You’ll also want to note whether it’s se model or not. The se has poke in connectors, non-se models you would need the harness for as well. When I start shopping I typically pull up the data sheets for cobs I’m looking at, then copy and paste part numbers into search bar.

Before you start buying anything though, you should look around more. See what prices you find compare to. Cobkits may be a good place to check too. The luminous cxm-22 is a great cob for $20. Make sure you can get fair price on compatible pin sinks and everything needed to get it together.

@dbrn32 say i go with those what driver should i use an what would be a good heatsink an should i do a line or square when mounting them

@dbrn32 @Covertgrower do u think a hlg 240 12a is that a good driver or it not powerful enough

That’s a 12v constant voltage driver, won’t run cxm-22.

You’ll want something like large pin heatsink for the cobs. If you order from cobkits he has 133mm I think. I believe rapid led has 140mm that is pre drilled and tapped for cxm-22 too.

Ok i was searching around and found on offer up thought i found a steal lol
