I’ve only been growing for about a year and a half. Started with a mars hydro 300, upgraded to a Spectrum King 140W almost a year ago, and now i’m building a rig much like this custom HLG 550 for my 4x4 space.
I’m using 4x 288.2s from Atreum (they come with heatsinks) and a HLG 480 series driver B with a dimmer. I want to have them all running in series and i’m debating running the SK140 in conjunction.
There’s some guys on this thread with real knowledge and i’d love some opinions if anyone has time!
My big questions are:
How should I lay these out to cover my 4x4? - they’re actually square and slightly more efficient than the 288s from HLG so this may change things.
Should I run my SK140 in conjunction with these lights or would that be overkill? And if so, how should I design the frame to utilize the SK140 as well. (So far i’m working with 4x 4’ pieces of 1/8th" thick 3/4th" aluminium).
