Sounds good, remember it's always more efficient to pull rather than push the air through your carbon filter.  Are you going to put an air intake at the bottom??

Now that you say that yes I am lol. So I should just hook my fan up after my carbon filter then?

you can't have the carbon filter in the cab if you're blowing air through it. you can blow through it if it's outside the box, or pull through it if it's inside

Sure if you can keep a nice negative pressure going.  I think that a little smell is always going to leak through, but a carbon filter will scrub your exhaust and greatly reduce any odors you may have.

If I were you I'd hook up the carbon filter on one end of your light so you can vent the hot air it produces as well.  Unless you're running an A/C in your cab things are going to get hot in there.

Yea I'm not gonna run an A/C, I dont think I will be able to hook my filter up to my light because I'm going with a cheap reflector and it doesnt have the port on it.

how cheap is cheap?  Somehow I think that's one decision I think you're going to regret.  Have you ever run a HPS light before?  They'll turn a small cabinet into a sauna in about 5 minutes.

Not sure yet. I'm trying not to make this really expensive. But it seems thats the only way to do things. I'm thinking about a 4" fan but I know I should go with a 6".

What's the room size?

Best to start there, when it comes to fans.

I'm running a 400 watt light in a room 2x3x5 with 190 cfm fan and it stays about 75 degree 6 inches off the bulb itself.

The fan I use is a inline 4 inch.

It's also gonna make a big difference where your intake and exhaust actually are in relation to the rest of the space.

Are you gonna exhaust into the attic or outside or anything?  Intake could be better suited to the lower portion of the cab too where the air is going to be cooler in your house/room whatever.

I'm running a 171 CFM through a DIY scrubber in my 2X2X3.5 cab.  Exhaust and intake recirculate in a 5X5 closet.  My temps reach about 83 under the bulb



You have any pics or thread of your setup stoney?

I think I'm getting a 250 CFM fan, Says that it only costs like 9 cents a day to run 24/7. I'm thinking I'm also gonna get a cool tube.
