Grow Tent Q
    #380778 - 03/09/10 07:37 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

Hello guys.. Im lookin at a 4x4 for my apt and was wondering if i stuck a 600w in there .. do i need the air cooled hood?

Also how much difference does a electronic ballast compared to a none electronic. is the electro alot more quiet?

YES you need an air cooled hood. if you dont your tent is gonna get hot as fuck. even with an air cooled hood my tent stays in the upper 70s to lower 80s depending on what part of the tent.

i have a sun system 400 watt electronic/digital ballast. absolutely no noise, no vibration, and very little heat.

fuck, it'll be hot no matter what time of year if he's not moving that hot air out.  I lived with my grow tent for a while and it suuuucked.

yah, see you have to remember that you moving hot air out of your grow room but if you don't have a way to cool the air temps build up.  Can you pony up the cash for a window ac unit?  The only other thing I can think of is just to run the ducting to an open window, this requires you to keep the window open (and it's fairly obvious), but if you live in a med state and are legal it shouldn't be too big of a deal.
