In a 5x5 area 1000 vs 2x 600

Does anyone have experiences using the two?

Everybody is gonna say the two 600s. I myself even think that makes the most sense buuuuut I switched my whole setup to 600s and ended up going back to the 1000s. I use 4x4 spaces for each one. Thing is with two 600s you end up with a the best area being the 3x6 foot area under the lights and scraggly stuff on the outer edges.

If I could have enough ventilation and AC cooling power In a 5x5 area would you recommend 2 1000 watt lights over two 600s? or is 1200 watts the max you want in a 5x5 area?

Hmmmm......hard call. The more light the merrier but it would be huge overkill.

Now as crazy as this sounds 4 400s would get you 1600watts in there. Each 400 is good for a 2.5 x 2.5 foot space. 4 of those would fit the space perfectly. :shrug:

Yeah Im pretty much limited to what I can stuff in a tent in a 5x5 and maybe now a 6x4 area.

I would like to make sure when I buy my equipment im not upgrading later down the line.

I will probably go with 2 600s but will think about 4 400s. I will still have 2 1000s in thought though just in case. Im not trying to go overkill but would like some really effective at the same time for the amount of space I have cause there will not be an option for more space.

Well if you want to go 2 1000s that isn't going to do you any wrong. I'd do that before the 2 600s.

So Im thinking as a final design I will probably go with a 8x4 or maybe a smaller 6x4 tent.

I will probably go with 2 1000s but also again I might go with the smaller 600s if I do the 6x4.

Do you have any experience using ACs with any of your grows? I have a window unit 5000BTU I could rig up wondering if they would be good for those two 1000 watters?

Also one last question. How many amounts of air exchange do I want per minute or per hour? Wanting to know when sizeing the inline fan.

Well a 4x8 is perfect for 2 1000s. I did this with 4x8 and 2 1000s




I don't use AC with my grows. Never needed it with the air cooled lights.

Super nice grow man. How many plants did you have in one area?

Yeah I was going to invest in reflectors with cool tubes to get rid of as much heat as I can. Would you say having cooled lights cuts back on most of the heat?

how big was your inline fan for that room?

Those were 4 per sq foot but you can do a bunch of these if you want to keep the numbers down.

Yeah in my case it did anyway. But if heat is a major worry check out these

Looks like a cool tube but is water cooled. These remove all noticeable heat.

I used a 8in fan for that room. There was more in there then those plants.

4 Per Sq.Ft? wow that's a lot. What strain did you use and did you get a better yield then if you would have done less, bigger plants?

Wow! Those light cooling tubes are amazing. I checked out their website and some of their youtube videos and it is the first time I am seeing this.

I would definitely like to try and buy those. But It would cost me over $1300 bucks just in lighting to use those plus more electricity because of the pump, and water chiller.

Did you use a water chiller with those? How hot was your room getting with those going and 2 1000 watt lights in them? How big was your reservoir for those light tubes?

Also what temp does your room really sit at while during a grow?

How many CFMs were your inline fans exchanging every hour/minute?

Could be better. I give it a 2 out of 10.

Has anyone that uses these forms ever posted using the Fresca Sol Water Cooled lights before?

Would love to experiences from people using these vs air cooled as far as plant performance goes.
