need input with putting together a new grow/flower room
    #736844 - 06/19/14 09:03 PM (2 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all im working with a room that is 11feet4inch wide. 6Feet 7inch deep and 7feet 8inch high. Now im not sure if i should use two 1000 watt in the really big raptor hoods or 4 600watt in normal size hoods.

From what i looked at the breaker box i dont think ill be able to run more then that with out tripping to breaker box from trying to draw to much

Now if i did my math right i figured the rooms cfms is 583, does that look right?

Any input would be great

I rounded things up a bit and came up with 564 so I'm sure you are right.

Myself I'd most likely go with the 4 600s

Would u think i should stick with the normal size hood that cover a 4x4 area or go with the extra large hoods like the raptor with 600 watt bulbs?

Well the raptor hoods will spread the light over the area more but the regular hoods will give better penetration. If the normal hoods cover the space then I'd go with them. With 600watt lights I myself won't go over 3x3 ft space with them no matter what hood I'm using. 1000watters 4x4 space.

600w HID(maybe just hps) are supposed to have something like 7% more llumens per watt than 1000w, so you could possibly get away with 3 600w vs 2 1000 watt


--------------------
Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

Well the bog thing u have to under stand is that lumes mean nothing to plants. The. Lumes is something that is used to judge how much light the human eye can see. So the grow light companys use lumms to makes there bulbs sound better when it makes no real benefit to the plants.

Also the room is so wide a normal size hood is for 3x3 area but ill se it based on a 4x4 area so four hoods could only cover a 8x8 are and im working with a 11´4" x 6´7".

The other day hortilux made a post saying that voltage is more important than PAR and Lumens, but I don't really know wtf that means.

anyway I've just gotten the impression that there are some slight advantages to 600w vs 1000s. at least some things to consider, but yea I suppose area of coverage is important too.

With the 600w you will probably have less heat.  I run a 1k watt and it puts off way more heat than my 600w veg light.  I grow in a 4x4 space with a 1k watt hps and have never had bad results.  If it was me, I personally would go with the regular reflectors and 4x 600w lights.

Yes 600 had better out put for watt to watt compaired to a 1000, it is deffently a little more efecient. i would like to go with 6 of them but dont think the house power breaker box can handle it..
