    #828388 - 09/06/17 11:25 PM (1 month, 13 days ago)

Can someone tell me the difference between LEDs lights? I see some 1000w for like $500 while others are only $100..

I dont get it. Looking to get a new set up going and will be looking to get a 1000w.

slippery slope marketing. Most the stuff they say about the lights is hyped out.

So your lighting up a 4x4 area then... you need at least 600watts (actual power draw) from a good light, but probably more like 7-800w. I spent like $1400 on my XML650 to cover that area.

You could build one for about half of that. I'm done buying pre-fab LED's. I've built a few small lights and will build my next big light when I need it. If you can solder and drill a hole you could figure it out. The hardest part is selecting the right diodes.
