    Ok thanks so I need a minimum of 3000K if going to use just one board. That might have just made the decision for me!

    I think IS are waiting on their new stuff, arriving fairly soon if you can wait for a bit.

    Otherwise we can use some of their current stock or use strip lighting which can slot in rather well

    Best if you can sketch a floor plan so I can see the dimensions etc

    I'll do a floor plan and a sketch of the room shape as it's not equal pitches with the roof as I'm in the loft, I'll get pictures tomorrow as well. I'm happy to wait for I.s but I'm thinking stripe lighting

    thinking of extending the groom to around 2.0x1.2 so may go with two 0080.

    Hello mate

    What has drawn you to these lights?

    There are very premium and high quality builds. Very safe and have multiple certifications. Very well engineered.

    The output is 20-30% behind HLG quantum boards for example in terms of per watt.

    They are a couple of years old numbers now so need to bear that in mind.

    Hello mate

    Before I make a purchase on a new light I’d like to make sure I’m spending my money wisely. We've been through this I’m sure but thought il double check

    40 x 40 x 140 Tent
    Current Light 600w meizhi

    Im looking to get away from fan cooled leds. Silence is key. A small build is an option but I’d prefer off the shelf ready built for ease ?

    Hi mate, shit best do my homework on this one :-)

    How much height do you normally have to play with, with the type of plants and techniques you employ when fully grown?

    A tricky one to answer. Based on my usual strain no more than 0.8m from floor to plant top. I can restrict height quite easily by topping at a different node and resticting the pot size... Whats the ideal distance I need for a qauntum board type light?

    Also could you provide me with a light recomendation for a 75 x 40 x 165. Would an invisible sun fit nicely? This could be plan B if you think the 40 x 40 above will prove difficult for a qauntum board

    So for the smaller space I think a single 288 led board would go in there running at 125w-150w. This would produce a dense 200g photoperiod, pro rata for an auto

    I currently use a 150ish tallish space and I'm fine with my lights at full power at 15 inches ( as pic )

    The second space gives more height option but is only just larger. You could squeeze double 288 in there and run a 250w light. I need to measure my light when I go to my groom in minute bear with me

    All solutions produce zero noise and very low radiant heat. You would need 4 inch extract max for both

    Yep you can get a full heatsink in there Blue so 250w in the bigger space. That can be dimmed of course

    Hello mate

    Under hps I would use 2x600 in a 2.0x1.2 so I would recommend 3-4x250 kits from IS , more like 4. Hugely more light than the hps.

    Compared to the 2 telos units, you will have way over double the light but will have a bit of DIY and wiring to do.

    Sound advice cheers mate

    I think I’m going to go with the 2nd option, the larger space and run x2 autos. Which ISH model do I need? I also notice they have optional K output?
