for 32sqft at 5000 lumens/sqft is 160,000 lumens. 600's give off around 90,000 to 95,000 lumens. Two 600 hundreds would give you 190,000 lumens which is enough.

Not in my opinion......I run a 4x4 tent and run a 600w in a cool tube and a 400w in a standard reflector. I really wld like to run two 600's in a cool tube in there. I think that wld be sweet. 4x8 is dbl the sqr feet of mine...3 wld probably be spot on for that. JMO

pc is right bro....2 wld get you to the min. My post was more geared towards overkill. I don't think 3 600's is overkill in the hands of a grower with some experience. jmo

OK Hamster Lewis sounds good I have a few grows under me I think I will try 3 600's and see what happens.

Sounds good...let us know how it works out.

I agree with HL--I have 2 600W in a 3 x 6.5 space and do not believe it is overkill. While 2 600 watters are adequate, IMO, three would be better.

Be cautious with the heat issue in taht small space. I run (3) 600w in about 4.5' X 8' and heat is a big problem. Or was until I popped for a mini-split.
(3) 600w in that space will give you some nice big, tight, sparkley buds, if that's what you're loking for.

i run a similar setup as hamster. i got a 600w and a 400w in cooltubes in my 4x4, if i were you i would rock out atleast 2 600s and a 400w, 3 600s would be great coverage in that area.

I agree but he is gonna run CO2 so higher temps are a good thing I believe.

I gotta talk the wife into letting me get another 600 in a cool tube for the tent. 2 600's in there wld be the bomb.
