hey guys i have a grow box 3.5 feet high 2.5 long and 1.5 feet long, i have 3 450w lights 100w equivalent and want to know what kind of fans i should get or the power of them and how many?
Okay so that nixes the air cooled part.... You will need a good inline fan to suck the hot air out of your grow box and then a cpl passive intakes down low to bring in plenty of cool air from outside.bubblegum44 said:they are cfls with 6500 kelvins in the box, im not sure the exact watts but i know there 100w not 100 equivalent.
In one place you say they are 100W equivalent and in another you say they are actual 100W. How big are the lights? Do they have mogul sockets? How many lumens do they put out? 100W CFLs are LARGE bulbs. I also suspect that if they were actual 100W that your space would be getting quite hot without ventilation.bubblegum44 said:they are cfls with 6500 kelvins in the box, im not sure the exact watts but i know there 100w not 100 equivalent.
bubblegum44 said:on the other thread i didnt say it was 100w equivalent people were saying they were, they are the 420w 100w equivalent and i was kind of wondering like exta fan i should get i know it is very important thats why i want to find the perfect ones, considering i am new and you guys know yous stuff i was hoping someone could find one i should buy and how many because i have seen many types of inline fans just dont know what one to get, and i dont know how many because i plan on having 1 or 2 blowing air and 1 or 2 exhausting it and i am getting a gel to put on cardboard to rid the smell, if you know what the gel is it would also help my friend told me but i forgot the name
Where did i say PC fans???bubblegum44 said:what one would you say is better for the size i have ona gel or carbon filter?
are you 100% sure ill only need pc fans considering i am going to be using 3 100w clf lights or how many to get?
