@Conn I watched that yesterday, great video. I've used his videos to help guide my purchasing decisions when moving from HPS to LED. I've been curious about his lights, cool that you have one in action.

Also look at the Cocoforcannabis site's testing protocol. They test with par meter at various heights, where you can see the distribution
in various sized tents. I have gone from 600 watt HPS (well, still have it) to Mars-Hydro SP 3000. One per 2x4, two in 4x4. Plus I got a couple of them on sale, (and coupon from Cocoforcannabis site) for 309 each to the door.

Nice light, like some other higher end brands they use unique LED combos that use less power for more than expected light output.
several advantages, less power used, less heat and the light can be even closer to the canopy, easing height restrictions imposed when tent growing.

I use that same logic in 4x4 with 2 SP-3000. Plus, one is perfect for my 4x2 tents.

The Mars Hydro TSL 2000 is another low cost high yield choice in 2x4 size tents. Of course I do like the idea of two of the 1000 as well or better

If you are after a Mars Hydro 2x4 tent please be advised. If you look on their site you will see two different 2x4 tents. on 60 inches tall one shorter, I think a few inches shorter. BUT if you put in their search bar 2x4 hydroponic tent, for the same price, it is 71 inches tall. I find things like that on other sites as well. A product flat isnt on there, until you put it in their search bar. Advanced Nutrients was like that a while back. Could be my user error, always a distinct possibility. I did just check out the tent thing though!
