    Never seen that light before, not saying it won’t work, but no experience with that brand.

    IMG_1116.jpg it says 175watts true power, for a 3×3 space, is this enough?

    No, not even close. I think it pulls somewhere around 350 watts.

    I think in order to consider a light, you want to see a photo metric plot, one that shows where the light is and at what brilliance in a tent or other defined growing space and specifically at what height the light delivers its particular performance.
    To say a light that only delivers 8184 lumens but has 1469.2umols doesn’t tell anyone enough information to make an informed decision.

    I flower in a 4x4x6.5 Grow Tent. I run the 2 KING LED lights in there and they kill it. Great yields, lower heat issues, and less power used. I use to run a 600w and a 400w HPS in that same tent and the heat was very tough to deal with unless it was dead winter and I cracked a window in the Grow Room. When I switched to the LED's I could actually grow right up until Summer started and then I would shut down for a couple months.

    Hey Serena !-- We haven't crossed paths yet !- Welcome to MP -- I run Aero under LEDs-- Don't know much about numbers but my aero boxes are about half a square meter/yard -- I use one Mars Hydro 300 Reflector Series over each box -- I use the same light in veg and bloom !-
