Pretty self explanatory, I need to replace the light I have now because it gets to hot. What are some good suggestions for a light for a 2x4 tent. P.s I’m on a budget

1. 2 * HLG 135w rspec
2. 2* Viparspectra XS1500
3. Viparspectra xs2000

In order of best to worst in my opinion.

im happy with my viparspectras, xs2000 and two xs1500. whatever you get, you can find coupons for most. viparspectra website didnt charge me tax, so that saved a bunch instead of amazon.

HLG makes a good light. Minimum 240 watts is also about right for a 2 x 4. It would be 30w per ft square. Two of those boards at 270w total would be even better.

I've got 6 quantum boards from Kingbrite on Alibaba ... I've been happy with those boards, but I'm hesitant to recommend them without knowing what shipping rates are currently running.

I've got no experience with the Viparspectra.

I got two viparspectra p1000s instead of 1 p2000, I think it gives me a more customizable footprint that way but you end up with 2 cords instead of 1

2 cords, lol ... I will take the 2 cords and the flexibility it gives you with the 2 lights as opposed to using just 1. OP is interested in the HLG 135. If it runs at 135w and he buys 2, it would be golden. You would be the one to let the OP know about the viparspectra lights but 2 is always better than 1 in my opinion.

It looks a lot like the ROI-e720 I have for my 5 x 5 tent. If it is, it would be an outstanding light. I didn't see what it cost in the link you provided. Assuming the manufacturer is not fudging numbers, ppf/w : 3.1 umols/J is outstanding.

Edit: Found the price $649. 00 ....

Thoughts on the TSL2000? Thats what I run in my 2x4. Im new though, gonna use it for veg and flower.
I've never used anything from Mars so I have no idea on what the quality is. Your light is PPE: 2.3umol/J The slim320S mentioned above is a much better light in terms of output (providing those numbers are real), but it's also more than double the price.

30w per sq ft of full spectrum LED will give you more than enough to flower strongly.

Prob help if you gave an idea as to the budget you have
