Wondering what led lights would be better for my tent. I have a 8’x4’ tent, it will have 4 flowering plants in it with 2 lights. There will be a light on the left side over 2 plants and a light on the right side over 2 plants. I am trying to decide between 2 lights. I was wondering if someone with experience knows what would be better for my grow.

(These are what i think are the best options in my price range)
Two of the “ Mars hydro TSW 2000w “
Or
Two of the “ Bestva dc series 3000w “

I read somewhere that the yellow full spectrum is better because it is closer to actual sunlight that is why i was considering the mars hydro. But the bestva lights are 3000w instead of 2000w but the light is purple not yellow.


Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance
 
Would two of these be better?

im a little nervous about buying a random chinese brand and running it all day but a few people mentioned them and i was thinking about trying them
 
Thanks everyone! I appreciate all the info. Im trying to find the right Quantum boards now. I dont want to spend too much so sf4000 are out of the question. If anyone has suggestions on what 2 lights i should get let me know. Im in canada so they will need to be able to ship to canada.

Search alibaba for kingbrite

They deliver to Canada (I'm in BC and they came fast) a few of us around here have kingbrite fixtures and have nothing bad to say about them. They use the new lm301b/h leds by Samsung (the brightest leds on the market) and mean well drivers (a very well known and trusted manufacturer). I just ordered another one today!

They are hands down the best deal you're going to get on a quantum board of quality.

For a 4x8 I would suggest 2 of these:

You may be able to get away with 3 240w fixtures but I'll leave that up to you.
 
I might get 2 of the Kingbrite 480w but It gives me 3 options, 3000k or 3500k or 4000k. What one would be better? Im trying to figure out roughly how much shipping would be but i need to pick one of those options first before it tells me the shipping

My 2 cents on the mats..don't waist the money I have 2 of the 1600.. they do not veg well..they do bud decent...I have 4 700 parr.viperspectra..id recommend those..I also have a 1200 viparspectra..it's not as good as the 700 Parr lights but still way better then the mars..

You may want to do a bit more searching alibaba for kingbrite. They have other versions, other setups. I run in 2 3x3's but if I ran a 4x8 I would buy 4 240w units so I could spread my light out more. Might be cheaper too.

I dont bother with red LEDs, everything i read about them is they dont give you much more red, they dont last as long, and their efficiency is horrible. They just take up power that could be used for more lm301b's. I opt for 3000k straight up. I would get 2700k if they made them, but they dont ☹

If you want to supplement red or uv or ir you can just buy a few bulbs, that way you get to control the amounts, and when they burn out, you just replace them. Not to mention you can get way more efficient uv and ir using bulbs, and usually cheap.

Just some thoughts should you want to know 🤣
 
I have a smaller tent ill start them in. Ill veg in there for a bit till they are bigger. Then put them in my big tent with the new lights and veg in there till they are ready to flower.
