hello guys, so i have a mars hydro ts1000 and i'm wondering if i could add a QB288 V2 LM301B board to the driver, can the driver support the 2 lights connected to it?

Highly doubt it. Mars isnt going to sell you a driver that has 120w of headroom.

That driver only puts out 150w, the quantum board takes 120w. The mars takes the entire 150w. So I'm pretty sure your 150w driver isnt going to put out 270w.

Also the qb is 24v. The driver is minimum 27v and a max of 54v
You would most likely fry the qb is you tried to run it off that driver. If you tried both lights on that driver, you'd be lucky if it even powered up, and it still might blow the qb.
