4x4 tent for veg, 5x5, for flower.
options considered are
1. 2 ac infinity S6s, one in each tent with separate filters
2. 1 ac infinity S8 in the 5x5 with a filter, and exhausting the 4x4 into the 5x5 with a booster fan
(not sure if the booster fan is needed, but i want to extend the life of the S8)

any ideas are welcomed

thoughts?

and from floor to ceiling is ...?
LxWxH
its needed for cubic feet per minute - CFM - values
that tells ya the rate of exchange and also matches you up with a fan/blower to handle it.

6'11" tall, gorillagrowtents
so 5' x 5' x 6' 11" ?
yes.
that value would be the VOLUME of " AIR within that space. measured in CFM - cubic feet per MINUTE
Then you would factor the exchange rate. How often do you need to refresh the air in the tent.
How many watts are you running? which will give you the amount of heat being generated:
The standard is 1 watt = 3.4 btu's of heat generated per MINUTE.


Then all you do is divide the Volume of air ( which is you CFM ) by how fast you want the "air" swapped out PER MINUTE.

thanks for the info,

i'm going with two ac infinity T6s, and Can filters

I know there are less expensive options, but i have a window of opportunity to spend a bit more on what i hope will last a few years.
