I am going to give leds a go ,I don’t know much about them ,I was looking at 2 se 7000 (730 watt)
then I saw the sf g 1000 watt led , they are not much dearer than the se7000 ,but are 1000 watt ,my tent is 3 meters x1.5 meters x 2.2 meters high,(10 foot x5 ft ) 5 square meters ,would I be better with the 2 x g1000 and turn the intensity dial back and lift light up a bit ,is there something I am missing ?as the g 1000 seems like better value ,thanks for help.

No 2-730w is more light then you will be able to use already

Do u think the spider farmer se 7000 is a decent quality led as the price isn’t to bad ,is there a promo code that I can get a discount
getting light through this site? Do u have no any other brand led that is good value but good quality,thanks for help.
For LED i have used HLG 600, HLG Scorpion Diablo and this grow i will be using the spider farmer SE 7000 and im very confident in its abilities

It shows 4x4 as core coverage. . but will it fit in a 4x4? What 750 minus 10% for this sites promo. . 700 dolla light. . hmmm. .perhaps by the end of the years. Question is, why not their co2 1000w light?
Overkill… its fits a 4x4 thats what mine is and i will be running co2 as usual. Both the gavita 1700e and scorpion diablo run less wattage than the SE 7000 and are specifically for co2 rooms.

You really dont need any more and especially in a tent with reflective walls

Thanks for the advice,I know u know your stuff .
why do some people say u need 35 watts a square foot,with those calculations I would need 1750 watt ,at the moment I have 3 hps but it is starting to get hot,if u think 2 spider farmer se7000 would be enough wattage I will get them ?thanks for the help much appreciated.

Because thats what they read and recommended based on outdated LED info. The tech has progressed but the recommendations have not. It wasnt long ago LED was at 1.9 umol per watt and now it at 3.0 in some cases and thats a huge difference in efficiency of watts to photons

Why are you building it so tight to the light? I know the foot print area but wouldn't more room for foliage be a benefit? Like 5x5 or if you don't have the width 4x5 or 4x6? just for that bit of extra space?
Cause im lazy and this is only for one grow then im moving again. Durafoam, 2x3 etc all come 4x8. But your absolutely right a 5x5 space would be far more ideal

I need another ft aswell bro..im still squashed up using 4x5 in 5x5 room 5x6 would b perfect .im not seeing any dropoff on sides either with the lumatek.
Yeah i have no doubt i could flower a 6x6 with the SE 7000 with reflective walls… it makes a massive difference

I bought a 100ft x10ft roll of panda plastic 25 years ago and I make 5' x5' movable panels with 2 hinged together so I can move them in a diamond shape with fans in the corners new tent screwed up the shape but I can move them to give me some extra space when I need it,
