Got a 1.2 x 1.2x 2metre tall tent inside a
a garage . Getting quite cold now. So to up temp and hopedulñy get more bud was genna add an extra light.
At the momebt im using a 600 watt hps.

I can either have a 600 an a 250 hps total 850 watt.
Or 2x 400 watt wud be more even light spread but 50 watt lower .800watt.

Let me no ya thoughts cheers.

HPS lights will help heat up the tent, if that is an issue for you. Personally, I like the LED options these days but most don't run nearly as hot as the HID systems. For a budget that doesn't break the bank, I like going with Spider Farmer lights, I know they make a model for the footprint you need. Worth a look. Other companies of note include HLG, Chillogic RapidLED and many people are using the mars hydro set-ups.

I misunderstood your question.

I guess I would use the 2, 400w HPS lamps. Create a nice even spread of light over the canopy.

Well, are you looking at the efficiency per watt? The 600w may be brighter but if you have the two 400w lights, they overlap and create a stronger intensity than if it was an individual 400w.

the 400w will be more even, how would you balance the room with a 600 on one side and the 250 on the other?
