    Wao was wao super excellent info thank you very much for taking the time to answer, I am using an open space with 12 1k Hps and I am thinking about to replace all of them with this better efficient lights. Thank you one more time.

    It could be installed/mounted high like 1000w hps but without some serious lenses it would be a waste to mount them far away from plants.led and hid have little in common when it comes to mounting heights.hps will burn plants with ir and led will not.so we use the les radiation angles for our height more so than any type of reflector like is used in most hid lighting.plus with hid youhave 1 light source so mounting high above gives you better coverage,not the case with multiple cob array or even quantum boards.
    Thats my take.

    So i have been following posts about the quantum's and will be
    Ordering this week, question is this, does it make any sense running
    4 boards. In a small tent 2X3x5. I have carbon scrubber and an inline fan. For driver im thinking about a 240-2100 or the 320-2800, using the A style. I dont plan on running them full throttle, that would be bad news, but having ability to turn down, efficiency would increase. Any input would be appreciated

    Those optics do change things as far as i can tell from the thermal image @Stephenj37826 posted.could be they work better up high in the air like hps

    no lens for the canada folks i guess the price jump is totally outta control. For one board it will cost me more then the board itself. I couldn't believe it mouser and digikey want 10$ CA for one lens times ouch

    The retrofit kit is being tested against a 1000 watt Hortilux. Both are in Magnum XXL reflectors. As far as I can tell I've tested both with a par meter and the Retrofit kit holds its own as far as intensity at the same hieghts as the his side. This particular build is running 550 watts at the wall vs the Hortilux 1060.

    4 boards is what Capitan is running in a 3X3 on a 240 2100. In your space I think the 240 2100 will be plenty. If however you ever plan on upsizing your space the bigger driver would be nice. You can always dim the 320-2800 . Just my thoughts on the matter. It's extra $ up front but one thing I have learned is everyone starts out small and increases there grow space over time.

    Nope.... The optics( in my opinion) are good for lower power builds or open rooms. If these boards where spaced even closer together the intensity would be even higher. It all comes down to the particular build. If I was good with 24" mounting hieghts or less no optics is fine (in a 500+ watt build). If you are in an open area I would consider the optics to reduce spillage. If not I'd go without ( unnecessary cost).
