    If you are new to growing i think lighting should be the last thing you focus on, it's not gonna help you get the knowledge you need to grow good meds. I'd focus on the gardening for now if i was you and forget about your lights, as long as plants get enough light each day they will grow fine as long as you take proper care of them. I have seen so many people on this site that know a ton about lights but don't know shit about growing plants and some of them straight up don't grow weed. I wish you the best luck and happy growing.

    i put it to you id need less watts and you went off on one about me needing to learn how to grow. not answering my query. youve been bad mouthing QB all over the place the last couple hours - even deleting your posts after giving it the big one. you're boring.

    sorry op. im done chatting to him

    I don't run blue dream.....not a fan of that strain, follow me on IG there's plenty of pictures. You can even see the dabs i make :) , and i'd love to see a side by side of a 770w QB build hung at 36 inches vs a gavita @ 36 inches. Everything you LED guys say is hypothetical with no actual proof to back you up, every single grow log with QB's is embarrassing to look at everyone is tiny yields from tiny plants.

    I believe you, and i think those are good lights but there are better, QB's are not better , they are for micro grows , the distance to the LED surface has to be way too close to be used in serious production. They would be great for growing leafy greens.

    COB's imo are better than QB's, your main growing is gonna come from those COB's not the QB's , turn off the COB's and try to run QB's only you gonna need to put that thing close as hell. Well done light by the way looks professional , but i am still not sold on QB's.

    The proof is in the pudding, when you show me someone growing pounds instead of a few ounces i will believe all your talk, until then it's just talk and you have no proof besides embarrassing grow logs with tiny plants and tiny yields, a 250w hps would yield more than the QB setup's i have seen using similar wattage.

    I know you have a hard time saying anything good about anything but give me a break. I explained that I put a immature plant into flower. I wasn't looking for big numbers, I just wanted to do a quick run to see how the plant responded to the new light. It showed me everything I need to see, I will be building with quantum boards until the next leap forward in LED tech.

    Yeah the QBs seem legit. I have been following former forum member, GrowMau5's latest build with QBs (on YouTube) and the light he built is about the sickest thing I have ever seen! Man! I think it's probably the biggest most powerful QB I have seen -I think it's 900+ watts at the wall or something like that....It's incredibly bright and has all the bells and whistles. That guy builds some incredible stuff....I can't wait to see some more results from the QB builds. So far, everyone who has them seems to love them.

    1000w of QB boards would have a ppf over 2500µmol/s. your point again?

    At the end of the video, he makes some PAR measurements at 18 "distance, ~ 1000 in the corners, 1500 in the center..
    Which means, at double distance, at least equivalent values like DE1000, but only 300w less consumption.

    By the way, heights is completely uninteresting!
    Each lamp is used in the height for which they are built.
    You can also add Quantumboard with very narrow lenses and they bring the light as deep as a DE1000. Look at @ttystik's vertical arrangement as he bridges distances of over one meter only with QB's and lenses

    His design is nice, but I feel the placement and orientation of the QB could be better to even out the spread. When I build mine Ill use a meter to see what placement has the "best" spread for a 4x4 area.

    Judging by a par map robincnn posted somewhere I can't find again, 8 boards would give "perfect" spread for a 4x4. I believe it was 2 boards in a 2x2 with 800ppf over the whole space.

    Ill try the 4 boards at 640watts first to see if it is a good spread.

    Very simple frame for a 3 board bar. Two 42 inch long 3/4" aluminum angle rails drilled to match the corner holes on the heatsinks with two 1/2 aluminum angles slightly shorter than the heatsinks pop riveted to the main rails.
