Hey Supra, I was going over the diy cob reflector thread from a couple years ago and I was wondering which "white heat paint" worked best for the Leidl angelina's? I thought it was Rustoleum but wasn't sure which one. If you have a minute, could you please enlighten me? Thanks! GF
Hi supraSPL first post and first build Have bought some older gen citizens for my first diy job Never done anything like this before so have been reading an awful lot.
I have to questions if you don't mind answering. Will 5 CLL040-1218 3000k fit on a meanwell hlg185h-c1050a? And will these 5 cobs produce a sufficient amount of light for a 2x2x3 area? I have only ever used the large cfl grow bulbs before
Hey SupraSPL. My first post here,so here goes... I will be getting some cxb3590's soon. [email protected](36v) and [email protected](36v).What will be the best BIN's to buy for those 2 spectrums? I want 2 drivers and have been adviced by RapedLED to get 2 Mean Well HLG-240H-C1400B. Will this be a good driver for running 4 cobs or do you recommend something else?
Newb on forum. Wanting to get grow license in Alaska, but tough affording enough cob lights to make money at it starting out. Wondering if you could help me out here. Are members still able to get good prices with Kingbrite? I'm new to talk forums and havent figured out if this Kingbrite thing is still a good go. Lovin this site . Thanx for being there.
Hello Supra! Been reading many forum last few months. Thank to you and many others for your time and info. I was curious on reflector if you've ever tried using reusing the 4oz jello or fruit containers? I just think the reflectors sold is so expensive. If DIY reflector is as good I'd go that route. Thanks again for your abundance of info
Hi Supra.. Need you advice..
I have One CXA3070 working at 50W
I use it currently on top of 1 week Seedlings.
What is the distance i should put it?
I soon will order a driver and run 6 CXA3070 together..
And when i do get all 6 workig, what distance should i put between the panel and my veg plants?
Hey supra heard a lot of great things. I have a question. I just recently purchased 8- cxb3590 3500k 36v DB cobs, 8-150*70mm pre-drilled pin heatsinks, 2- MW HLG-185H-C1400B drivers. For a 4x4 area what would proper displacement and spacing be?
ive got a brain bubble while reading info and find U as a very good example
my english is no good
i order 10 pcs prolight opto PACF-57FVL-BC8P ( 6 at 3000k & 4 at 5000)
what you think bout this mixture
and a problem! which driver works good at this optos?
ive found a meanwell Mean Well HLG-185H-36B /5.2 a
i calculate something like f 10 cobs at 520 ma and ive got around 30000lm at 187 w/im right?
I'm looking at this Mean well HLG-600H-36A. On that doc it says I can run 6 vero 29's on that power supply running at 2.78 amps. It looks like these are adjustable? if so do you use meters to tell what the amperage is?
Also since this is a 600 watt power supply does that mean that each of these 6 chips are running at 100 watts each, would I still need active heatsinks with this setup?
I'm currently gathering information on my light choice for a 4x12 table, I've watched videos from growmou5 and saw where he's reccomended you as the guy in the know. Is there a way you could pm me where we could discuss my options as my electric situation is unique
Hey supra, quick question. Should i use the kingbrite 120°lens or no lens. I see growmou5 uses lens but ive read some post saying the lens penalize the cobs and some that say they help. I need your help. Thanks
You rock! thanks for all the info on DIY LEDs. Do you know anyone other than Jerry where I could buy COBs from a high bin? The best bin he has for the 3590 is CD, and he doesn't have any CXB1820. I am having a hard time finding any COBs from one of the top 2 or 3 bins. My goal is 45k lumens while staying under 300W. I like the idea of the 1820 because I can get a good variety of 2700k,3500k, and 5000k
