as the post says, if price was to be no issue what are the best lamps out there. I'm currently running (3) marshydro sp150 and (1) spider farmer 2000 in my cab. I've been thrilled with them so far, about 12 months of constant use now and no problems and wonderful rock hard frosty buds. That being said, I realize that I have "price point" lights. Just curious what the higher end lights are and what they are going for for a 4x4.

What about DIY? I'm planning on doing a 4x4 LED strip build with part of my Christmas bonus this year (assuming we get them/still have jobs at that point). WAAAAY cheaper for the price point and you can decide exactly how to set it up for your space. Don't even need to solder it if you use wago connectors.

If you wait for Arrow to do deals on strips you can build a $2000 light for like $600 lol.

DIY with a mixture of strips, QB 96’s and Agromax UV bulbs is the route I’m going.

Exactly. Anything with a fan is Old School Shit, lol.
Look at Growratio. You can get a real 1000w led, plus their controllers are light years ahead of everyone else.

You may want to go tell the fan thing to the ecotech radion, its a top of the line led unit for reef aquariums. 12 channels of independent color, can tune from 5000k to 25000k. Company alone makes HLG look like a mom an pop shop from the 40s. The only old tech is Led lighting for horticulture that still relies on manual dimmers.

Don’t forget about photontek. Their existing 600w was one of the best Migrow ever tested and the 1000w versions they’re working on will set a new standard.
Regardless of which fixture you choose, the AgroMax UV idea is spot on. Existing UV diodes has very poor useful life so a 4’ T5 bulb on a light mover at the top of the tent seems like the way to go
