In just a couple of weeks, I will have my new LED equipment in, and ready for sale.
Did some measuring on an old A/V case a friend gave to me - it's nice and large, 8.5" wide, 21" long, 16" tall. Got it lined with Chromalux paper-backed reflective foil, stuck a 120mm fan in there, gonna pull the 200w PSU out and block that off, run a 12V wall wart directly to the 120mm fan.
My 50W circular panel is only 6.5" for the outer diameter - I could fit THREE of these things in there for a total of 150w for about 1.5 cubic feet of space - OVERKILL. I'll stick with a single 50w. I've got a 6 quart tub in there, rigged to hold two plants. I still need to get an airline and airstone set in there. I'm going to shoot for an ounce per plant, that will prove my LED panel does the damned job and can perform right up there with any HPS, if I hit past the "gram per watt" barrier most growers tend to come up against.
