I feel moving it here would better serve the community here as this is basically a continuance of that build and places like ebay have them used a lot of them easier to hack than mine was but I got 480w. of cob led for about $230 that would be great if you could make that happen cause any pics of the build are there thank you for the input

It is ... 14 by 8.5 inches. And I'd love to make a cob for my 3*3 ?
Looking at the diodes from the bottom you should have 2 separate panels separated by a metal strip the panels will each have a glass covering you should be able to put 4-6 50v. luminus cobs & two axg 200h-ab drivers for a total of 400w. & you'll use the existing housing most of the wiring , fans & heatsinks with a voltmeter soldering iron & basic tools you could do this PM me & I can better explain your options I'm not sharpest tool on the bench & I did it

Plants look very happy 👍
as I don't possess or have access to or know how to use any of those meters so what I'm doing is taking bud pics from various places in the canopy just to see what they're doing I'm gonna raise the light to its final location tomorrow but so far so good these are the same pics from my 4x4 journal these 50v. luminus cobs way cheaper than vero29 but perform as good according to tests on you tube that being said I don't understand all that high - tech terminology so I'm back to my original question will it produce bud ? ? 20201021_152003.jpg20201021_151854.jpg20201021_151838.jpg

I want more info, where is this thread where you built this cob light @horribleherk ?
Im thinking maybe a couple between each of my panels.
Its here on phenohunter.org in the diy&tutorials when I did the build I didn't know this led stuff was here & I have no pics so I cant start another thread I had a different tablet then so some of the pics ain't the greatest the thread is called my vipar spectra hack

I'm getting the first sign of ripening we will have a better Idea of what these cobs are all about when I wrap up this grow I'll share the assets as well as my shortcomings of these cobs which will be my honest no holds barred opinion just remember it's my opinion & different opinions & observations are welcomed as well 20201116_095900.jpg20201116_095856.jpg
