Sunraise QB2000???

So I’m switching from a 10x10 tent with a 1000 watt MH/HPS to a 3x3 and one, soon to be two, 4x4’s. I played with the 3x3 and a Mars Hydro TS1000 and am VERY happy with the results for only using 150 watts. Now the 4x4’s will be another inexpensive test of lights with 2 Sunraise QB-2000’s in each 4x4. I didn’t want to invest $1000’s in pro lighting until I learned how to operate cheaper ones (distances, power levels, etc.). These were both recommended by a fellow grower that I know has good results/yields. Any feed back you could give me on them would be greatly appreciated.

I have no experience with that light or brand, but did just look into it. Nice looking light for a decent price. However, with a draw of only 200w, I think it would work decent in a 4x4 for veg considering it's footprint, but honestly think you'll be disappointed if trying to flower with just that... I'm thinking at least 2 of those for flowering in a 4x4, but dimension wise these won't fit. I have Samsung boards. Ran 4 panels last run, equaling to 480-500w draw at the wall when turned full blast, which I try not to do... Only ran between 400-450. This run I'm adding another 240w panel in addition, for better coverage, and will likely run them between 600-680. I think this will be the sweet spot for my setup and style.

I've only been growing for around 9 years now, but I've tried various cheap (blurple) led lights my entire growing career, along with some cheaper cobs, until I finally got me some good quality Samsung boards. Kinda wish I wouldn't have pussy-footed around with the cheap stuff and went straight for the goods. I've got at least half a dozen+ cheaper lights (costing probly around $800-$1000, possibly more, over the years, with decent, but really, subpar results) that really have no use other than veg or side/supplemental lighting in flower at best.

Just my 2 pennies for whatever it's worth...

dude if it was me get a refurbished 500 eco or 550 or 600 or 650r cause those 3rd party qb aren’t worth it for if not close price . A 550 eco would be like 450 bucks with promo

Thanks for the input, I’ll let you know how it goes. I believe I can fix the space issue. Although it would fit with 2 inches to spare on each side. We’ll see...

things like that are in my future but those are also twice what I paid for 2 of the QB’s and as I stated I want to master LED’s before I invest 1200.00 on refurbed lights. Thank you and I’ve marked the URL for when I’m ready to move up. More than likely about a year from now.

So I just found these. One is 2 QB-2000’s in a 2x4 tent. They had the same idea I did of heat resistant tape to make it one unit and the second pic is 1 week before harvest. I can deal with those kind of yields. I’ll let you know how it goes. Babies go under them to flower Sunday.206CB571-F5A7-4E7F-8821-1F40DA57DFF4.jpeg

Here’s a picture of the lights set up in the new 4x4. The fit (barely) and they do work. We’ll see how they do once I move the babies under them and flip them in about a week. The proof will be in the pudding.

Right on man! I must have read the dimensions incorrectly. They look good! Looking forward to the show. Hopefully they put out for ya👊
I have about an inch to spare on either side. They also had a “lean” to them not matter how I adjusted things it wouldn't correct. So in the end I sat a pair of vice grips on a couple of the light boards and it’s weight evened everything out. I will say I LST’d hard core this morning and within 30 minutes under these lights they just stood right up. The right side looked like the left 30 minutes before. I had just placed the left two in the tent when this picture was taken. My plants and how they respond to things tell me everything I need to know. I honestly think these lights will work. But raising and lowering them is a oain in the.....

I can’t complain about these lights. I’m still learning power setting and distances with LED’s but my plants are telling me everything I need to know. Here they are a week later lollipop’d and defoliated again.
Right now I’m running them at 60% (of 400 watts) at 24 inches. Any stronger or closer and they get unhappy. I just snipped a few of the higher tops on Wed. So I’m giving them until next Wed. to recover then I’ll flip.
