That’s a 600w ballast and globe, better with the 400w kit for your tent. You’ll need a timer of some sort too.

I’m aware but it has a dimmer for 400w so I’ll keep it on 400

Going to use my 130w cfl for seedling stage then 400w hid for veg and possibly 600w for flower but probably not.

Is there an issue with keeping a 600w on a 400w setting?

Dimming a 600w bulb down to 400w ruins the spectrum. Better to get a 400w at max power.

Final question; if I buy a ballast with 3 settings (250w 400w 600w) And keep it on 400w

All I need is a 400w bulb and a reflector/lampholder to run it?

Edit: all I need is a cool tube to replace the Reflecter

Yeh, the better quality digi ballasts will be able to run multiple watts.

Awesome, well then I’ll buy the cool tube, ballast and globe next week; my local hydro shop has it all for $400 delivered.

There’s yet another problem solved, cheers guys I’ll post pics in this thread and/or make a new one when I update the grow diary next week.

+ 1 Frank. Go quality. +1 Gazza For your tent size, stick with the 400w.

Do you have ducting to fit your cooltube? You'll need that, at least x2, a length for each end. Next question where are you going to vent it too? Do you need fittings to vent the cooltube?
