2.4 x 1.2 tent diaries completed

I'm going to buy myself a green qube tent 2.4 X 1.2 , spent most of yesterday looking through the diary section looking for completed diaries using the same size tent, managed to only find about 2/3 diaries and that's after getting to page 102 in the diary section lol going back that far half the pictures are missing in the diaries too. Can anybody point me to some completed diaries using these size tents? Just wanna see what lights and extraction people are using and what yields I'm to expect. I've looked but no luck at all.

All depends on what type of lighting you want to use but for me its an 8" out 6" in. 2x600w hps with a cmh 315 as a supplement. Done right 50oz+

Exactly what I was thinking apart from I was gunna whack 600hps and 1000hps rotating them, would I still get away with 8 inch in 6 out? Get a fan controller too. Thinking 8 plants veg for 6 weeks 50 ounce would be what I'd be aiming for.

In winter you may well get away with 2x1000w. You can always use the 1000w dimmable lights and turn them down in the warmer months

 

You dont need any bigger fans for a tent that size no matter what lighting you use

would I be right in thinking you're on about the higher powered rvk 200 L1? 8 inch outtake

ive run a few 2.4 by 1,2s over the years, with just 2 x 600 hps and once used the lower powered 8 iinch fan. 

it coped for 3/4 of the year, but I hadto put a L1 in in the summer.cos it couldn't keep the temps below 30.

it also depends where your tent is located. mine was iinside in my spare room, vented thru the loft, and with a 6 inch (lower powered A1) intake. if its in a garage, I reckon the lower output would cope year round, because it will be cooler to start with.

I now oversize my fans/ filters and run them off a controller, as much as to keep the noise down a bit as anything. and I know I will never run out of extraction.

Spare room 3 floor flat venting into the attic, I'd get the higher power one and put them on a fan controller.

Like you said it all depends on where you get your fresh air from and where you extract to but in summer just about everyone suffers with high temps no matter what fans they have. If its 20 degrees and muggy then thats what you are bringing in. Couple that with the heat of the lamps and I would say if you got it to 30 you've done pretty well. I have temps warmer than that if it gets really warm outside but my plants are sound

 

Ive got two box fans at the mo on controllers but have used rvk's in the past with no probs. Theres only so far you need to go

Can't agree more. I think anything more than that in that space is OTT lol 6 x CMH can do 70~ oz in the same space with the same extraction too :yinyang:

Be happy with 50 don't want to be too greedy lol think it's gunna be 8 inch extraction high power and 6 inch intake lower power on fan controller, 2 metre parabolics 600w hps with dimmable ballast and a 1000w hps rotating in flower. 8 12 litre pots vegged for 6 weeks lst them to death, should hit my 50 ounce mark. @Golden Syrup read through your diary mate, great diary! Running like a Swiss watch.
