Hello, I have build a 5'x5' room that's 25 sqft. The light calculators say 50 watt per sqft. is the best for penetration. I have two 600 watt ballast that puts it at 1200 watts,the  as the calculator says 1250 watts for 25 sqft so 50 watts short I think it will be fine. The two hoods are 8"air cooled Predator big hoods 26"7/8 x 30"5/8. I set the light up with a pulley system so I can raise and lower them with out having to get in the room all the way. Have a 8" vortex 742cfm's pulling air into the room from to intake vent on each side of the door. about eye level.The outlets are on the floor on the inside.The plan is to have the air pulled through the plants up to the lights intakes. The lights exhaust into the box on top of the door.The other side in the room I have the fan hanging and exhausting in the room for now.That will change and go into the attic. Still have to build the fan silenter box so the noise levels go way down.Fired both the lights up and plugged the fan in and the temp started out at 74 at the time of the pix . It's hitting 82 right now. There a few light leaks and once I chalk the room and tape off the leaks I thing the temps will drop. have bit of tweaks and she will be filled with Plants. here's What i have so far. Forgot the door had magnets glued to the door and a wire inside of the plastic so when the door closes the plastic is pulled over the edge of the door stopping light. Peace

way bigger than what you have. may want to replace the bungy cords with chain, rubber and heat don't mix well with vibration

hey toke... what was your final roof height for the 5x5 room?  I was thinking about 4x6 for my flower box on wheels.

I'm hoping the extra width will help give me some space for mounting all the accessories.  the plainer I can keep my boxes looking on the outside, the better.
