Upgrade to 260xl v2

Looking to find if there is a reasonable “upgrade” mine is not “r” type. What would be a good upgrade for my 2x4x6.3 tent using soil and Jack’s. I’m thinking my goal here is to improve bud density and quality. Yield isn’t a major concern.

You could change to rspec boards, add a third board, or both.

Yeah, the Rspec is what you need for flowering. HLG produces some red supplement lights, but I’m not sure that will do the trick.

I see dbrn is responding, so you are in good hands.

If I went with 3 rspec (or would u recommend 2?) I assume I would need to change driver as well??? Which specific board and driver would you suggest. Currently using 260 for both veg and flower.

Looks like they are in stock and on sale for $79 each.

You could remove and replace the V2 boards (they are still good for veg.) A driver change may not be necessary. Let’s ask @dbrn32 .

If you go to 3 versus 2 boards I would expect a driver change might be necessary.

At that cost would there be an advantage in just going to the 300r???

I would say read the specific then you really understand what you need , truthfully all you asking for had been answer to you an in other post , the only reason you can’t decide is because you probably don’t understand what makes them better what makes different , at the end of the day you will be the one applying this to your room and it to you to understand not other

Yeah, just swap to 2 rspec boards. It’s plenty for a 2x4. It’ll be around $160 without the code “dude”.

Would be hlg-320h-c1750 for 3 r-spec boards.

Cost is worth considering other options for sure. Hlg-300 is two boards pushed harder, 320 kits is 3 boards at lower current. So the 3 board setup is definitely superior. To make most out of lowest investment, you could add a single r-spec board and buy the larger driver.

So just mount a r spec in the middle of my heatsink and upgrade driver? What driver would you recomend and what temp board would you recommend. I believe the ones I have are 3500 or 4000. Just sold some more audio toys and cash is burning a hole in my pocket!

Same driver I listed above, and I would probably add the r-spec board in center

Sorry I didn’t notice the driver info at first (had sampled some of my (curring) buds and am quite buzzed)
So what temp would you suggust?
