not really...but first since I found it..again
But back to the subject.. It is inherent in lights that use only higher k whites and of course those w/ poor QC..
Take the Finnex w/ 8000k whites but adds 660nm reds.. May not "score" the best CRI but substitutes "red pop".
Fluval "scores" 8000k but uses ww,cw, and colors..
Sat plus pro
even multi-colored Chinese stuff on eek bay has added "colors"
And for a change it is not just a gimmick..
If you want to compare the Kessil to anything.. finnex RayII or any 6500K Beamsworks.. but think of the price difference..
My main point is Kessil should know better..look at their hort. line. Not sure why they haven't upgraded their chip to be honest..
apparently they think it is "good enough" I beg to differ..
does it grow plants sure.
does it shimmer ..sure
does it look cool.. yep..
But even candles (with enough of them) will grow plants.. and maybe even better, being high in red.. and a blackbody spread..
since I am on a roll here.. I'll add the next "oddity" of the Kessils..
Kessil "logic" allows one to maintain a constant output w a change in spectrum.. i.e as you, say increase ch2 (say the 9000k channel) ch1 needs to decrease to maintain a constant output.
Great concept but keep in mind that means at 50/50 the ind. channels are running at 1/2 power..
In other words the light, theoretically is capable of 2x the output but it throttled down to make headroom for spectrum tweaking..
At least that is how I see it..
If you get bored..Keep in mind some is def. opinion
