Thinking selling Ray 2 and going DIY full spectrum cannons
Just put together a reef cannon light with O2Surplus' Typhon with LDD board and it's so nice I want to do the same thing for my planted 29g. This is what I had in mind:
Tank is 30" long
2 of these cannons
6 Rebel ES 6500K - 60deg optics
1 Rebel ES Green (530nm) - 90deg optics
1 Rebel ES Cool Blue (475nm) - 90deg optics
1 Rebel ES Deep Red (660nm) - 90deg optics
1 Mean Well LDD-1000H (whites)
3 Mean Well LDD-500H (colors)
48v 5a power supply
Whole thing comes out to <$200 for a fully dimmable (0-100), fully controllable full spectrum system.
The heatsinks are tiny at a 3.5" square and can cool a 77w chip. I will be putting half that per light. All housed in an acrylic box with open top.
