What are the dimensions of the blockbuster?
The dimensions are 25.5" width and length x 9.5" tall.
Hi greners, what is the actual weight for this reflector. Regards.
The actual weight of the Blockbuster 6" is 19.5 LBS.
I'd like to know what works better in 4x4 grow tent: the blockbuster 6" reflector or a medium Adjust-a-Wing. Also how is the Adjust-a-Wing cooled.
Between the two, in a 4x4 grow tent, I would strongly suggest the blockbuster, as the Adjust-a-Wing reflector is not an air cooled reflector and may cause heat issues in a 4x4 tent.
If I use a 600 watt bulb in this fixture will I need a socket extension? Perhaps the sunlight supply socket assembly allows for some adjustment? Secondly will a 600 be a nice match with this hood in a 4 x 4 tent? I am currently using an arctic sun 6 with the 600 and it seems like arctic sun 6 might be made for smaller footprint garden. In your experience what have you noticed? Thank you for your time!
You don't "need" a socket extension, but a mogul-mogul adapter will help center a 600w bulb in this fixture. The Blockbuster is ideal for a 4x4 space and spreads a beautifully even light compared to the Arctic Sun.
Does the blockbuster 6" reflector that you carry have the bead ring on the air-cooled fittings to hold the ducting firmly in place?? I have seen some models of the blockbuster on the net that didnt have that feature so I dont know if there are two versions or maybe an older 1. I am looking for one with the bead ring. Thanks Greners
the older version of the block buster, along with the Magnum XXXL Line came without the bead rings, the newest version does.
Are you able to run a 400 watt lamp within the Blockbuster 6" Reflector?
A 400 watt lamp in a Blockbuster 6" Reflector will run correctly and efficiently!
Will the EcoPlus 6" inline Duct Booster fan efficiently cool the Blockbuster 6" Reflector?
If you are running a 600 watt lamp within the Blockbuster 6" Reflector a duct booster would work great, but with a 1000 watt lamp I would recommend having at least 180+ CFM. The duct boosters just do not quite do the job, if you or on a tight budget go for the EcoPlus Classic Inline Fan - 4" 160 CFM you would be much better off than the duct booster!

Is the Blockbuster Reflector 6"/8" the exact same size?
That is correct! The 6" and 8" Blockbuster Reflector are identical except for the ducting port size.
