What is the difference between the DR150 and the DR150II?
The DR150II has stronger corners, more durable tent material, and larger vents.
What is the diameter of the intake/outtake holes in the Jardin tents?
It depends on the size of the tent. The DR150 II has 10" ports, while the DR120 II has 8" ports. Keep in mind that these ports can be sinched down from their diameters.
Interested in purchasing the DR150II. Is the Sun System Magnum XXXL 6" Air Cooled Reflector to large for that space? Need space for ducting and fans and such. What ya think?
We think and know that the XXXL 6" works amazing in the DR150II. Although you may need to put your carbon filter outside the tent.
I'm lookin to set up a grow tent right of our sleeping area in an alcove. I hast to be light tight and stink proof. No kids involved but very light sleepers. Your Sunleaves fan- how noisy is it? Please get back to me. Thanks, Hank
This tent can be 100% light tight and smell proof with the perfect adjustments and charcoal filter. The wind tunnel fan is quieter than most inline fans, and can be even quieter with a duct muffler.
How well will a 1000 watt hps work in this tent? It that light too big or too small for this size tent?
That is the perfect size, a 1000 watt or 600 watt bulb are both great for the DR150.
What is the recommended lighting for this tent will a 600W work or is that pushing it with lumens per sq ft. Could I do two 600W in this tent?
Recommended lighting for this tent is a 600 watt setup or a 1000 watt setup. Either is good. If you wanted to do 400 watts then the DR120 or DR90 is better. You could definitely do two 600 watt lamps with the DR150 - for this we recommend lightweight reflectors like the Yield Masters or Artic Sun.
Would two 400 watt lights be good enough for the dr 15011 the two light will be in one hood the large ajust-a wing hood
Two 400w lights would be awesome in this tent, however, heat may become an issue in some climates particularly with adjust-a-wing reflectors. I would suggest considering a single 400 or 600w light in a sealed air-cooled hood with T5 fixtures hung vertically for auxiliary light if needed. This set up should allow you avoid potential heat issues.
Would two 400 watt lights be good enough for the DR-150II the two lights will be in a large Adjust-a-Wing hood
Two 400 watt lights would provide amazing coverage in a DR150, however given the enclosed space, you would be better off with an air cooled reflector so you can vent the hot air directly away from the lights and out of the tent.
How much is the weight of the Secret Jardin Dark Room Pro DR120 II Grow Tent and the weight of the Secret Jardin Dark Room Pro DR150 II?
The DR120 II weighs 31lbs and the DR150 II weighs 37lbs.
What is the best way to suspend my 6" XXXL? I have the DR150II and it comes with 3 support bars. One bar is being supported by the other two right now where my hood is being suspended or attached to the one since it sits higher than the other two. Or would you suggest hanging the hood from the two that hang lower and leave the one that sits higher for support?
Yes, the idea of the two lower bars is that it prevents sag and distributes the weight amongst six points instead of two.
Would two 4 inch Sunleaves inline fans (one for intake and one for exhaust) be good for the DR 150 II? I have (2) 400 watt lights in one hood. Heat is not a problem, I just want good air flow.
That would actually be an amazing setup. However, I would recommend running a few feet of ducting into the back of the tent to assure even distribution of air, and to cut the air intake's CFM just slightly to maintain a slight vacuum in your tent. However, if you are concerned about odor control and are planning on using a carbon filter, I would suggest going with a single 6" Windtunnel paired with the 6x24 Phresh filter. With this set up, you can simply open your lower vents and the resulting inverse pressure will draw plenty of fresh air in.
Hello Greners, I would like to run the 6x24 phresh filter and a 6" wind tunnel and duct it through a xxxl hood to cool it. I'll be running a 1000 watt hps. My temps outside the tent are low 70's. Will this set up work with this tent, or will I need to cool the hood independently? Thanks your help. Josh
from my personal experience with 1000w systems it is always better to cool the hood independently due to the amount of heat generated by them
i have the dr15011 i use a sunleaf inline fan for the intake what size fan would you recommend for the exhaust i have two 400 watt hps both are in the same hood the large adjust a wing they are the best hoods i have ever used thank for your time
I would go with either a 6 inch or and 8 inch exhaust fan
I have a 6" vortech fan for exhaust, what type of intake fan would you recommend for the DR150 or is passive intake sufficient?
I actually have a dr150 in my home right now for some testing purposes, under a t5 the room is in it's low 70s and with passive intake an a 473 cfm exhaust fan, its staying at like 76-79, if your running 600w hps or higher a smaller cfm fan will be sufficient for intake.
i wanted to know on a dr-150 the two small vents can they be open during light time?
yes you can open them during day time but I would advise against free flowing air with out prefilters or some sort of smaller microfiber screen(if you want to go super cheap, a pair of pantie hose cut and duct tape to the right spots works as a filter as well(not a great filter) but better then no filter at all
I would like to exhaust and filter the air from both the dr150 and dr90 using one fan\filter set up. I'm running a 1000 hps in a 6" xxxl in the dr150 and a 400 mh in a " radiant in the dr 90. I am independently cooling the 1000 hps with a 6" windtunnel and also independently cooling the 400 mh with a 4" active air. What size fan do I need to exhaust the tents?
I would exhaust with an 8" Fan - 720 CFM by Active Air here is the link http://www.greners.com/active-air-in-line-fans-12in-966cfm.html
Is the Secret Jardin Dark Room Pro DR150 II Grow Tent fireproof, light tight, and smell proof?
The Secret Jardin Dark Room Pro DR150 II Grow Tent is light tight and completely smell proof but is not fireproof. I would recommend getting a Flame Defender Fire Extinguisher which we have here on our site which would eliminate any chance of a fire arising.
Are the access port diameters adjustable or will i have to buy reducers?
All of the access ports are adjustable so you are able to run any sized ducting with Secret Jardin grow tents.
Does the DR150 II Grow Tent hold heat well enough in order to keep my grow space warm during lights out?
The Secret Jardin Grow Tents are hands down our best overall tent, especially with light tightness and ability to maintain temperature. If you do find yourself having an issue with temperature, you may want to add in a small space heater or even heat your grow area by use of water and a heated reservoir/pump.
What air cooled reflector would fit within this grow tent with excellent light efficiency and also be able to have a carbon filter within the tent?
I would recommend the Blockbuster 6" Reflector with the Goblin Charcoal Filter! http://www.greners.com/i/fans-ventilation-filters/filters-odor/carbon-filters/charcoal-filter-goblin-and-elf.html http://www.greners.com/blockbuster-reflector-6-reflector.html
Would the Sun Blaze T5 Fixtures - 4 Foot -8-Tube be adequate for a 4' x 4' grow space?
You could get away with the Sun Blaze T5 Fixtures - 4 Foot -8-Tube but I would personally use the Quantum T5 BadBoy Fixtures - 4 Foot -16-Tube! http://www.greners.com/i/grow-lights/fluorescent-grow-lights/t5-fixtures/quantum-badboy-t5-fixtures.html
