First timer here! I need help with a couple things for my ventilation system. The tent I’m getting needs an extractor fan that’s 130cfm or about 220 m3/h, whilst im in the vegetative stage will I need to have my extractor and intake fan on a lower cfm?
recently i wanted to just buy a pre-kit from a grow shop for my first grow but then people told me that if I made the kit myself i would pay way less (which makes sense). So i did lots of research in the last couple of days and came up with this. Would be really grateful if some...

Hi everyone ive decided to swap back to hps rather than my leds ( 2 300w and 1 600w mars 5w white models). This is due to the heat these units give off in my 1m area , watts used (580w actual draw roughly) and lack of spread/penetration. I had already upgraded the fans in all lights with units...

I won't be able to purchase one for a while, but does anyone know of a cheap(!) fan or blower that can move at least 270 CFM through the restriction of a carbon filter and moderate associated ducting? 6" or 4" only, please. Thanks!
I'm not so sure I'm really understanding the ventilation/CFM calculation. I'm using a 2x2x4 tent and according to the LxWxH calc. I would only need a fan rated for 16 CFM, which just seems absurdly low. I have this tent set up in my basement which is unfinished and more or less an open layout...
