with the TS 3000 I like actual wattage draw for the coverage especially for autos that I grow, but if i was to do photoperiods i would like to try it under at least 2 sp 250,s if not 3
What is your actual draw? I am drawing 239 and 237. I am approaching 4 weeks with 7 GSC extreme autos and they look pretty good so far. I will include a pic for an opinion. The small plant in the middle had a bit of trouble with the seed coat at the start but looking pretty good now. I am not sure I could run a third sp250 without having heat problems. It has crossed my mind though. Wish Mars made a red booster as some other manufacturers do but I am getting way ahead of myself here.

I figure I should finish one grow first before making any assumptions. Lol.

TS 3000 says 450 then each SP 250 draws 245(X2) so 490 watts but you get more light pen and i like to flatten autos so the ts with less canopy penetration would be good for them but the sp 250 further penetration into the canopy is better IMHO for photo periods stretches which would allow for an improved uniformity of bud down the cola

Bang on the money mate. a little.more penetration would have made mine perfect but i started in Hps and switched mid grow to Led , forgot about extra calmag needs so held their yield back sadly too. I run 2 TSL-2000 and want to supplement with an sp250 for central penetration and a 6x6 canopy in flower. The TSL-2000 makes solid buds too. scrog would be amazing with it.

I didn't weigh them wet. Is that a number you would use for something? I will be sure to update when they are dry. I would say they looked a whole lot fatter then my first outdoor grow.
Thanks a lot Budlite, we have more confidence in our products with your positive feedbacks. :D

Yes, definitely! SP -250 with better penetration, while TS wider coverage. :) Choose the one based your own need. ;)
