Hey guys thank you for viewing this if you did! I have a 6x4x 8 foot tall flower room i made out of 2x2s and panda film plastic. this is connected to my 4x4x8 veg room made the same. but this post is for the flower room in which I am running a 1000 watt hps 6 inch cool tube on a digital ballast outside of the room. i am going to be using dwc to grow. i bought a 4 inch hurricane fan because it was what i could afford at the time. i have been planning and buying and constructing for ayear now and am down to my last detail! what carbon filter to use and what size. My first grow will be barneys farm vanilla kush. Anyyyyyy advice will be taken with the highest regard i have no one to talk to as this is a stealth operation :thanks:

No prob going bigger
You may want to look into a fan speed control also
Mine is controlled by a tstat and will slow down or shutoff 10* below set point depending on the setting
I just run ventech priced right and fairly quiet but for my setup that isn't a necessity

I have a thermostat already, great minds must think alike. ha-ha jk, but I am just concerned with the smell. My Goal was to have everything done, finished, completed, and/or a variant their of before I even start to grow anything. So far I've stuck to that I just need a an Exhaust filter, I have the intake already. Its just their are just so many to choose from I don't know where to begin! I want longevity, affordability, and quality which goes hand in hand with piece of mind, when I don't have to be scared to death I'm stinking. Thank you for your help Highpotanoose I appreciate it very much.
