I'm thinking about this layout for future build.
There will be two of these over a 28 gallon bow front
Total leds 30
8 cool white
10 royal blue
Now my question is what would be the best way to power this. I would like all colors to dim individualy.
Also would one long heatsink be better then two seperate ones.
Also wanted to know if it would get to hot inside a old obit light fixture with added fans.
You're thinking a little too closely to the Radion, but you can get much better than that.
If you stick with CREE as your base:
4x XM-L neutral white (cool will look blah) @ 3A
16x XT-E royal blue @ 1A
10x 3-up stars from LEDGroupBuy (one neutral white, two XT-E royal blue) @ 1A
4x OCW (deep red, cool blue, and turquoise on one star) @ 700ma (dimmed lower, these can't handle heat)
8x violet @ 700ma (dimmed lower, these like to burn out at 650ma+)
Cluster each XM-L with four XT-E, along with one OCW and two violet.
If you want an alternative, I would suggest Luxeon Rebel ES:
10x Rebel ES neutral white @ 1A
15x Rebel ES royal blue @ 1A
5x Rebel ES cool blue @ 1A
4x Rebel ES deep red @ 700ma
4x Rebel ES cyan @ 1000ma
8x violet @ 700ma (still dimmed, Philips doesn't make violets)
Cluster two Rebel ES white with three royals and a cool blue, and you can cluster the red, cyan, and violet together across the rest of the heatsink.
As far as drivers go, Milad @ LEDGroupBuy sells only Inventronics. They are quality drivers, but they are very expensive. For my build, it would cost over $350 in drivers alone, and I paid that for my entire fixture, using all Rebel ES LEDs. Drivers are from Steve's LEDs, they are custom built for running these type of LEDs and all have PWM control for use with a controller. The drivers use DC input, so you need a power supply to run them, but Steve sells those as well, and they are Meanwell units, and they are high quality as well.
