Hey Dave,

Just wondering when you think the next batch is going out? Super excited! Can't wait. I'm going top notch on all the equipment on this build. Hopefully I can make something 1/2 as polished looking in my tank as you have done with your lights.

Unfortunely I moved and this tank came down. But just started a new tank and using the same nanobox

 

 

Is this DUO on a 24" frame? If it is , i would like to know more about this light for my CAD34g.

Hmm. The tank is 30x16x16, a bit long for the Duo, so you'd probably want the quad.

You won't be disappointing if you went with the Quad. :)

 

 

 

 

Figure I would post this here. Will update once I have the conduit painted.

Woah... Thats awesome!!!

 

Does the fixture heat up at your maximum intensity? Or do the heatsink/fans keep it cool?

That was the most confusing product name Dave's ever had :lol: It was called the 'Duo 24' or '24" Duo' but it had four arrays in a 24" housing. This is why I kept pushing him to call it a Quad :lol:

He's not the only one to have a 36" enclosure...

But mine was a little bit custom

Had roughly 275w of LEDs in it, and the housing was very warm to the touch. Dave limits his arrays to ~26w each, so six of them is right around 150-160w total at full tilt, so it will get warm to the touch, but this is the design (the enclosure is aluminum and acts as a part of the heatsink),

As Jedi said, if I have everything at 100% it does get warm to the touch, but at the current max/midday settings for the tank, it stays cold to the touch.

I absolutely love the light though. Fits the tank perfectly. I need to get an updated picture, waiting on a part before I take the pipe down to paint them, along with the wait for the diatom bloom to settle down.

That LED layout looks like artwork. I remember seeing the picture of the 36" enclosure of your thread, but never got to the point of the actual build process for it. I need to go search for it again.

Just shoot Dave a PM, you can get anything extra that you want just about. Just costs a little more. He is great to work with!

All of the Nanobox fixtures are available in 2, 4, or 5 channel (the fifth being a dedicated moonlight).

It was super sexy, and while I love my Nanobox arrays, there was just a little something extra I got from that setup, so I'm going back to something similar. :)

 

Here is a gif of how that array turned out :)

What are your settings, or is that pic just camera magic
