For my lights I wanted to do my own hybrid. I had and loved a old TEK light back in the day so I went on the hunt for one. Found an awesome reefer from BAR that had a unit and donated it to my build for free! Bonus, he even ended up finding the legs for the unit which were rare and even harder to find. Just like the stand it was in good shape but needed to be sorted out correctly. So, after I gutted it and threw away the ballasts, I sent it off to be sand blasted and power coated the same satin black as my stand at Applied Coatings in Lodi, Ca.
I wanted to run 4 T5's over driven and 3w LED's in a 14k look that I could control to achieve both growth and color. I went with an icecap 660 to overdrive 3 ATI blue plus bulbs paired with a purple plus along with 48 3w LED with 60 degree optics from RapidLED in a 50/50 blue/white format powered by a dimmable ballast through APEX. Lastly, Apex's controllable moon LED's to mock our lunar schedule.
