I am thinking a 3x3 or 4x4 tent.
It will be a winter grow.
I am just trying to buy things ahead of time.

Imo, if you really want a good deal from HLG I would look at their 4 packs of boards

A 3x3 tent is going to be around 270 watts or a 4x4 around 480 watts.

The above is more DIY oriented but with a Meanwell driver that they suggest or you could contact them to size an Inventronics driver which is lower priced than Meanwell. 8-12 would be ideal for a 4x4.

Also depends on your budget.

so here are my choices for lights.
Again this is a winter grow of autoflowers, just trying to get everything early.
I will be using a 4x4 tent.
Which in your opinion of light would be best?
How many lights would I need for a 4x4 tent?
I was thinking maybe 2 each of whatever light I choose.
I know these lights are not the best out there.
I was thinking maybe 2 of the 260w QB260 lights for a 4x4 tent?

The HLG is going to cost you a lot to cover the tent. The 260w is decently priced but I don't see a PPFD chart to say much more.

I would go with the second choice with two of them

2 Electric Sky either 180w or 300w is what I'd say. My 180w v2 is amazing and I had to keep raising my light because the power. Dimming capabilities, great company out of oregon. I'd recommend hands down.

Thank you for the reply.
I just looked at the lights, seems to be alittle out of my price range.
I grow just for a hobby, so really not looking to go crazy.
