Hi just need some advice on a small led build I intend on doing. I currently have 4 t5's 54w( 2 ati Blue plus, 2 Purple +) over my 4ft. Due to bulb costs, want to run 2 t5's only and supplement it with leds.

Thinking of using about 52 3w leds. with 4 channels using 4 meanwell ldd700h drivers with a tc420 controller.
Power Supply Box 12V 30A 360W (for future additions)

10x Aquamarine 3W Extreme Cool White LED chip - 20000K
10x Aquamarine 3W Extreme Cool White LED chip - 15000K
10x Bridgelux 3W Warm White Grow LED chip 3000-3500K
2x Bridgelux 3W blue 440-450nm
18x Bridgelux 3W royal blue
2x 3W Aquamarine Extreme Green LED chip - 515 - 525nm

Wrt mounting, would a simple heatsink suffice? Also are the drivers and led colour combination correct?
Thanks

I am also using 10w, and then I tone it down to 50%, controller can be set to any time of configuration

Using a tc420 and 10w led you going to have to add a 2.2 ohm resistor to each led due to the forward voltage and milliamps of each led. Search the site or pm me and I will gladly assist.
