The back will have large cutouts resembling
(Ignore the periods, I used them as spacers) to promote circulation throughout the hood. The front will have the same cutouts. The sides will have a place for 2 3" fans on the left, and the right side will have 3 very small slits to allow air to escape. The top will consist of 3 boards (1x6s) with small gaps in between to allow for more heat dissipation/condensation prevention. I could put the workhorses on the back, one on each side...with the setup, do you think this is a good idea? I will mount the MH
ballasts in the stand. Do I need any air cirulation for the ballasts, or do they not get very hot? Just for reference's sake, the stand is made of particle board, and I have reinforced all corners and joints with 2x4s. Thanks fishfreek!
The diagram looks bad, as per the usual. Just slide the second line in about 2 spaces and that's about how it is. I can make a diagram if anyone needs/would like to see it.[/edit]
