I'm soo close to being done.
I drilled the holes for the power cords and for the wires that go from the drivers to the heatsink.
You can see the bigger hole for the power cords, and obviously the power cords with the braided wire sleeve that came in today. It's a pretty clean look if I do say so myself. But once I get a reef keeper, I will be able to run all 4 drivers off one single power cord, I just have 4 separate cords right now because I will have each one on an individual timer for the sunrise/sunset and moon light cycle.
I was able to run power to all drivers. I tested the white and blue today cus I wanted to mess with the dimming
When dimmed as low as it can go, I believe the potentiometers only take them to 20% power, so when I say 20%... That's as dim as I can make them lol
White and blue both at 100%
White at 100% and blue at 20%
Blue at 100% and white at 20%
And white and blue at 20% ... The camera adjusted so pics wont show a difference between 20 and 100%
And as you can see, I have a single red LED
wired with the white for color enhancement. I was curious so I figures I would add it
I'm sooo close to being done.I did hold it over the tank tonight just to get a little tease of what it's gonna look like.... I'm beyond amazed... I can't wait until I get the colors tweaked perfectly. It's gonna look amazing.. And the shimmer is awesome. I've never had the shimmer effect, that's exciting.
Anyways. Yea. I'm almost done with this project. It's about time too... It's been 2 months since I first ordered this kit..... But I'm looking forward to building another one for my 100 gallon... That should be a piece of cake since I'll go with solderless. As long as I get everything I'm supposed to at once. It should only take me a couple days to get finished.
