Hi BarraCuda,
So we need the Power supply to be connected to the drivers .
And the driver connected to the led.

So far you are using Luxeon V, Cree-XR-E and Luxeon K2.
How many of each?

Lastly I saw LED panel for horti selling on the internet.
Do you think it is advisable to invest in them?

I also forgetten how many I'm using, total about 150watts of them. check what kind of LEDs they are using for the panel, if its those 5mm,8mm,10mm LEDs then forget it.

Personally I feel that 150watts of LEDs are not sufficient enough. Maybe adding another 100watts will be better.
