Hi all,

My stand is 5'Lx2'D. I'm trying to figure out how much LED lighting I'll need to light up the interior of the stand.

I'm looking at:

- 3W, equal to 30W halogen (each bar)
- 300 lumen per panel

... wondering if 3 light bars (900 lumens) will do it or if I should up it to 6 (1800 lumens)?

What sort of sump area lighting do you have?

Thanks for any insight,
J

I would think there would be plenty. My stand is 6' in length and use four 'hockey puck' style under cabinet lights. It's plenty of light and I probably only needed 3.
