I am a reef keeper (some of you reefers on here may recognize me), but because of time and money constraints, I'm taking down my tanks (grad school mess).
I have an LED array (8 Cree XRE in royal blue) that I think I'm going to change over to an all-white (XPG).
The Meanwell should be able to easily drive 13 XPG at 1300mA.
I do have a 10K pot as a dimmer.
Anyhow, I would like to convert this into one monster reading light. Any given semester I typically read 1500 to 4000 pages in grad school and would like something I can dim.
I'm a carpenter/cabinet maker so I can build pretty much any enclosure I want.
BUT I NEED SOME IDEAS!
The heatsinks I have are from heatsinkusa.com and are 24" long, 2" wide. I have two of them and can cut them any way I want, I'll probably make a 8X12 array.
