With most of us still wanting a LED light project of some sort, one of the only routes to go is the do-it-yourself option. Yamato decided to take it upon himself to construct a LED light fixture from scratch and he did a great job of it as he says in his words:
My dream to build a LED light for a pico is finally coming true. After reading countless other make this jump, I am excited to give this a go. I ordered the LEDs from LEDsupply two weeks ago. I was able to purchase two drivers and powersupply from a member on NR. So I am waiting on those, but as I wait, I am going to see what would be the best configuration for my precious LEDs… So my order from LEDsupply finally came! I am happy to report that the order was correct and that the package was shipped well packed and the transaction was very smooth. I am still waiting on the Power supply and Buckpuck drivers (hoping he sent potentiameters…). But since I have to wait, this might be a good thing since I need to configure how to set the LEDs. So I have
2 clear white Q4 Cree XRE LEDs, 3 Royal blues. I want pretty good coverage since my display tank measure 6″x9″.
