Default Honda ?

Just curious has anyone ran 4-150 watt hps on a 1000 watt Honda? Like most I'm running the 2000 but can't help but wonder if the 1000 is quieter or if it runs wide open making it the same or worse.

I have no mathematical science behind this, but I'm guessing the noise level is going to be about the same?

I have 1000 watt and 2000 watt. 1000 WILL run 4 x 150. But it is running a bit high rpm. The 2000 is a bit above idle. Fuel useage about the same. The 2000 will last longer, cause it is not working as hard. If the 1000 is all you got, then I would run it. Kinda like motor: better to have a bit in reserve, than be running at 80 percent capacity. Just my 2 cents worth
