Welcome to the website guide of the Eket V2 build video guide.
With two separate chambers this build can do continuous supply in a very small package.
This guide is done with a small and a big eket, but you could do it with two large ones to allow longer vegging, in this case you can do the second eket for vegging with just 2 panels instead of 4.
The normal power usage for this build is below 50w total, which means less than $5/month for veg (4€) and $3/month in bloom (3€).
The new cardboard compression chamber of the blower allows for a quieter build and makes the carbon filter setup much simpler.
(The attachements below are also downloadable throughout the guide)
This is another "innovation" introduced in this build, previously we'd simply attach the blower to the back of the box, while relatively simple to do, it had a major problem: noise. Placing it inside helps a lot.
In this guide we'll show how to attach the blower inside the box, while taking as little space as possible 👌

It's now time to use the small eket carboard box you didn't destroy in step 1 ;)
Print the pattern and use double sided tape to stick it on the cardboard piece.
SGL's secret recipe for double sided tape:
cut a small piece of regular tape and join the 2 ends leaving the sticky part on the outside; voilá DIY double sided tape xD
Go ahead and cut through the plain lines.
DO NOT cut through dashed lines, only make an incision for easier bending.
Gently bend along the incised cuts
Tape everything in place to give it it's final form.
You know the drill; hold everything in place with double sided tape.
Cut the inner blue line.
Keep the strip to avoid reprinting the pattern later.
Cut out the circle which will be the exhaust of the unit & separate the carboard pieces.
Keep the pattern to avoid having to reprint it later.
It's easier if you hold them in place with a small piece of tape first.
The final touch is sealing both parts together with aluminium tape.
Gluing the blower to the cardboard is the last step; make sure it seals well all around.
Ok, the ventilation unit is made; here's how to** install it and the carbon filter too!**
