Autoflower Grow with Solar Storm 440

Hello All,
I'm new to the forum. I've just acquired a Solar Storm 440 through the Growers Feedback Program (GFP). My grow will feature at least 2 and possibly 3 different autoflower strains. The strains are Barney's Farm Tangelo Rapido, Pyramid Auto Lennon and the third will be either Barney's Farm Pineapple Express or Pyramid's Auto Tutankhamon. All of these strains offer high CBD to THC ratios.
Some of the goals I have for this grow include: demonstrating the effectiveness of the 440 and the relative ease of growing autoflowers under LED's. I'm gearing this grow and discussion towards new and novice growers and those that are interested in autoflowers and LED's.
This will be my second grow using LED's and autoflowers. My previous grow was done under LED's from a different manufacturer. I grew Auto Purple from Pyramid Seeds using a Deep Water Culture Hydro (DWC) set up. The lights I used were 100 watt Led's and 2 - 23 watt UVB florescents. I started with 1 LED and added another when flowering began. As you can see from the pictures, it came out okay. It yielded almost 5 ounces of cured bud. However, the taste and smell weren't quite there and the buds were not as compact in the lower areas of the plant.
This grow will be in Promix HP soil. I'm hoping for better light penetration to the lower areas, better taste and comparable or better yield. As the grow progresses I'll provide more specific details on soil composition, nutrients and etc.
