Default Regency panels quality?? Use different brand controller OK?

I have one samlex 100 watt panel. I can squeeze two 160 watt Regency panels in.......(and remove the 100 watt samlex).......the samlex controller is a 30amp. Any problem using it? Are regency quality units?

Thank, Jack.

At best the Regency panels combined won't exceed 15 amps, (in parallel), so the controller should be quite adequate.

If you're planning to put them in series, then the controller would need to be able to handle 45 volts on its input.
