Radion help!

Ok, so I really want led lights. I know the radions have awesome features, and I really want them. I have a 150g thats 6' long and 28" high. Could I get by with 2 units keeping sps only at the top??? If I hang them higher to get more spread and turn them to 100% wouldn't that be ok?

Does anyone know about this? 2 over a tank on 100% raised pretty high up so the spread covers the whole tank. I just want to know because if I can do it with two in gonna save up probably and if not, I'm not going to. And btw, to the mods, if this should be in general equipment could you move it there? I don't want to post a duplicate.

Well, i have 2 over my 55... so that would be an addition of 2 feet...in all reality you could pull it off. They are way powerful. 15 inches above my water level and i still have them at 10% power w/ sps in the sandbed.

Can you confirm the 10% power? How deep is your tank. No way my sps would do ok in that situation. I've got it to 75% and the sps are at least in the middle/top.

I'll grab a laptop and hook them up tomorrow after work and double check. It won't let me turn them down anymore but I can turn them up. Either way at 100% power I see no reason why this wouldn't work.

I have 2. I mean having someone else who has them. I don't know anyone else who does that I talk to and I'd love to talk about messing with artificial mode.
