It would mean that with both knobs turned all the way up, you are going to get a 14k look. with the whites turned down a bit you would get a higher k look, and vice versa. I just ordered one of these. I'll report my findings.

Ok. Order and Paypal invoice was paid on Jan. 3rd to Reefbreeders. No tracking number or "shipped" notice as of yet. I asked for a tracking number on the 6th and I got "What is your paypal email, and what did you order." back. I replied with that info and haven't heard back yet.
Just a FYI.

I just read through this thread and I too only have 4 bulb t5 HO system. I'm interested in upgrading to these lights but I have a 55 g tank. Would I need two of these systems since it doesn't stretch across the 48"? It only seems like they can be hung. Can anyone find 48" with this system that mounts on top of the tank?

Yes, you would need 2 of them. The new vendor AQ-LED sells longer units. Check him out too.

Na. 2 of them is plenty. I use 1 every 2 feet of tank and it lights perfect. My tank is also 25" deep.

I know it says for freshwater but is there a huge difference? It's not dimmable but...
