Radions and coral color

So, I have had my radions on my tank for some time. I have done lots of experimenting and even have a thread up on Ecotech's forum on this subject. Basically it sounds like everyone is running their radions 8 inches above the water at around 65-75% power at peak power.

The color of some of my corals is lacking. I have full polyp extension, but some of them are dull in color.

So here is where I am, I have once again messed with the Radions from a tip that switching from 14k to 20k will address this issue...but they are LEDs. From all I've known is that for LEDs it is just the coloration. Am I wrong here?

Anyone else with Radions have this issue or think of correctives here?
