315 Cmh footprint

Just got 5x 315 cmh for 8.5ft x 13.5 ft room. The guy in the shop said its what I need but after seeing a diary or 2, I'm starting to think I need more?

Well for a start I'd imagine you'd need an even number to cover the room properly?

 

But never the less I can assure you 5 will not be enough to cover a room that's 2.5 x 4 meters.

 

They are great lights 100%, but large coverage isn't really they're thing IME, even some of the claims from the companies that make them raise my eyebrows.

 

But again I'm certain 5 will not cover 10 m2, not by quite a margin. That's 2 m2 per light, my Dimlux 1000w de wont cover that.

Depends on the reflector type, I use maxibright focus reflectors which give you about 75cm squared, so I use 16 in a 3m x 3m. 
 

In your space & with those reflectors I’d go 3 by 5 (15 lamps). 
 

Good luck.
