4 x 55w PL-L CFL Bulbs ok for veg?

I was at a boot sale over the weekend and noticed a pair of PowerPlant Sun Mate Propagating Lights. the man only wanted £10 for both so i bought them.

 

They are working and are fitted with 4 x Philiphs Master PL-L 55w 840 bulbs

these are rated at 4800 Lumens and 4000k

 

So my veg tent is 80cm x 80cm by 1.2m

Are these enough to veg?

 

Are the 4 x 4000k ok for veg or i can get a pair of 3000k bulbs to make a better spectrum? so i could have 2 x 4000k and 2 x 3000k

thx mate,

do you think its enough power for the area?

it would be 220w and 19k lumens.

 

Been trying to find more info on these bulbs, from what i gather these are similar to a T5 bulb but 'folded' so 1 of these bulbs are supposed to be similar to 2 x 24w T5 bulbs, so 4 would be similar to 8 x 24w T5 bulbs
