*most* lights only push about 1/2 the possible voltage through the LEDs.

A safe assumption would be [225 x 3 = 675 / 2 = 337.5]
Then round down and say you have a 300w (draw) fixture.

my *GUESS* is that one of those fixtures could flower a 2'6" x 2'6" space

with proper spacing, I'd say 4 of them could do a 5' x 5' nicely

I would think that a reputable light maker would post the actual draw of the light. Like Joe said, they almost never draw a full 100 percent.

A 700W LED that he purchased for $160? Where was that happening? What brand are they? That is very very inexpensive for an LED that size.....

are they are powerful enough? yes
are they the correct spectrum? ???


I think we all ***-u-me(d) it was a LED grow light.

without a link to the light or more info, no one can answer that.
