I have no idea about LED lighting... but have moved your thread into VividLED's sponsor forum so they see it easier :)

Given the small area I reckon the 150w Hlg Quantum board would be about perfect in there. Low heat and small size makes it ideal to stick at the top of the cabinet leaving more room for fans and such :)

I'd go with B or R spec buddy and they all come with dimming as standard. That model external dimming as standard. So no real need to spec up any more options. Although I do offer with remote mounted driver which allows for even cooler running and less weight to hang also lower profile so less head height lossed.

Oh and thinking about it I have just got in stock the very latest HLG 648plus boards also. I'd need to test for driver compatibility but potentially you could order one of those. Capable of upto 3umol/watt. The kit would be £50 more though with that board as they have 666 diodes per board and cost me a small fortune sadly.

No problem here to help, let me do a little testing first and I'll let you know. If you do go for that board you'll be one of the first in the world to have one as HLG haven't even officially released them yet buddy. Genuinely world leading levels of efficacy.
