Am I correct?

This 48" 2-bulb T5HO retro-kit that I'm about to mount in my canopy would be considered medium light correct?

2x 54w with individual reflectors 5" above and standard 75g with 3" of substrate.

Based on the par measurement threads I've read, and personal experience with the same setup, it would really be considered 'medium-high to high' light. But it also depends on the manufacturer of the kit. If you are shooting for medium light, you might want to raise the light a bit higher maybe.
