Which Finnex for long and shallow tank ?

I have a custom tank on order, it will be 482L and 18"W, but only 14" deep. Figuring in the substarte, I'm looking at 11" of water. Plan is to grow at least medium plants, with most of the back half well covered with plants. CO2 and ferts are on hand.

I can see right off the bat that a 48" Ray II would be too much. So I'm looking at either the regular FugeRay or the Planted+. Extrapolating from the 24" data for the regular FugeRay and Planted+ data, a 48" Planted+ would land me well above 120 PAR. If I get one of those, I would probably have to raise it...by how much ?
Would a regular FugeRay do the job better ?

Humans may rule the world...but bacteria run it..
