Also take into account fixture size as well. A narrow tank will increase PAR vs a wide one with a SAT+ but it will be the same thing if you have a wide tank with a wide fixture.

Both the 360 and 160 are brand new so "outdated" doesn't apply.

OP the 360 will be considerably stronger than the 150 but it's dimmable so you can tone it down. 360 allows for upgrade later on if...

Move the warm whites closer to the cluster. That will fix the spotlighting.

PAR isn't the end all be all. One can also go high PUR instead of high PAR and be able to grow even better looking plants.
