Yeah pretty much and also bulb selection comes into play as well. You can go for a high PUR setup with UVL Red Sun, Wave Point Ultra Cola, etc. and hang the light lower. You also don't want the light...

2x Radion XR15FW's have all the control you want and super easy to setup and right in between the E-series and BML at $600. The ecotech light control software is also light years ahead of those two.
