Have you looked at the Fluval 3.0 lights?

For my large tank that's currently on hold, research was leading me that way. Obviously I can't make any recommendations.

I was looking into them but wasn’t sure about par levels on a tank that big or the spectrum

Just threw that out as a starting point. I was looking at two for the 120g I had in mind to get high light at the substrate, but that tank is 6" wider and 4" deeper than a standard dimension 75g. I don't have the PAR charts on hand unfortunately.

Mounting lights from the ceiling wasn't an option, which ruled out a lot of powerful pendant lights; the Fluvals seemed to be the best of the remaining options, though I've recently seen a negatively-titled thread here.
