    so the QB pulls 65 Watts and in the description it says 1’x2’ which is what I have, but from what I read you need at least 100watts, should I get the larger 100 HLG, or just buy another 65 HLG and have two or is the 65 watt enough

    Do you already own a 65qb? If so I'd just get another one. Your room is 3.8sqft(14x32)so two 65 qb would put you at 34w per sqft, as long as my maths right.

    I get 3.11 square feet, but my math could be off too.

    OP, if you have the room and the money, another QB120 would definitely help in that size space.

    I’m addition to the 65watt or replace?

    In addition. Your 65 watt light is a QB120, so I'm suggesting you run two.

    I would do two of the 65's - it will give you a better spread.

    i was looking at the same bored and was wondering what is more important spectrum or intensity of light for example if you run a blue/red spectrum light that's 600w vs a QB running 60w but has a real full spectrum what would produce the bigger bud

    Don't compare 60w vs 600w...
    it is like u compare the best bicycle with worst automobile...

    I would buy another HLG 65, in your case...

    Ofc this is an option to... HLG65 alone will do the work, for your space

    Whats your Spectrum? Mine's 3K and i'm actually sending it back. I emailed them about getting an extra one and they said growers with 3K's were experiencing Iron Deficiencies in flower which is what i've been dealing with so, hopefully the 4K that they're sending me on that works.

    That’s good, I think there was something wrong with the last light, the one they sent me seems brighter. Happy Growing
