This discussion is about the Duo Extreme, which is a high end light. They’re $750, so a little less than Radions. I think the previous poster was joking about stock in the company being cheap.
They compare to the G4 pro, which is another $100, right? Also, doesn’t G4 still require a WiFi Director?

They have 72 diodes (216 watts), so they are more powerful than G4 pros, which have 46 (190 watts). The Duo Deluxe for $650 is more comparable to Radions as they have 48 diodes (lower wattage though at 144 watts).

These have built in WiFi, and I am not sure about Radions.

They sound like a much better product to me.

Let me reiterate - I have no financial interest in any aquarium-related business. My test results tell it like it is!

I'm probably the most technically-challenged person when it comes to WiFi controls. But after a couple of questions, the programming on the ReeFi is a snap. Love it!

Would love to see this LED fixture in person.

Not sure where you are located, but I believe there is currently one over a display tank at the Cuttlefish and Corals store in Portland, OR.

EDIT: Oops, now I see you're in GA. They are assembled in Atlanta, so perhaps they'll make an appearance in your neighborhood.

But who hangs their lights 3” above the water???
I wouldn't - not with these lights. Too intense. When testing I will hang the lights at a height to achieve a PAR of about 175-200 on the bottom, which of course will increase the spread. Hence I think 2 might do it but if I knew for sure it would save me a lot of time and effort while testing.
 

Have you ever used a spoon, hose and rubber band together to remove algae?
