Yeah that should be sufficient if they are in a row but may I suggest....

The reflector will make a big difference. It's essentially the same light as you posted, plus the reflector.

But this would work for a while? Atleast until i can get it rigged up. Maybe ill see about taking the casing off and making a reflector.. from foil or something

I was also going to suggest making a reflector. 2000 L is enough as long as most of it his hitting your plants.
