Default Lighting Question? Gavita?

So my buddy is running 2 1000watt Gavitas where he use to have 4 1000watt standard HPS. Is explanation to me was that you can keep the Gavitas much farther away from the plants which means a larger foot print, which in turn means you can fit more plants under each light. More plants equals more buds.

However, when I pressed him as to why you could do this with these lights. What about them is different that they can be so far away from the plants yet still be effective, etc., etc.? He didn't really have any answers.

So can anyone give me the story on these lights and why they're better? What's different about them? He kept saying they were the "double ended" bulbs.

Here's a pic.

Gravity lights are far more intense than an hps.You need to keep them much farther away from plants.They are not air cooled so you have to deal with room temps.Sealed room better.The growth yield and plant structure is far better.I have seen many rooms with gravitas.A friend of mine running kush strains for medical reasons would yield 1.3 lbs per light with hps.With gravitas 2.1lbs.Same room same strain only difference gavita lighting.In northern Cali they can't keep them in stock everyone and their brother switching to them.With doubled ended bulb your build never sags causing uneven reflection.I can't really explain the science behind them but in the real world they are best grow light on market.Peace Danklabs

Also more plant don't equal more buds.Too many plants effect air flow bring to much moisture to room.A full canopy is a full canopy.When your plants feel another plant to close they just grow straight up Dont branch out.The key to a good yield is not over crowding your room,having good air flow and air exchange and the most important is a good healthy root base more roots is more fruits.Without a good foundation you can give them all they bloom boosters you want and all your doing is wasting money."Love the Plant".Peace Danklabs

Thanks for the info and you make excellent points. Always have to find where that balance is between all those factors.
