30 watts a square foot, u have 8 sq feet - so a 240 true watt led would work, but you would be running at 100% IMO I would do 2- 150’s or bigger and dim them
I know you said 240 bt do you think a 200 will works i found one that look pretty good what do you think ?

Almoat all Led at 240w will grow great buds. The difference will be the heat, warranty and overall quality and life of the fixture. Probably a good idea to list budget to help ppl suggest a light.

The footprint also needs to be considered for light spread. It does no good to have a light that you can't max out because the middle is burning and the sides get to little. A 2x4 will do best with something designed for that footprint or 2 single lower wattage fixtures IMO.
