I have read in other threads that Matrix II 6x54w and 8x54w fixture share the same body and width. There seems to be some discrepancy on the dimensions of these fixtures between CoralVue, BRS, Giesemann and Premium Aquatics. Are they still both 17.5" wide or has that changed?

Honestly, I am not positive so I have sent a few emails out to inquire on the correct measurements to play it safe. I will post here with what I find out. :dance:

Ok, I just heard back. The measurements on our site and Giesemann's site are correct. :beer:

Well, the width dimensions on BRS and Giesemann websites do not match. BRS states the 6 bulb fixture is 17.5" wide where as Geisemann site states 60cm, which is 24". Also the picture on your guy's website shows the Matrixx 6-bulb with two empty reflectors on each side as if it is a 8 bulb fixture minus two bulbs.

Oops, my apologies. I will get that changed. The measurements on Giesemann's site is correct - I had thought that is where we took our info from. My apologies for the confusion!

Thank you. I think the confusion comes from giesemann's own website as they list different dimensions for the same fixture:

This page states 435mm for 6 and 8 bulb versions.

This one states 60cm width for the 6-bub model???

Can you please tell which page is actually right?

I have an inquiry in direct to Giesemann to confirm which page is correct. I looked for a return that I could measure but unfortunately we don't have any returned. :spin3:

Ok, I just heard back from Giesemann. The correct dimensions are:

Matrixx 4 T-5 width 260mm = 10.2"

Matrixx 6/8 T-5 width 435 mm = 17.1"

The green graph you are seeing here (http://aquaristik.giesemann.de/689,2,MATRIXX%20Technische%20Daten%20,.html) is the recommended tank dimensions.

My apologies for the confusion, I hope this helps clear everything up.

Does BRS carry the white and black version or just the black?
