For the 1.2 x 1.2m tent you would want 480w of light to replace 600w of HID. There are now other options for lower wattage LED lights but the price increases dramatically. For the 1.2 x 1.2 id go with 2 x F Bars from Invisible Sun LED or ISH 530. These come in 2 types each, one is more efficient than the other but again the price goes up.

For the 2m x 2m its tricky, lights these days are made for 1.2x.1.2 or 1.5x.1.5 areas. If money is not an issue then id go with 4 x ISH530 in that space, it will allow you to run dimmed and save running costs, the leds will run softer this way and last a lot longer than stated. If not 8 x ISH F bar although these may be a bit tight lengthways, I believe they are just over a meter so would push against the tent walls with 2 in a line.

Ill send you a message as we may be able to get you a good discount on the lights.
