Your good for no more than 4 square feet. @ 3000 lumens per sq/ft.
I prefer 5000 lumens per sq/ft even in vegg.

.

this was 3 crammed under a 4 bulb 2' fixture





keep it all tucked within the footprint of the fixture and drop it down to 2"- 3" off the top

leaf only gets a minor burn after touching the bulb for a while
those tubes run so cool

the 6 bulb fixture is a little bigger than mine but not by much 23"x13" vs 25"x21"
2 should fit under there nicely (IMO)
