There should be closer to four stops difference, if the 1000 Ws rating of the X2400 is correct. But you have a lot of potential for error. The speedlight Fresnel will be more efficient than the reflector on the Buff. Is the projected circle the same size for both? It could be that the now discontinued X2400 isn’t very efficient with its energy use.

Seems like it would be much easier to test them with a light meter.
