Using an ESC or motor driver is an unstable method with no failsafe; as soon as you teeter a little bit over the current limit of the LED you'll blow the LED. Just don't do it.

Believe there are bigger leds out there.  http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2128756

So ok the idea to operate the led with an ESC is out! i have to find another way. ill try meanwell power suply that is capable to PWM

No. A brushless ESC makes 3 phases with AC voltage, and it won't even run without sensing any back-EMF. you cannot use that.

I brushed ESC on the other hand could be used, but i would NOT recommend it!!!
