5' Shallow Remodel Recessed Lighting

turbo3March 24, 2012

I want to put recessed lighting in my living room which has 2x6 rafters, so I need shallow remodel cans. Halo does not make a 5" shallow can so I'm looking at Juno, Elco and Elite. Juno's are quite a bit more. Elco and Elite are about $15 per can and their gimbal trims are reasonable as well at around $15. Does anyone have experience with these brands. They are all internet order so I wouldn't be able to see them beforehand. I can't find any local lighting stores that stock them. The Junos are about double the price. I might be willing to pay more if I knew I'd be getting much better quality, but just looking at spec sheets they all look the same. Thanks

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The cans are very similar. I would look at the entire package - can + trim + bulb.

How about the possibility of using the ECO4-575 (Cree CR4) light in a 4" housing instead of a standard 5" recessed can light?

The CR4 performs very nicely and the hole is 1" smaller in diameter.
