5' Shallow Remodel Recessed Lighting

Posted by turbo3 (My Page) on

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

RE: 5' Shallow Remodel Recessed Lighting

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.
