5" can lights


You wouldn’t be able to see a cone with all lights on. My understanding is that’s the point.

If you only had one of those lights on in the picture I think you would see the cone.

Well....here is a pic with one light....this is in our new laundry room....I have two cans in there....but there was only one bulb in at the time I took the pic....picture was taken with the flash off....see the 'cone' now?



Sorry....but I can't help notice all the preconceived opinions about recessed lights...pretty much akin to the opinions on CFL's....opinions based on little fact.

That’s only a small corner of a room. You would have to pull the camera much farther back to see the light cone. I don’t think there is any argument about recessed lights producing light cones, that is basic physics. Possibly what you mean is that the light cones can become invisible when installed in groups and the resultant effect is uniform lighting?

I’m not sure what you mean about preconceived notions. If you mean that they produce light cones I don’t think that is a criticism, it is just a physical fact that needs to be taken into account. I installed recessed lights and I love them.
