Recessed Lighting For Basement (low ceiling)
 
I am looking for some advise for installing receased lights in my basement. The basement dimensions are Length - 38ft Width - 12ft Height - 7ft I have a fairly low drop/suspended ceiling with no insulation in it so I beleive I'm good for non IC housing. I'm looking for low heat emitting lights CFL's would be ideal but I'm having a hard time locating a kit that has everything in them like those halogen kits that homedepot sells. Can anyone help with the configuration + which cans/housing to buy?

Thanks for the reply do they have the product listed on their website? I checked but I didn't see a lighting section. Would you be able to provide me with a direct link to the product so I know what I'm looking for when I head down there

I bought 4" cans that came with 13w CFL's
Big box stores do not list everything on their web-sites
