I have a very low ceiling height that is my reason for looking at cans.

While the can would get the problem of a fixture hanging down, it's also going to make the light radius of each can smaller too - meaning you may need to add more of them.

How many were you planning on installing?



Back to my T-5 thought, a T-5 bulb and fixture can be about 1" high. They do cost more than T-8s, but light equally effectively IMHO.
