6 in. Aluminum Recessed Lighting New Construction IC Air-Tite Housing (6-Pack) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 84.

I'm a DIYer and purchased these to use during a pretty extensive bathroom renovation, installed in an attic above the master batch. While I've had experience with recessed lights in the past, these are particularly great and simple to use. The quick connect electrical connections were particularly awesome (I uploaded a picture showing it as it comes with the product). Simply snap the wire connections into place and BAM, onto the next one. I definitely prefer these connections to having to use wire nuts, which I often have to do with other fixtures because they come with just filament wire to connect to your load wires. The junction box attached to the housing has two punchouts on either side and three on top, which gives you plenty of options for running wiring. I happened to be running 12-gauge wire in my project, and they were plenty wide to accommodate. Since this housing was being put into my attic, I needed it to be IC-rated to enable it to directly touch insulation, and this fit the bill nicely. They're also "air-tite," which I believe just refers to the small foam seal that surrounds the light opening to stop air movement between non-insulated spaces and your living space (yay for energy efficiency!). Also, according to specifications, the light is suitable for use in damp locations, such as over showers or in your bathroom, but that's also largely dependent upon what kind of light fixture you install into the housing. I installed these on a 20-amp circuit using 12-gauge wire and a dimmer switch. The dimmer operates them perfectly. Installation is pretty straightforward--cut a circle in your drywall slightly larger then the opening of the light, then stretch out the bar hangers flush with your joists and nail them into place. I encountered some issue with the nails supplied in the bar hangers where a lot of them would bend (I swear I know how to use a hammer properly!), but they still sit in place just fine and there are other pre-made holes in the bar hangers that you could use other nails/screws if you're worried about it. All-in-all, I consider this a definitive buy. IC-rating, air-tight housing, and easy installation is the name of the game. A word of caution if you're remodeling, however, is to check how much space you have to install them in before buying (they take up quite a bit of space).

Need access to the wire J-Box after installed. I took out 3 screws on bucket but it does not want to come out....are you sure the bucket can be removed, once installed, to gain access to wires in J-Box? It seems that the bucket is larger at top?? Thanks in advance...BigAl

One thing to note here--the socket positioning (depth) is not adjustable in this model. I did not realize that until after I had installed the lights. Regular bulbs (BR30) will sit right at the edge of the trim so you will get quite a bit of glare. There are short-neck bulbs available, but they are more quite a bit more expensive.

Bulbs are somewhat pricey but cool to the touch and should last a long time. I also like the look. I had never installed recessed fixtures before and found them easy to install. I have had these fixtures about 3 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New halos are terrible The new halos (not the strictly LED models) are incredibly difficult to work with. The junction box is not as solid as the old model, the jbox covers fall off while piping/wiring. VERY disappointed. The ones for use with strictly LED trims are made the same as the old model.
