The CommunityAnswer from April 2016 may be correct, though the housing product description says "Compatible with a wide variety of 6 in. LED retrofit trims but is best with Halo quality RL, RA, SLD, LT, SMD and ML series models (Bulb free with some having a 45 year LED lifespan)". I bought the Model # LT560WH6950R and I have not been able to fit it into this housing no matter what I try. The housing is already installed so I guess I'll try to find another LED retrofit trim. Maddening waste of time.
Yes...14 gauge wire is fine as long as it's protected by a 15 amp breaker.
Though you can use the template provide and cut with a hand saw the best is a 6'' diameter hole saw setup. Just take your time doing the layout to avoid contact with beams and existing wiring.
This item does not have anything to do with current draw, or dimming capability. The load that is installed into this item would determine whether or not you can use a dimmer, and what size wire would be needed.
No, it's just an aluminum shell. I just installed one this past week.
Yes, but invest the money in an LED light/trim. it makes the recess can ok for wet locations. The unit is made of all aluminum anyway. Be smart and also get a dimmer for LED to help save money on your electric bill. You can get it all at Home Depot.
No...14 gauge wire is only rated for 15 amps per the NEC.
Don, the housing comes with a junction box attached with cover (I am looking at it right now at the picture of it with knock outs and a cover). You simply connect your wire through the junction box knock outs into the quick connect recepticles and re-attach the cover. Enjoy!
You can, but you'd be better off with a new construction version that you put up before the drywall goes in.
It depends on the wattage of the bulb. If you use LED, for example, calculate the wattage and make sure your dimmer can handle the load as well.
