Here I am again. This time I'm installing 21 (!!!) recessed lights in the soffits I built in the last video.
The room had nine 6" can lights wired in three zones when I started. I added soffits around the perimeter and installed 21 more 4" lights. I did this because the room is going to be *dark* once its painted. You want the ability to make the room bright enough to chill out in without the screen going and that requires a LOT of candlepower when the ceiling is black and the walls are dark.
The new lights are wired in four different zones (legs).
1. The front 4 lights (behind the screen - with the groovy colored LED bulbs, maaaaan),
2. the side 12,
3. the rear five, and
4. the nine overhead.
I'm zoning them this way so that I can kill front lights (almost always), kill back lights (keep from shining on screen), and dim sides for ambient light during movies.
All of these will be LED so that there is a minimum of heat added to the room (not to mention power consumption!).
Thanks for watching!
