I am installing recess lighting in my finished cellar room, I have suspended ceilings.
The gap between the bottom of the joist and the top of the ceiling tile is 2 1/2 inches, but the most my can light ajust to is 1 inch lower. So if I mount it to my joist ..it won't reach the top of the tile.
I know I can mount it on the ceiling frame, but is there a way I can do it on the joist??
It's my first time with recess lights, does the "baffle" assembly somehow cover that gap of 1 1/2 inches??? The instructions that come with it is minimal.
