3.5" RGB LED Recessed Light - Ultra Bright (9W)

In Stock (usually ships same or next business day)
As low as $76.33

aspectLED's recessed lights are bright, energy efficient, and attractively styled, making them perfect for virtually any residential or commercial application.

At 2" tall, our 3.5" round RGB LED recessed light can fit into tight spaces that a traditional recessed can light can't, such as ceilings with ductwork/piping/obstructions, hot-roof ceilings with limited vertical clearance, and tight soffits.

These lights feature an easily adjustable LED face that can be pointed straight downward, making them compatible with sloped ceilings (up to 6/12 pitch). Our slope ceiling recessed lights also make perfect art spotlights or wall accent lights, as they can also be installed in flat ceilings and adjusted to point at walls, artwork, or sculptures.

Use the RGB Color Changing capability of these unique lights to create a truly unique aesthetic for your space.

Do I need a controller to make these lights change color?
Yes, you will need a RGB LED Light Controller to control the color changing effects of these lights. You can find all of our RGB Controllers in the Controllers section of our website.
Does this fixture need a housing or a can? How does it affix to my ceiling?
aspectLED’S recessed in-ceiling lights do not require a can, housing, or box to attach to. They insert directly into your drywall cut out and are held in place by high tension springs.
How is it installed?
The light is supplied with an external driver to convert from your power source (12VDC or 24VDC) to the power level the light requires to operate; the driver has a 5” pigtail for you to make your connection to your power source and your controller. To finish you simply plug the light into the low voltage side of the driver, and insert the light into your cut out.
Can I daisy chain or connect multiple lights together?
Yes, just make sure that your wire gauge and power source are adequate to support the distance you are running from your power source to the lights and the number of lights on your circuit.
How long is the wire pigtail length on a recessed light?
There is approximately 9" of wire lead between the fixture and it's external LED driver. There is approximately 5 inches of wire lead from the input side of the driver that you can use to connect to your input wiring.
Which voltage option should I choose?
12VDC: 12 volt lights are popular for automotive, motorcycle, boat/marine applications, or anywhere where you are connecting to a 12VDC supply. Some applications may require a separate 12VDC power supply!
24VDC: 24 volt is the most popular option for residential and commercial applications. 24VDC is a safe low voltage, and is the most stable and reliable voltage for your aspectLED in-ceiling lights. Requires a separate 24VDC supply!
How do I know what power supply to purchase?
The method to calculate your required power source for a low voltage light installation would be to take the watts per light (in the specs section of the product you are interested in), multiply by the number of fixtures you plan to install, and then add 20% to that total. The resulting number is the minimum number of watts your power supply needs to be, so round up to the next available size power supply.It never hurts to go with a larger power supply. Your lights will only consume the number of watts actually being used when they are on.
What gauge wire should I run to my recessed lights?
We generally recommend using between 12ga or 14ga stranded wire. Longer distances require larger gauge wire. Always consult a wire gauge chart to determine the correct size wire for your application.
Is this fixture rated for use in damp locations?
aspectLED’s recessed in ceiling light fixtures are approved for dry or damp environments.
Is this fixture UL listed?
Many of our products are UL listed. To confirm, please review the Certifications listed under the product specifications section of the product you are interested in.

This calculator applies only to low voltage (12 or 24VDC) recessed lights. If you're chooseing 120VAC lights, you can ignore this section as you don't need a power supply. When using low voltage LED recessed lights, a power supply (sometimes called a driver or transformer) is used to provide the LED lights with the low voltage power that they need to run. The power supply connects to standard house current (120VAC) and steps this current down to 12 or 24VDC. In automotive or marine applications, this power can be supplied from a 12vdc or 24vdc battery. The most popular low-voltage choice used by residential and commercial customers is 24VDC, since it is still a safe low voltage and yet it provides more protection against voltage drop, and consumes less current. If you have any questions about sizing your power supply, please don't hesitate to chat live with an LED expert.

Select the wattage per fixture that you're planning to use. You can find the fixture's wattage under the product specs/overview tab.

Choose your preferred voltage. 24VDC is most common for residential and commercial applications.


Enter the total number of lights that you want to connect to your power supply. When you're completing a large area or room, you would typically use multiple power supplies, one for each "zone" or group of lights that you want to control. So, you'll need one power supply for each dimmer or switch that you want.

Calculator Results

Please make your selections above and press calculate.



Simply round *up* to the nearest power supply size. Remember that it never hurts to go larger with your power supply, but your lights will not operate properly if your power supply is too small. If needed, you can also use multiple power suppliesto meet your consumption requirement.
The minimum power supply size automatically adds 20% to your total consumption to account for voltage drop and in-rush current at startup, also, most inspectors will consider the power supply a current generating device and they won't let you load it over 80% continuous, so the 20% added solves for this as well.
