I have one pot light, 6", in my 14x20 foot basement. Works nice.

Also have one of those 55" Samsung Smart TVs in the corner. The one that the Feds can turn on the mike and the the 'hidden camera' that no one talks about yet. It throws a ton of light actually.

TV sits on a 20" TV stand. Never could figure out why people hang the suckers on the wall. Mind you 99 has all the work so I watch CNN all day and my neck would be pretty stiff looking up all the time.

Back to the original question. Room is twice the size of mine, give him two lights. And a table light.

Well I'm underwired I guess.

So would a headlamp strapped to your forehead.

In reality, the opaque lens on Lotus Lights have a lot of spread so you can probably get away with spreading them out. They're not nearly as directional as the old projector lamps.

I took that into consideration while setting up my model in my mind.

Lights being 42" off the outer walls and 7' on center approximately at 8' AFF.

This could be a good scenario for bronze/silver/gold:

Bronze - two fixtures so you don't walk into the sofa.
Silver - 15 fixtures so you don't trip over the cat.
Gold - 21 fixtures with even spacing and excellent uniformity.

At $110.00 per point:

2 X $110.00 = $240.00
15 X $110.00 = $1650.00
21 X $110.00 = $2310.00

It probably depends on if the job is in the ghetto or Mortgage Heights .

I can respect that, it's a part of the basis of free enterprise.

If only everyone wore the logos of their sponsors!

"Tied, ass, and killing" three words that sound like they belong in a vastly different conversation.
