Question from Dave:
Answer from Pegasus:This trim is suitable for damp locations. If the soffit will protect the trim from direct water spray then yes you can. If the trim will occasionally be exposed to water spray, e.g. rain, snow, then you will need to use a wet location trim, which is sometimes called a shower trim.
Question from bettina schneider:
Answer from Pegasus:In order to fit your ceiling thickness, you will need to use a nominal 4in recessed light. Here's a similar 4in trim but for use with a PAR20 light bulb. http://www.pegasuslighting.com/4inch-recessed-lighting-trim-adjustable-gimbal.html I would suggest this halogen PAR20 - the flood option. It's warm white with a 30 degree beam spread. http://www.pegasuslighting.com/bulbrite-par20-energy-efficient-halogen-light-bulbs-39w.html For the housing, it depends on whether you are doing a remodel or new construction install and whether there is ceiling insulation present. I am guessing you are doing a remodel. Here's 1 possibility. All other options are visible on the Accessories section (right hand side) of the trim page. http://www.pegasuslighting.com/4inch-recessed-lighting-housing-remodel-airtight.html If you need any more assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Question from Diego Ballina:
Answer from Pegasus:You should look at four inch trims. Manufacturers tend to round down with the nominal diameters.
Question from Jonathan:
Answer from Pegasus:Yes, it's dimmable.
Question from Frank:
Answer from Pegasus:Frank, It can be adjusted up to 28_ from the vertical.
Question from Daniel:
Answer from Pegasus:Daniel, Approximately 5.5in. The outside diameter is 6.5in.
Question from Bill:
Answer from Pegasus:Bill, Thanks for the question. The vapor barrier would have to be cut in order to install these. If you use a compatible wet location housing, then the recessed light should be perfectly suitable for wet locations. Whether the vapor barrier would be compromised, I honestly do not know. I would think the goal would be to seal the barrier around the recessed light, with caulk or some other method. I would strongly suggest contacting an contractor who is knowledgeable of local building codes.
