Good Companion Product

I installed the junction box 2 inches from the back underside of the cabinet where the 14/2 Romex came through the wall. The box effectively minimized the length of Romex under the cabinet, was low profile, and color consistent with the Priori lights. It provided a clean installation to the first Priori light in the series. The design of the box made for an easy installation. Two screws easily mounted the box to the cabinet bottom. The provided cable connectors secured the Romex and the quick connectors in the box made tying in the Romex simple. And the cover snapped on to complete the installation.

Pros:
Easy installation, minimizes Romex runs under the cabinets, color and depth consistent with the Priori fixtures.

Cons:
Pins in the supplied 12 inch linking cable may be misaligned and should be checked/corrected prior to installation.

I direct-wired my new xenon light fixtures to a wall switch, and used the junction box to not only provide easier wire connections, but also to provide a clean, professional look under my cabinets. Inside the j-box are easy-to-use stab type wire connectors which worked great for connecting the 14 gauge solid copper wire from the wall cable - just had to push the wire ends into the connectors. Overall, the installation was fairly simple, and it looks and works great. I have four different cabinet areas that I bought j-boxes and lights for. The 12-inch connecting cable that comes with the box wasn't long enough for one installation, and I bought an additional cable for this. The cable connectors are generally easy to use, but a couple had a connecting pin that was not centered which prevented the cables from connecting. I was able to center the misaligned pins by bending them into place using an awl, and the cables then connected properly.

Pros:
Easy to install. Clean, professional look.

Cons:
Connecting pins not always aligned in cable connectors, but this problem was easy enough to remedy.

Question from Mike:

Do I need the junction box for hard wire or can I just hardwired direct into the under cabinet light housing

Answer from Pegasus:

No, the hardwire box is not required. You can either hardwire directly to the fixture or use the hardwire junction box. Here are some Pros/Cons that I hope will help you decide. Hardwire Junction Box Pros: More room in junction box for splices than inside the fixture Uses a neat looking extension cord from fixture to junction box Junction box can be located right next to the Romex wire coming from the wall Cons: This is a more expensive solution Hardwiring to Fixture Pros: A less expensive solution Cons: Space inside the fixture is a bit tight for splices but still possible Requires Romex wire to run from behind wall directly to fixture. Some individuals might consider this unsightly and possibly a minor violation of a strict interpretation of the Electric Code.
