I am using recessed lighting as well. Keep in mind this is not the optimal lighting configuration from an acoustical perspective as the cans create sound leaks in the ceiling. Even with insulation, you will still have this issue. Other options include ambient, surface mount and track lighting. In my case, I am willing to sacrifice the sound a bit simply because I like can lighting. I am working with 8' ceilings and need to conserve as much ceiling height as possible.
Things to consider! ;0
