Cree LR6 Installation Instructions


THE LR6 from Cree Lighting is one of the most popular LED downlights for home or office. It takes just a few minutes to retrofit into most 6 recessed cans, and once installed it looks so traditional that no one will even notice its a LED downlight. The Cree LR6 produces a soft and pleasing warm white floodlight pattern that is easy on the eyes.

YOU CAN DIM THE LR6 but did you know?

The Cree LR6 is dimmable to approximately 20% and compatible with most standard dimmers. However some brands and models of dimmers will offer a wider range and smoother performance than others so please refer to the dimming compatibility chart located in the Downloads section of this page.


Yes! The Cree LR6 is UL damp rated, so it can be used in bathrooms, covered porches and other areas where it might be exposed to high humidity or extreme indirect moisture.


Cree says its as bright as a 65 watt incandescent (BR30), but most of our customers swear its as bright as the 75W-90W bulb that they replaced! To even our most demanding customers, this product never disappoints.


The Cree LR6 line of LED downlights contain no mercury and use 80% less energy than the bulbs they are designed to replace. And with a 50,000 hour rated life you'll be helping to reduce the number of bulbs that end up in our landfills.


If you use the CREE LR6 six hours per day you'll recover your initial investment in roughly 3-5 years (depending on your utility rates) and will bank approximately $300 more in savings over the life of the product! Thats a lot of extra green!

Customer Reviews

LR6 2700K Review by Grant
I purchased two of these light fixtures for installation over the kitchen table, and plan to upgrade the remaining CFL recessed lights. Light quality is excellent in these units; warm white with a pleasant flood. We tried other brands and did not like the 'salad bar' look - colors were not true 2700K and were more spot in pattern than flood. The LR6 appears to produce at least the equivalent of a 75W incandescent floodlight, yet is a much more pleasing and efficient light source.

Cree LR6 Review by Arthur Hill
The Cree LR6 LCD equivalents to a 75wt Floodlight are fantastic. The unit installs in just minutes and provides the equivalent light output while using a fraction of the electricity. Most important, you will be pleased that these LCD bulbs are free of the delay evident in many other LCD replacement bulbs. While the fraction of a second delay may not be very noticeable, Cree's design isn't plagued by it. Polar-Ray offers the lowest price and free shipping for orders over $99. (Posted on 7/22/2013)
Cree LR6 Review by Lori Lindahl
We have used these units before and enjoy the look and absence of heat in our units. The ordering process was outstanding! (Posted on 3/21/2013)
Led light Review by Brian
Great product. The dimming feature works great. High in price but if product lasts will offset with LED savings. Easy to install and looks great (Posted on 2/25/2013)
Excellent product Review by Amit Basu
I ordered these for our bedroom, which has 12-ft ceilings. I had traditional cans there for many years, and the light was uneven, with some dark areas in the middle.

Installing the LR6s was a breeze, and the results have been great. The room is brighter, the lighting is more even, and the white bulbs blend into the ceiling much better than the old cans. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
LR6 2700k Review by Alan
Cree's LR6 are excellent quality and produce as they say a 75 watt equivalent. The 2700k is in a nice color range without being stark halogen white. We used these in our kitchen and bathrooms. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
I Love these lights!!! Review by Davette Mowers
We have just finished a massive full house remodel and replaced all 60 cans with these or the DR-1000 lights. We now have plenty of light and the warm glow is beautiful. Can lights can sometimes make your home look like a salad bar but these are beautiful and just enhance our other lighting in the rooms. Hopefully they last as long as they say but even at this price point they are definitely worth it. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
Cree LR6 Review by Michael
These do indeed live up to their billing. Good lumens, soft warm light quality and instant on/dimmable. The only drawback is the cost, which as long as they last longer than expected should work out in the end. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
Fantastic Item Review by Lou Whitby
Couldn't be happier with these lights. Just did a complete makeover of a dining room and used these as a light source. No issues with response time or dimming, color is consistent across all lights, and coverage is uniform throughout. I would highly recommend the LR6's (Posted on 1/17/2013)
