THE LR6C 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 LR6C produces a soft and pleasing neutral white floodlight pattern that is easy on the eyes.

YOU CAN DIM THE LR6C 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 LR6C 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 LR6C 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!

Excellent LED downlightsReview by Chris Borchert
I have 6 of these in my kitchen after replacing the original LED recessed lights -- Halo and Lithonia. The Halo’s were 3000K and too yellow. The Lithonia had limited dispersion (spot lighted) and sadly allowed bugs into the fixture. The Cree’s however are a great color at 3500K. The only drawback is installation. While simple, I prefer the tension springs (butterfly springs) used on the other lights as I don’t like twisting the Cree’s inside of the cans. (Posted on 7/10/2013)
Great lightsReview by Tom K.
I have about a dozen of these Cree lights installed in my home and they put out excellent light with good dispersion. They light they put out seems much brighter than the 75W equivalent rating in the spec sheet.

Polar Ray always delivers quickly and the packaging is excellent.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these lights and Polar Ray to friends and family. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
Cree LR6CReview by Erick Hollar
These lights have a very good color quality. Very well built,with that they cost a bit more. Out of the 15 different lights I have checked out, this light by far is a good light.
Polar-ray was the lowest price I have found. The shipping was fast. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
Cree LR6CReview by Daniel Huffman
Great Lights! I have been very pleased so far. The only downside is the cost. These were the best priced ones I found but it is still more money than most would want to spend on a light. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
imagasserReview by JW Greenawalt
The right balance of brightness without looking blue. I put 64 of these in my home since my wife was heat intolerant and we have loved the lights.
Polar Ray's prices could not be beat. The turn around time on the order was outstanding. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
Ultimate recessed can lightReview by David
I've had my home office lighted with these lights for a few years. I purchased another set for my mother's home office - she loves them too. A bit too expensive to do the whole house, and some might find the light to be a bit too white, but for a home office scenario, this is the perfect lighting solution. Instant on, 30 year lifespan, low power draw, virtually no heat emitted, no UV, etc. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
