Ok, I was thinking: (I am very noobish with led's so far, so correct me if it will not work for what I am wanting to do)
The fixture itself must be pleasing in our living room per my wife. So I was going to rig up the light, and install it within a pendant glass enclosure like so
I will use Aircraft cable to string the light for mounting from the ceiling. (and plugging into an outlet) hopefully the fixture including the heatsink can be concealed within the glass enclosure. Do you think its possible?
For the fixture I was thinking these items, although there are still many questions as
how many LED's I would need to get into a high light catagory?
is there an affordable dimmer driver that would work well for this application?
Can I get a circular heat sink that would fit within the glass bulb that would work?
and can it be glued or epoxied into the glass?
White Cree MC-E Star
as for which optics to use, I am at a loss lol.
I am having a hard time finding a driver that is dimmable
I have no idea on how many LED's I would need for the fixture. I would like to mount it 4-12" off the top of the tank, have it dimmable. I do have help to wire the fixture correctly. The other requirement is that it must be as affordable as possible or I risk ticking off the one who pulls the money strings lol.
