      Hello all.When purchasing a light kit,for each individual light,why is beam angle so important?Are adjustable beam angle lights better than fixed beam angle?Can the lights be dimmed(wattage adjusted) or do you have to buy lower or higher wattage lights?Thank you.

      Hi Linda,

      Maybe this will help…

      “The actual ‘BEAM ANGLE” of a fixture is defined as the angle at
      which central intensity (in candelas/candlepower) drops to 50 percent.”
