    hi all,
    thought i finally dip a toe into lighting and was looking at some subtle up lighters for behind my front 2 speakers.
    something plain, simple and cheap would be nice as you're not going to see them very well.
    any pointers would be most appreciated.
    cheers.

    Take a lump of wood......carve out a hole......put in a downlighter intended for a ceiling.....and there you have it. This can be very effective! And very cheap!!!

    I used some black trunking, drilled holes in at angles and put 6 blue leds in the top and 6 green at the bottom, facing at diferent angles.
