    Flat panel led with remote driver

    Does anyone know of a dimmable 2x2 flat panel led with a remote driver? I want to install these in a customer's basement and I only have an inch and a half because of ductwork. The suspended ceiling is too low for surface mount fixtures. I was hoping to install the drivers on the side of the 2x6 above the suspended ceiling. Everything I have found has the driver mounted on the panel. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I’ve only seen them with the driver mounted to the fixture.

    That has got to be one tight unforgiving space! Those things are thin these days.

    Driver thickness.

    In the process of doing 2 conference rooms with flat panels and although drivers are attached they are less than 1 1/2 inch tall. But even with the driver remoted, I question as to how you would even place the panel without building the grid around it. They must be installed tilted up on the diagonal. Do not envy you on this one. The drivers have to have the cover with arcs cut for fitting clearance. Use 3/8 flex with a whip would fit under the duct if you have 1.5 inches clearance, if you are building the grid around the fixtures. Good luck.
