Has anyone tried to mount LED stripe within 45 degree aluminium profile?
I was thinking a bit about how to mount the LEDs behind the TV. If just glued to the back of TV, half of the light is lost (by illuminating behind the TV), while the alu profile would direct the light out.
What I am a bit worried is that the LEDs would form light spots on the wall, which can be then fixed with light dispersing plastic front.
The profiles are around 6 euros / meter so the expense is not really relevant.
Something like this:
Also as much as I know about LEDs, they need some form of cooling and typically they are mounted into aluminium profiles that are also working as a heat sink.
Is this a good idea or maybe a bad one?
