I have 6 strip of lights consisting of approx 100ft total.
1 strip = 16.5ft , 36w, 150 leds, 12v, 3a .. and can be connected to total of 20 strips end-to-end.
It will be controlled by an RF controller at one end to display patterns, etc and the controller will be powered independently. Each strip is connected to the next strip, and on each's end have an extension female power adapter to get more power of its own to be used to its fully lighting potential.
I have a 20a 12v power supply on hand which I'd like to use to power these, however, I like to know if I center that power supply at 50ft in middle and run the wires from center outwards 50ft to left and 50ft to right would that be sufficient? Wires would be 12guage electrical copper wire I have 200ft spool of that I don't use.
Should I get another 20a 12v power supply, totalling two, and place one on each end so as not to drop the current load? I ask this because I was given a theory of seeing this as 100ft hose and the pressure would drop the more it is extended whereas the most pressure (light output) would be that nearest to the power supply. So by having one and both end they would push to each other and no current would drop. And each of the female adapter would be fed into the 12guage male that I would attach too this additional power.
