I am planning out an RGB LED setup. I ordered REV10 speaker rings in RGB, as well as 34 surface mount single RGB LEDs, and 2 20" RGB light bars for under gunnels.
What I cannot seem to figure out from searching is what is the best way to terminate all of this at the RGB controller? I bought the Wetsounds RGB controller (don't have it yet), but I am not certain on the output of it. I am assuming 12A, because that seems to be the norm of controllers in that price range. I have calculated out about 2A for my system that I have so that should be plenty of headroom.
I plan to put 2 LEDs in each cup holder (9 cupholders), 4 LEDs in each speaker grill (4 grills), 2 REV10 rings, and 2 20" bars. What I want to do is minimize the connections at the controller. So can I start connecting this stuff at the lighting locations first? For example, if I have 4 cupholders in one location, I want to take the wiring of all 4 cupholders, combine into one 4-conductor and run that to the RGB controller. Is this acceptable practice? Out of all the LEDs, I count about 10 stations where it would be nice to combine and send just one wire group to the controller at the helm. So I would have 10 connections at the controller.
Let me know how screwed up I have this so far... haha.
