  1. Dumb rgb ribboms, rope or pixels.

    Most of mine are 16/4 speaker wire. I use the bigger gauge because some of my runs are about 40-50ft away and I was concerned with voltage drop. There is a little but you can't really tell unless you know how and what to look for.
  2. Flood Mounts

    I know you're looking to hang from up top, but I put mine down below and use a hanger bracket on a piece of 1.24" pipe.
  3. AlphaPix16 Fuse

    You may want to look into what's causing the issues as this will cause long term damage to the board.
  4. Power injection help needed.

    I think you're on the right track. With power supply #2 Pixels 27- 212, if I read it correctly you only have it connected at pixel 27. You will need to connect it to pixel 212 (the end) as well. I would also suggest connecting at least once more, if not in two spots, in the middle. Do the same with the other power supplies. I don't think you need to add power supplies, just the number of times you inject power from them. I don't know how well these pics will be, but here is how I have part of my 63 x 126 pixel matrix wired. I have 630 pixels powered on each power supply with a total of 12 power supplies. I know it pushes the limits a little, but I don't use all white all at once.
  5. Dumb rgb ribboms, rope or pixels.

    The ones from Amazon are no longer there, but I have purchased these a while back as well- http://www.ebay.com/itm/5M-10M-SMD-3528-5050-5630-300LEDs-RGB-White-LED-Strip-Light-12V-Power-Supply-US-/181435517609?var=&hash=item2a3e664aa9:m:mmgadYafbc7VDDFUDiSYJzA Just search for RGB Waterproof 5050 SMD 5M 16FT 150 LED RGB Strip lights and you can find a bunch for cheap. Just make sure they have an waterproof rating of IP65 or better.
  6. Dumb rgb ribboms, rope or pixels.

    I found most my Dumb Strips on Amazon, with Prime Shipping for less than $12 a strand.
  7. Multiple Pixcon16 boards setup

    #1 The question of in or out has been up for debate in the forums. I have it set to blow out, with holes on the bottom where the wires come out to let air in. #2 I had to go back and watch it again as it's been a while since I made it. It's on the side like that because that particular box sits on the roof so the box doesn't quite sit vertical. The vent cover I used has a gasket so it seals around the hole. https://www.alliedelec.com/bud-industries-ipv-1115/70368863/ I haven't had any water issues and it's been through 2 winters so far. And last winter seemed more rainy than normal. And just to clarify, the vent is only on the bigger box with 4 power supplies. I don't have a vent on the CG1500 with the controllers, and so far haven't had any heat issues that I'm aware of.
  8. How to send display to controller?

    If you were using a DC Controller (CMB16D or CMB24D) they have the Standalone option in the Hardware Utility program to download animation sequences only, no music.
  9. Multiple Pixcon16 boards setup

    Not sure how you have the pixcon's enclosed, but in one of mine I did add an 8 port switch in the same enclosure to avoid running multiple cables out of the garage. (About the 2 min mark) The power supplies are in a separate enclosure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy6CZBgaCCU
  10. Cannot make the pixels work

    Make sure the "Control Lights" tab is checked from the Tools pull down menu if in PE or The Play tab in SE.
  11. Sale?

    Got my order today, just SPT Wire and Plugs though.
  12. 3 Channel Star Burst

    I bought a couple from these guys a few years back. http://store.3glightingcreations.com/
  13. wire

    I can't quite tell from the photo, but it may be low voltage wire for speakers or security cameras.
  14. I need C7 icicles

    Was it these guys? http://www.creativedisplays.com/?_ga=2.108495554.1108921840.1503983028-1558083621.1503983028
