Dumb RGB in parallel

Recommended Posts

Has anyone run dumb rgb in parallel instead of series (strings).  Is it possible?

I want to do a 50' run and every 5' I want to branch off four rectangle dumb rgb pixels (diagram). This will be coming off of a CMB24D

Possible? Comments? Suggestion?

The only thing I can recommend, is adding these

I ordered them with another order of lights they didn't charge me shipping.

I won't be able to add another power supply at the amplifier. I currently have some runs 80' to a 5m string with no issues on 12v. This will just be a 40'-50' run with four pixels tapped in every 5'.
