Would a 12 volt 40 amp, 500 watt power supply be sufficient to run a Pixie 16 with 16 12 volt 50 pixel strings attached to it at 50%?

Pixels mostly come in two flavors. 0.3 W per pixel and 0.6 W per pixel, so firstly you need to know what you have.

Assuming 0.6W, 800 pixels would be 480W total or 40A at 100 percent, full white.

Yes, that is how they come from LOR

At face value they will work though.

But if you will be using this for long distance props I recommend 2 400 - 500 psu’s so that one bank is not draining another bank for power.
