I am building an rgb LED 160*10 Array using:
A - 50M (164ft) Addressable WS2801 RGB 5V LED Strip 160 - 9W/M = 45W/5M - 1.8Amp/M - 9Amp/5M
B - 8 Gauge wire
C - 300W / 5v / 60amp Power supply.
My current display layout & connection is attached in the diagram picture below. Figure Connection 1
I also attached my plan on the upgrade to overcome the power loss by connecting two 300W-5V-60amp Power Supplies. to both ends. Figure Connection2
The question is:
Is my second connection in shown in figure Connection 2 correct?
If not, then how can i fix the connection in order to overcome the power loss by powering the entire 50M (164 chain) with 2 power supplies to both ends?
Do i leave the 10th strip end marked with 10A hanging without any connection?
Do i need to use any RGB amplifiers?
Please help me fix this problem or give me any suggestions.
Thank you for your help.
