    It hjard to say how many you should use. Just be aware though that these are much brighter than traditional LEDs, so depending on other elements in your display then this may be over powering if using too many, you could just dim it down if thats the case. So then its going to go down to how much fill effect on the pole you want

    HI Eddy love your display. On my archs I use 100 m6 leds per segment that's why I was woundering how many to use I heard people say to use half the amount in pixels maybe best to buy one of each string and try it first thanks for the advice Dennis Laff
