    My WS 2801 strings are 100 pixels long and will be run on pix8ad's 1x string per universe. with the strings being this long I will need power from both the pix8 and power in from the end of the string.


    Can I run this power that will be from the end that pixel 100 is on from the pix8 ie 2 wires out of the plug or should I run the power straight from the PSU

    Being a 100 string the output fuse of the pixad8 will handle the load so i would just T off the wiring and feed the power from both ends of the string.
    So yes 2 wires out of the plug is the best option for a 100 string and the pixad 8
