    I am no longer using that setup, but I believe it was the CG-1500 enclosure, and a standard 350W PS fits fine. My new go-to enclosure is a double-decker in a MTM30 ammo case. Boy, have they gotten more expensive in the last year and a half. I was paying less than $10 delivered the last time I ordered in 10/2020. BTW I use the JDeation designer to lay out all of my enclosures, then fabricate them myself.

    We have centralized (somewhat) the power supplies in CG-2000s. (HP power supplies @ 750 watts.)
    Each of the differential receivers are in TA-200 boxes.
    Power is delivered from the power supply to the receivers on 14/2 landscape wire.
    Our longest power run is 85 feet and with the thicker power cable voltage doesn't drop but a 1/4 volt.
    Live, Laugh, Love.

    I order $12 China specials. Just measure out your PSU and your receiver dimensions and play a little Tetris with it before you order. The enclosure size and weight is small enough such that you can just bungee cord the box to a piece of PVC and hammer it into the ground (not necessarily in that order...). Since PVC can hold up your props anyway, you also conceal the enclosure.

    I see other people putting multiple receiver boards in one enclosure, but I'm not a fan. The point of a receiver is that it be remote. I break those receivers into separate boxes and place them close to the channels they are actually running. I am 5v, mind you.
