    If you are going the ebay route for your pixels, why not pay $4 more and get the addressable and use an expixel? By the time you buy the stuff to make those work you will be close on price anyway. Then if you decide to scrape the prop then you have addressable to use elsewhere. Just a thought.

    Thank you MartinMueller2003, i've already some of this amplifiers... for 12v and they work in the range 5v to 24v. I tried and it "kind of" worked.

    Ruppro thanks, but it's cheaper to me buy some pixels and tearing them down... the pixel pcb board is a little more expensive.

    I experimented with driving dumb rgb and a cutting up pixels a few years ago and adding rgb amps etc .
    I discovered is that RobG's 10w rgb flood board did a good job for 12v dumb rgb strips and strings.
    For 5v I purchased some heavy duty 5v rgb amps from Ray which work well and are 4 channel 12a
    I have no doubt that Dave's RenStick would do great also and would be stable for 5v or 12v

    As Ruppro mentioned , the pcb's save the grief of tearing down pixels and ids the route I have since chosen .

    There is always more and more costs involved , plus as an added bonus no matter which you choose it all needs to be sealed from the weather .

    Excellent Hobby ........................Just throw more $$$$$$
