    Default C7/9 wire color preferences

    First year for me to put a show together. I have put together a design and am now getting ready to purchase lights. I have the pixels down. Sequencing is about half done. For the either C7 or C9 light strings does anyone have a color preference for the wire? White or Green? Can it really be seen at night anyway? thanks.

    Say you are running 4 channels red and green blue and white that's a lot of wire to not match your trim. I choose white because my trim is white.

    Didn't really think about matching the house trim. It's a tannish color. I wonder if I can paint the white?

    I did match my trim! They do make brown wire that would be close maybe. You could always go with pixel bulbs and do it that way also.

    I think painting the wire would not last long

    I also match the location. Windows are white to match the trim and PVC holding them. Trees are green.

    This may very well be true, but for some reason all the wires that I have which were painted over the years still maintain their new (?) colors. Even when I don't want them to.
