F48 Noob Layout
« on: February 20, 2019, 07:07:50 PM »
I have decided to go with the F48 and two 4-String Receiver Boards.

I am not sure but I think this will be enough for my house outline.

Here the lay of my house, let me know what you think.

Thank you,
Eric

Your top "left" run of 50" combined is going to need power injection at the end or in the middle between the 31" and 29" section.
Your other runs could be fine (particularly if you set power Max at 60% or less in the F48 string setup.

I run my roofline icicles from a single receiver board, and I have more linear distance to cover than you do.  Aside from the power injection issue Jon noted, you're fine.

I would consider relocating the F48 to the inside of your garage.  It will reduce the length of Cat5 you need to run.
