Differential Receiver Power Question
« on: November 15, 2018, 05:10:56 PM »
I am expecting to use two 4-String Differential Receivers in my show.  Each one will be in a CG-1500 with a power supply (so two setups like this total).  Should I be using 10 gauge wire from the power supply to the receiver? or is that overkill?

Its overkill to me, You are not going to be running a lot of lights from a differential reciever like you would from a 16 port controller.  You could probably use 14 ga.

Wire AWG would be based on how many lights your running on each reciever.
