Q: Your answer seems contradictory and I think you may have missed the point of my last question. I am wanting to know if putting a switch on the red power wire to the amplifier would allow me to turn the strips after the amplifier on and off. OR if the power is off to the amplifier, does the signal still pass through and thus potentially have color problems in longer strips instead of the latter strips being off completely. - by Jason
A: Thank you, I did not understand about the switch in your last question. Adding a switch to the amplifier will only effect the power from the amilier not shutting the leds off. They will still receive power from the main power source.
Q: If I have this in-line amplifier installed, what happens if I do not supply power to the red wire on the amplifier? Ideally I would like to have a switch on the power supply to the amplifier to be able to select which strips are turned on. - by Jason
A: That would defeat the purpose of the amplifier, not using the red wire no power would be given to the strip. Maybe install a switch to control the amplifier.
Q: how many amplifiers for 16 ft strips can be connected? - by GARY (UNITED KINGDOM)
A: Don't quite understand your question, if you are connecting 2 or more 16 ft strips you should use one amplifier. If that didn't answer your question let me know.
Q: Back round information. I have ICELED and the Flexdriver. I'm sure I"m getting to the limit of the controller as i have 4 modules, 10 surface mounts and 2 2.5 foot strips running off of it right now. Would this controller help the flex driver to not work as hard? OR does this controller only make the current stronger and allow more luminosity to the lights? - by Jordan (Kenosha, WI)
A: Don't think you are anywhere near the limit, but yes this will amplify the signal and make sure the lights are at their full brightness potential.
