Q: I just ordered and recieved this product, but being a nOOb at household wiring, how do i hook this bad boy up? L, N, Ground Symbol? It's all confusing. Once I get it wired, I'm assuming that I have (2) grounds and (2) positive 12 volt sources...am I correct? Thanks
A: Your household wiring has either 2 or 3 wires. Your household wiring has a Line, and Neutral, and in most cases a Ground as well. You can hook up your household wiring to the power supply, and then hook up your LEDs to the 2 x 12 volt outputs.
