That is correct. Since it is only one strip worth of lights you will only need one source y'd to the two step sections.

I wouldn't make it a big deal either! It's low voltage wire so it doesn't need to be in a junction box.. If you don't leave yourself access just make sure you have a very secure connection and you...

Probably would be more helpful if I gave you the right numbers :o. I edited my post with the correct LED strip cut length (4" instead of 3").

This is perfect. I made a couple adjustments to either clarify LED strips or to reduce runs (Option 1 below). Otherwise everything looks great. So we have 3 strips for the riser section. Are you...

They can be cut and re-used!

I would personally run thermostat wire for each strip. This will minimize voltage drop. But when in doubt test it out!

Thank you! I'm half tempted to build 4 LLT. I keep reading that TR response is greater with ported subs.

Of course. I leaned heavily on other AVSforum builds for my rack design :D.

It looks like this set comes with everything you would need. You could add an inline Insteon controller to turn it on and off or connect it to a switch. Otherwise this is fairly straight forward.
