Get the Landscape lighting resource manual. You can order it directly from Unique lightings website. This will tell you everything you need to know about wiring that up.

Make sure you don't place a fixture within 5' of the pool. It's code.

100ft, 100watts, on 12/2 is the rule for a 12-15v unit. Make sure your 300 has a 15v tap.......
