Hey guys, I am not in to lighting and dont plant to be. Im usually over in the irrigation forum but have a project at home that needs some help. Ive put in some lights in the yard, all 10w spots on trees and a couple on walls. Ive got a 300w supply and 12 guage wire. Now none of the equipment is expensive or a decent make, all Malibu from Lowes, I have no desire to blow 1000 bucks on decent material, though I know it would be better. At any rate, I have 2 12 guage strands of 100' each tied together with silicone wire nuts. 3 lights on the first strand and 4 on the second. Every light on the second strand is significantly dimmed whereas the first three are nice and bright. Ive redone the connetion numerous times between the two strands to no avail. Im only pulling 70 watts on a 300 watt supply and 12 gauge wire is pretty hefty, no? I know this is not the system of the year, but it would be nice if it would at least work correctly for a while. Figure its either bad wire or connection. Thanks for your input on possible solutions.
