Ctb16Pc Question


Recommended Posts

hey guys! just had a quick question. looking to add 5 more controllers next year and not looking to spend $1500 in controllers. I was looking at 2 options. I was looking at either building the controller myself (I need to learn to solder) or buying the pre-built controller without anything. I was thinking to take the controller and use a Rubbermaid case to waterproof it. I was also thinking instead of spending $30 on the cord set I could use SPT2 out of the controller and use female vamps at the end. has anyone gone this route with controllers? im not intentionally trying to be cheap but I can save $100-$150 a controller which adds up when your buying 5 of them. I want to spend more money on finishing converting to 100% LED and add 10,000 more LEDs. thanks.

Hi Tom, just my $0.02 but if you order during the LOR sale you can probably get five PC controllers, with cord sets and cases for around $200 each if I remember correctly. I have used SPT wire or of PC LOR car and controller before but really prefer the actual cord sets more. Your other option is used... last year I moved to RGB lights and sold half of my 12 PC LOR controllers here and on the LOR forums, for between $150 to $175 each and they worked perfectly... just some thoughts... coming to you live from Tapatalk

Check I used 5 gal bucket enclosures with spt 1 wire and female plugs.  Mine were the commercial ones, not the PCs but same principle.  Only difference is you would have to use quick-connects instead of the screw clamps on the wires.  I soldered mine too. It is a good money saver.  No experience previously, but once you do the first one it gets a lot faster and easier.
