    DIY LED Driver Questions.

    Hello everyone, quick question. Iím thinking of getting the kit below from Rapid Led. I currently have T5ís & Metal Halides over my tank, but I miss the dimming on and off of LEDs to simulate Sunrise/Sunset and the Blue Pop you get from LEDís (no blue T5 atinics come close to LED Pop!)

    Also, just so I am understanding correctly, the driver will connect to the LEDís, and plug into the wall (not the apex) and will have an extra set of wires to run to the apex Dimming port for turning it on and off correct?

    That's basically the just of It, thought you will also need an Ethernet cable or Varspd to 2 port dimming cable to actually connect the two wires to the apex.

    You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.
