Also, as far as I've read it's just a matter of splicing the solenoid wires onto the plug and I'm good to go, correct?

Hi parker679,

The output of the power supply is 9.6 amps so it should meet your power requirement. As for the installation I don't do solenoids so I will leave that part of the question to others.
