ch. 1:CWx6 on each driver @ 1500mA = 3.2V*6 = 19.2V
ch 2: NWx8 @ 1500mA = 3.2V*8 = 25.6V
ch. 3:Luxeon Cyan x6 @700mA = 3.2V*6 = 19.2V

ch 4:WWx6 @1500mA = 3.2V*6 = 19.2V
Luxeon DeepRed x4 @700mA = 2.4V*4 = 9.6V

I was just thinking about running the red channel as "stand alone"..or grouped w/ the ww LED's.. no big deal..

I don't often think about "grouped" drivers on a channel.. as above..

Actually you're right.. Don't know why, but I confused something, I continued to count 4 colors but in fact I have 5.

Reds totally need to be on a separate channel.

I could group WW and NW on a single channel and see how it goes, I can always change, it's not a problem.

Can't wait to do it!! Maybe I'm just overthinking
