    gotta figure out the layout.... I'm not sure how much light (lumens) these fixtures are going to put out in real life. I have some charts showing
    3 watts led = 25 watt incandescent@ (250 lumens). 4-5=40@450. 6-8=60@80. 9-13=75@1,100...
    I have an idea what the 450 lumen (40 watt incandescent) looks like, but path lights at 3 watt led @150 lumens from one manufacturer or 2-2.5 watt led at 110-115 lumens. ??? or bullets at 2-4-6 watts led???
    I may by a couple fixtures or a fixture with assorted bulbs and see what the light will actually look like.

      That's why I am giving the low voltage a go...

        Sounds like a project of some significance. Have you asked the supplier to offer design assistance? They do that stuff all the time, you don't have to follow there recommendations, but they may have some experience that can be beneficial.

        Of course never forget they are selling. Buyer beware.
