Landscape lighting (Malibu)

2288 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  DIYGST
I want to buy a 300W Mabinu transformer and hook up maybe 5-6 50W spot lights.

You know the heavy transformer with a dial (timer) on it and it cost almost $100.

It says you have to put the transformer outdoors. Is there any reason I cannot put the transformer indoors?

Also the landscape voltage wire is DC low voltage, can you go run the wire into a crawlspace vent , thru the crawlspace, and out to another spot?? I have mostly concrete slab around the house and no dirt to bury the wires.

I'm sure you can install the transformer inside. I have never seen it inside before but just make sure you keep space around the transformer. And yes you can run that wire how you want its fine.
