I'm probably going to sound dumb, but I need some help with LEDs.
I need to run 4 lengths of RGB LEDs, 22' long each.
I need them to change colors together.
It is for a bus.
I believe 12V is limited to 16'. So do I have to go 24V?

I just need someone to tell me what to buy...lol.
The strips, the power supply and driver, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Not a dumb question at all, an interesting problem. Do you need to connect a four strips in series (end-end), or can they connect to a common point?

The el-cheapo RGB strips I am familiar with are wired to all change at the same time. They are typically 5v but 12v are available. 22 feet is pushing it though.
