Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting Questions

Posted by pmsmith2032 (My Page) on

I have started looking at installing a low voltage outdoor lighting system and after doing a day or research, have the following question:
1. What would be a decent downlight spotlight around between $25-$40. I know that solid brass is best, but everything I've seen is over $50. The lights will be installed on the side of a raised deck to illuminate an area to play bags at night.
2. Is it possible to control lights on the same transformer individually? For example, turn the downlights I mentioned above on and off without affecting deck lights attached to the same transformer?
3. What is the difference between an electic transformer and a magnetic transformer? For example, I actually found some Volt downlights that looked good for $50 but they require a magnetic transformer which seems to be more expensive.

Thanks in advance for the help!
