    How about in a 6.3V strip from GI or insert?

    Dont know, sorry. Comet has them here. The Matrix system uses a replacement GI bulb that has a wire tap.
    You pick up extension wire, and run a bunch up into the backbox or topper, and trigger strips, pads and other lights.
    Just make sure you have all LEDs in the game, and if you want a bunch, split the input to different GI Lines.
    A Brightness Scfrew, adds more. Consider any Flex color changing, while you consider options.

    Or check Ebay, and wire up.

    If your goal is simply longer white strips, you can buy a USB 5v framing strip for TV. Just watch your amperage draw.
    If its small spots or strips, that's the recommendation on matrix.
    Either way, good luck with your vision. Do share, when you are done.
