    as long as the transformers if low voltage are dimmerable theres should be no problem

    if they are mains voltage there will be no problem either.

    Might be a good idea to over rate the dimmer though.

    yeah divide the total wattage by 2 and add it on will cover you

    ie 200 watts of light 300 watt dimmer
    300 watts of light 450 watt dimmer

    you won't get dimmers exactly to the wattage you have calculated but just get the next size up
