Depending on what you have inside you'll need between 200-250 LEDs. If you use one of the Meanwell LPC or ELN drivers then you'll need one driver per 12 LEDs (you can push it to 14 if you need to), or you can use one of their larger drivers and run your LEDs in parallel instead of series (I can calculate how many you need if you let me know whether you need a dimmable or non-dimmable driver).
