about to order 300′ of RGB LED strip lights – is my cart complete?

I need to install about 300' of LED strips and have decided on these components.

20x 5m led strips

10x rgb amplfiers

15x splice connectors

1x RF controller

2x 12v 30a power supplies

this is going to be a ring of lights, I plan on using two strips on each "amplifier". already have some 18ga 4conductor wire for links between amps and strings, already have some 12g 2c for links between psu and amps.

I plan on improvising some type of heatsink — some type of easily worked metal nailed to the wood. this will also be to promote adhesion

I may also install a separate strip of warm white single color (though not a RGBW strip)

they will be on a ledge above a window all around a restaurant, facing towards the ceiling.
