low voltage transformers

I have a 150 watt low voltage light set. I want to add more lights. If I buy a 300 watt set with 4 50 watt lights is there a way to combine the 2 transformers to work as one 450 watt system.
This would be prefferable to running 2 independent systems as far as wiring and sychronizing the on off cycle. I was looking at a 600 watt transformer and it appears to be 2 300 watt transformers joined together. Any ideas would be great.

The equipment must be installed to meet manufacturer's instructions. You won't find series transformer wiring for these lighting circuits in those instructions.

Best bet is to install both low voltage systems as two systems. You are claiming less that a 600 watt load with both circuit loads combined on its primary loads. If that is true then you should be able to install a switch or possibly even a dimmer switch from the power source controlling the primary power source to both individual transformers and low voltage lighting systems.

Hope this helps
