LED Strip lighting.(current rating question) Answered

Hi
I want to install RGB LED Strip and a sound activated controller to make them flash with music in my room. i want to know that if LED Type (3528) 15m strip will run on the sound controller (link given below)?

If yes then which power supply will i have to use to power them up? 

As far as i know we hve to use 12v 6a power supply for 15m LED Strip. and this sound controller need only 2a. will it burn the controller if we put 6a or 12v 2a will b fine?

You are going to need a bigger driver. Calculate the total amperage (The LED's will have a spec sheet and the driver will have a spec sheet detailing how much LED will require per ft and how much a driver will put out).

What is it these days with basic logic and using a calculator...
The need 6A, the controller can handle 2 - where do you get the missing 4A from?
