Using multiple power boosters is common on large DCC layouts.  Sections of the layout are electrically isolated into what is termed  Power District with one power booster per Power District. The wiring of a layout using multiple E-Z Command 5 Amp Power Boosters is covered in the power booster instructions.

I have to ask ,Why would you want to run 2 power boosters on 1 layout? We can run a mile and a half scale 2 track main running 4 sound locos with no power drop off with Dynamis with no booster .If your running smaller then that and 1 booster does not do it .There is connection issues in your rail and or not a large enough feeders,or your feed wires are too small. How big is the layout anyhow?

I didn't say I want to run two. I was just curious.
