Okay I got a email back from the supplier:
" oh no, the 36v power supply is completely seperate, like a labtop battery. They plug into the dimmers that we have that are 5v-36v dimmers and then those plug into the light. The power supplies we have are not dimmable power supplies but you could get some that are. Basically it just needs to be 36V going into this fixture... X 2 Because we have one power cord going in to the whites and one for the blues. "

So based off that the drivers are seperate. Therefore I should be able to get a driver from rapidleds?

Ill get some picture here now

Yup. So they may be dimmable if I get the right drivers then?

I've never opened up one of those fixtures before, so I can't guarantee...
Search for ecoxotic DIY driver and do your research, but it seems doable.

I talked to a representative at rapidleds and they seem to have a driver thats compatible and will possible work. Ill let everyone know how one goes.So could I splice the dimmer signal of two different drivers which control the same colors into the same port ?

Yeap :)
You can connect multiple drivers in the same port, but they will dim all together.

I'm going to work on mine soon. I think it can be dimmed with a simple opto isolator with the arduino 5v dimming on one side and the 12v dim supply voltage and dimming pin on the other side.
