Yes, using a larger wire will help, as will using more than one run. If you want too, you can leave the 16 gauge wire in place, then run the new 12 gauge wire and transfer most of the lights to the new run.
The fewer lights on a run, the less dimming will occur, so put more lights on the 12 gauge run.
Also, the longer the run, the more dimming will occur.
You may want to reconsider the location of the transformer, if possible. In your case, it would be better to locate the transformer in the middle of the current run, and just split the run in half to make a run in each direction. Of course, that depends if you have a 120 volt outlet available in that area.

Testimonial: "I just replaced my wire with a 12 gauge and WOW! what a difference! this solved the problem. thanks."
If you have 2 sets of A and B terminals, then power pack is usually rated for 600 watts, with 300Watts on each A and B.
I don't know how to tell what wattage power pack is, except add up total watt amount of bulbs that originally came with unit. That should give approximate value of power pack wattage.
