Budget Sound Sensitive LED panel

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay-- so when i was messing around with my Dell speakers (i take risks with things is got for $5) i pulled off the cloth and modded an LED directly into the system- fine and dandy. However, the voltage -peaks- at 3.3v which means the best range of sound to light comes when they are at ~95% volume which is rather loud so in comes this mod- I'm removing the drivers completely and housing the LED set and Speaker board in a Folgers coffee can that's been jazzed up to glossy black.

Ahh yes-- there are probably those of you saying "gee, why don't you just use sound sensitive cathodes?" the reason is this: Their accuracy sucks, they pick up on ambient noise, and you can't filter them quickly- it requires changing a few caps which is just too much work. With this i can just filter the frequencies which the jack receives. and have it be done with
