    what would be the best way to wire these up? (poll)

    ive got 2 sets (4 total) LED strips that i am going to be putting into my car. I know for a fact that i will be putting 2 in my foot wells, not sure about the other 2, possibly in the back by my amps maybe in the trunk, not sure. anyways, i have 2 options of how i can have them wired. oh also each LED strip has the simple 2 wire configuration, 1 pos and 1 neg.

    Option #1:

    -I could run them all parallel to eachother, and wired to a single rocker switch and have it spliced into my cig lighter to use as my 12volt constant. The only thing about this, is it may get confusing wiring them all in parallel to eachother.

    Option #2:

    -I can run them all to this StreetGlow switch panel, or something of this type:

    ^^if anyone knows something like this but better, post it please.

    and have each wired to its own channel i guess you could call it so i can control each light seperatly if need be. The main power would still be spliced into the cig lighter (unless theres one closer or easier, possibly wire it to my distro in the back?). Depending on the size of this panel, i can mount it in my center consol for easier access on the side of it (if anyone can find the demensions of this or knows it would be appreciated, or possibly under my HU in the left over space i have single din hu).


    Option #3:

    -Other, post your own thoughts/options.

    Wire them together in parallel.

    If it gets confusing matching + to + and - to - than you may want to have someone else attempt this for you.
