    Gaudy Box Design idea

    Alot of prefab boxes come with neon, plexiglass, led's. mirriors etc. Just this week I have had the opportunity to impress several groups of people with the privilege of an open trunk L7 excursion **** demo, but they all commented on how plain,(and ghetto<the alligator clip remote wire!!!>) the setup looked.
    Don't get me wrong, I don't want to wire my stuff up like Las Vegas and look like a homo. It did however get me to think, and it gave me a kind of a cool idea. I took an electronics class where we built a sound sensitive circuit. I've long forgotten how to do it, but I do recall that with different combonations of resistors and stuff you could make the little LED light up at different intensities of sound or at different htz.
    Taking this idea, Why couldnt a person make a box with a bunch of different color neons or led's that as the htz got lower, the colors changed. The colors would sort of coordinate with fire, red being 200 htz (coolest flame) and blue white for 20 htz or the (hottest flame). I know this is a rather flamin' idea, but it would be a challenge and would sick as all get out for bass songs with descending and ascending constant notes. It would look the best in a bandpass box, but it could work in a sealed with plexi or just radiating out of a port tube.
    Just a thought...

    One of the car neon makers used to have a similar product out. It changed color and flashed with the bass. It can be done and surely you can come up with something that will look better than what they had.

    **** that **** sounds awesome. You should come up with some plans somehow and get that patented because there are now 7 color led's out. They are 7 colors in one, yellow, blue, green, red, purple, white, and umm....crap I cant remember the other color but they change seven different colors. That would be bada** to see a led light strip that would change colors to different hz.

    sounds like a good idea. however, it will be hard to create a led display that functions according to the frequency. you would have to have a pretty good mic to be able to pick up the low frequencies. i believe most products that you see blink with the music use spl rather than frequency.

    Easy fix on that is don't use a mic. Tap into the RCAs somewhere or build this into a line driver.
