    how do you hook up lights to your speakers?

    my speaker has a side to plug in 12v. but when i hook it to 12v the light just stays on solid. so how do you hook up light to a speaker so when the bass hit's the lights flash?

    Just hook it up straight to the battery. Like that takes rocket science.

    your gonna need a resistor or its gonna blow it. i did it back when i had some really weak amp thats was only putting like maybe 100-200w. i think you just run the war to the speaker terminals
