Nice :) but they seem to dim too much into darkness , it seems to flicker a lot. Wouldve been cool if you could control it to dim just to a low amount of light, rather than full dark.

It goes with the music, you have a sensitivity Knob, so you get to mess around with it to your liking. I have the device hidden in my glove box, its wired into my remote start/ ignition, comes on with the key, and off with the key. You can have them either On, Music (different sensitivity) or Off. The device comes with couple of extensions, you can hook up to 8 different strips to it, maybe even more, my next plan is to put them under driver, and passenger seat so they can light up the rear foot wells, i'll mount them on the metal bracket of the actual seat, that way they don't move when you slide them.

If you skip over to 0:38, you see the device, then i have them on ON, after that for the last 2 seconds.



and thanks Fas93, i am good now, i am guessing it was that 24hr cold thats been going around.

Well, in case anyone was wonderingm here's how i did it

you need a music interface, like this one, mine is a bit different, but i tink they;re the same idea. i picked mine at advanced auto parts at the clearance section for 10.99 USD

Music Interface » Buy Now at StreetGlow

then you need LED strips,
Wire
wire taps.

The hard part is finding a positive wire to tap into that you can out a load on without harming you electrics, couple of installation shops told me ignition is the best choice, so i did it into one of my remote start wires.

once you find the positive wire, hook it up to the device, then run q negative from the screw/bolt under the carpet (passenger side, where your pedals would be) then i hid everything in the glove box.


third, connect all your LED to the interface, it has output in the back, so just hook straight to it.


fourth. hide all wires, and adjust sensitivity to your liking

Just throwing this question out there for anyone that may know. For those of us with the speaker lights, is it possible to tap into those and have LED's work in conjunction with them? IE mood lighting, solid on, and music?

Autozone should, if not you can get it online. it all depends on the size of your Autozone.


and for Dvipercop, i always wondered the same, but i thought it might need removing your door panel, then you might get a rattle or two.

and Thanks everyone for the complements, Today, i installed in a friends G6 led's inside the speakers, (like removed the door panel, and on the inside of the speaker grill i mounted led strips), and installed the footwell LEDs, everything was hooked up to the music interface device, the only difference is i used i "fuse tap" for hers, and hers is Fused.

Its as sensitive as you want it to be, i can have the volume of 35, and it will barely light up, or i can kick up the sensitivity, and have the volume on 1 and it will light up.
You have a little knob that you turn to your liking, my only complain is that if you have the AC on 3 or 4, and the sensitivity towards the middle (sensitive to volume 15), then the device picks up the ac voice.

One cool thing about it, if you have it on max sensitivity, it picks up sex sounds
