PLEASE READ THIS, AND INSTRUCTION LINK BEFORE BUY !No Paper Instructions. Only a webpage link. There is a file at the end of the instructions, which you can download and print !
PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTION LINK BEFORE YOU WANT TO MODIFY THIS KIT. DO NOT TRY TO HOOK IT UP DIRECTLY TO YOUR AUDIO SOURCE. THAT CREATES BOTH A SHOCK AND FIRE HAZARD. YOU MAY DIE !!!
If you still want a kit that can safely hook up to your audio source, buy my CL3 LED Color Organ Kit. If you want it to power 120V or 220V incandescent bulbs, buy the SR3A solid state relay kit, too ! See my store for those listings.
THIS IS A KIT 110 VAC VERSION. This circuit controls incandescent lamps in response to ambient sound. This circuit connects directly to 120VAC, and can control up to 2amps (240W) of incandescent lamps per channel. An on-board microphone picks up ambient sound and modulates the lights. Each of the 3 channels responds to a certain portion of the audio spectrum (Bass, Mid-range, and Treble). This circuit is a major improvement over the old "color organ" circuit of the 70s. That circuit used probability (hit-n-miss) to roughly adjust brightness. This circuit uses true proportional pulse-width-modulation (PWM), to adjust brightness. It really takes advantage of the properties of the bidirectional thyristor, known as a TRIAC, to control brightness. Its not that crappy "color organ" circuit, of the 70's, that has just been blindly aped on the internet. No real original thought ! This circuit, syncs with the AC waveform, for true PWM. Mind the "Seven-Ps" people !
External connection are all made by way on 4 2-pin screw terminal blocks. They look like one 8-pin block, because they are interlocking, and come that way in the kit.

You will need a 110 VAC Power Supply , in other words plug it in the wall !
