    ok I got it all soldered together. its not the prettiest but it works. I substituted the 2mm power jack for a standard molex connector.

    I didnt get any pics of the work in progress, but I got a couple and a short vid of the vinished product that I will upload tonight. Now I'm going to be changing the wiring between some of the modules so I can use them in different places. I'm planning on using a couple for the "strings" and a few more on the back plate for some surround lighting. I also plan on putting a switch on the ones for the rear so if its too obnoxious I can turn them off

    That's a great idea! I tell you, when I first built my home theatre, it was cool to see all the lit up displays on the equipment, but pretty soon, I was covering them with tape. Hehe.. the option to kill ambient light sources is great.

    heres this kit assembled with 10 RGB modules each containing 2 RGB LEDs. I opted to install wiring with a molex connector to supply the 12VDC rather than the 2mm jack that came with the kit





    and short vid



    theres 55 different sequences in all. the complete info can be found here. If anyones looking for this kind of kit I highly suggest this one. And talk to John, he's very helpful and replied quickly to every one of my emails

    at about 30 seconds in I stick one of the acrylic rods that will be the "strings" onto one of the LEDs tos ee the effect. It works nicely. I think I may try frosting one and see how that lights up as well

    ok so I tried it with a rod that I "frosted" with sandpaper. not soo good. the light gets broken up way too early and doesnt make it more than a few inches into the rod

    I'm going to try some different grits of paper and maybe different directions of sanding as well

    You could also try frosting the end of the led as well.

    Having an LED at each end of the rod will help also
