Creating an audio synchronized light show is made easy with this RGB LED driver with audio sync. As a four channel color organ, the audio input signal is filtered into one of four categories by frequency: low, medium, medium-high, and high. Each frequency category is then assigned a specific pulse width modulated output that feeds to the 4 x 1W quadcolor LED board for power and control. See below for frequency divisions and default color assignment.
This kit includes one quadcolor LED board that can be mounted nearly anywhere. 8-pin input and output connectors (mounted on the bottom of the board) offer quick connection to the audio sync controller and for connecting up to six additional quadcolor RGBY LED boards. Four dip switches on the circuit board offer color control of either the on-board LEDs or both on-board and external RGB LEDs. (see manual in the Manuals/Resources section on the right for more information).
Three individual RGB LEDs are included for versatility and to extend use to other applications such as: flashlights, reading lights, decoration, automotive lighting, and outdoor lighting. 3W RGB LEDs (1W per color) feature some of the highest flux densities available and live up to 100,000 hours (over 10 years). Low power requirements allow for hours of use off battery power. Connect to RGBY quadcolor board (see manual for instructions).
