Product Details

Lavolta KIT2 300 LED 16 ft. Tape Lighting Strip 12 VDC Waterproof IP65 Music Control 6A PSU

The Lavolta KIT2 is easy to set up and operate, yet highly customizable. Installation is quick and simple using the 3M adhesive backing on the LED strip. Cut the LEDs to a specific length with copper pads placed every 2". These pads also make it simple to make 90 degree turns or add extensions. This kit is the ideal product for turning any room, shelving unit, or patio into a unique lighting experience.

Each RGB SMD5050 LED is CE and RoHS compliant, the entire strip is IP65 rated (no ingress of dust; complete protection against contact. Water projected by a nozzle (6.3mm) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects).

The included control unit has multiple functions to light up any occasion. The "Music 1" setting keeps the lights on constantly while changing colors to the beat of music via microphone. The "Music 2" function strobes various colors to the beat of the music. Dial on the side adjusts sensitivity for both music settings depending on how much light change you want. The "Single Color" setting lets you toggle through 6 different colors to stay on constantly. Finally the "RGB" setting will fade from off to each of the 3 colors, continuously.

Note: Prior to attaching the LED strip to a surface, it is recommended that you clean the surface with alcohol and dry with a lint-free cloth. In order to connect the LED lighting strip correctly to the remote control, align the black wire with the controller connector's arrow. The strip will only work in one direction, and you cannot harm the strip by connecting it backwards. Install the LED strip connector to the controller connector with both arrows in alignment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The success is in the planningKnow what you're going to use the product for, what the numbers mean, and go SLOWLY.Bought this with the idea to wire it inside of a rave outfit. Powered with a 12 VDC, 10000 mAh portable power source, a meter of the lighting pinned inside of a skirt with the power source and controller in an outside pouch stayed on beat and worked exactly as planned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff!Really more like 4 and 1/2 stars! I bought this product to use as lighting under some shelves I had built. The price is what really sold me on the LED strips. They're pretty easy to work with, although it takes some skill to cut back the rubber coating with out damaging the strip itself. But all you need is a sharp razor and a steady hand. Also, I'd recommend turning on the lights and letting them heat up and expand a little before sticking them to your project. Otherwise with a good plan and some skill these things provide great results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Focus = Results!Bought this product to modify a larger pedal board for guitar set-up. Routed top to accept self adhesive LED strip exactly - along with percussively activated control, this light system provides excellent "show" elements as well as warning lights for a crowded stage of jumping lunatics.Do yourself a solid and SLOWLY inspect all parts and install. One issue I had was with the red LEDs not firing consistently. The problem was due to the loose connection at the 4pin controller - Solution involved small section of shrink tubing to hold the connection firm, even with repeated rough handling of the board itself, the lights respond perfectly. A smaller issue was the difficulty with removing backing to expose adhesive, it kept tearing, requiring a bit more time in install. Again, slowly will win this race for you.Power supply can only be described as bulky - but functional. However, in this install the lights are powered perfectly by a 12DC power supply (in this case by a Voodoo Labs digital with center positive cable) meant for guitar pedals. It produces ZERO noise in audio signal chain - good for commercial and residential audio environments.You can buy with confidence, but make sure you install with diligence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun light setMy wife and I installed this LED light strip on our 406 Carver yacht in two locations. One area being the back where where folks sit and the other up front under what I call the eyebrow over the front window. The sound activation controller/manual controller works very good. It has a built in microphone and hears everything and is wonderfully adjustable by the side adjustment. The manual operation fades in/out of 9 colors and the other mode is a single color on at a time. The LED strip consisting of SMD 5050 LED's is the way to go. What this means there are 5mm x 5mm LED's that have red, green and blue in each where as others have a single red, single blue and single green. If you plan on installing these yourself and plan on cutting the 16 ft up to desired lengths you better be a great person at soldering. I have been in the electronic industry for 38+ years and it took every bit of my experience on soldering to be perfect. The issue is getting the soldering pads exposed and cleaned enough so you get good solder flow. The encapsulation material for this rope will have to be cut and then scrapped away from the solder pads then you need a small (and I mean small bristles) wire brush to assist in the cleaning of the solder pads. Flux then heat then apply solder to tin them first before trying to attach wires. Also prepare the wires first by tinning operation. Parts-Express needs to post a YouTube video showing what I just described as to assist the less experienced electronic hobbiest. Overall the kit is great and I had no issues with the LED's not working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Good!!Bought 2 of these and I thought the first one was bad because only blue and green leds came on. Fiddled with the connectors on the remote wires and found a short. Switched out the remote with my second one and same thing. CHEAP soldering job. CHEAP connectors. After taping the wire in a 180 degree position to fix the short, 3 spots on the roll of leds were extremely dim and off color. 0 for 2 :( will be asking for a refund or exchange.

Is there a kit that has a longer set of LEDs? If not, how does one connect 4 strips to a higher powered controller? Would they connect together making the strip 2,3, or 4 times as long or would each strip connect to the controller and be only 16ft long?

How would I power these off a 12v battery? 

Asked by: ryan9655
You simply plug the battery into the controller in place of the included power supply. You will need a pig tail with a 2.5mm x 5.5mm plug on the end:
