    Music Pulsing lights...?

    Whether you've seen them or not, some cars have systems in them with lights that will pulse to the sound of the bass, It's pretty sweet, and a little corny, but I'd like to try something like that in a carputer.

    Does anyone know of usb powered lights for a car that either already pulse to the music, or could somehow be programmed to do so..?

    get xmas lights, wire them to your audio out from the amp. I did that YEARS ago. Every time the bass hits, the lights would blink. Ran strands of six lights per strand all over the interior of the car.

    Check out DiscoLitez, it's a winamp plugin for just that.

    Buy computer cathodes, rip out the molex connections, you a have simple pos and neg wire, and you can hook up a cathode controller you can get at a computer store and control it from there. Cathodes are so much cheaper and brighter than 'car neons'.
