Did not know that. Learn something new everyday.

It worked great all night. Now today it wants to get so hot that its pretty much melting the speaker wire. Only the the switch. After that everything is good.

Pulled the fuse. Stripped the end of the wire. Push/plugged end of the wire in. Put the fuse back in.

Can anyone give me insight as to why the speaker wire is getting hot to the point of melting when the lights are on and the cigarette lighter is in use? I understand common sense says its drawing to much power... But why is no one else having this issue? Even if plugging into the fuse box itself instead of connecting at the point of the cigarette lighter, the amount of power being drawn should still run through that point and the speaker wire...

I don't know. It's just 5 volt LED's and should be pulling only a small amount of amperage. You may want to pm the guy who makes those and ask him. Maybe you got a defective set.

Ok. Made no sense to me. Also, it's only set to blue. None of the buttons work to change colors, intensity, etc. no matter where I pull the power from.

You might want to try another power source. When I first hooked mine up it was only white, tried another power wire and was able to change the colors.

After talking with elcorvino, I'm going to send him a new controller. There should definitely not be any wires getting hot. The controller will get warm, but not uncomfortably so. Out of all the sets that I've sent out, he was unlucky enough to have the only bad controller I know of...

Just curious, if you leave the controller in an accessible place, can you change the color and intensity whenever you want?

Hey guys, I am still making these. Although I'm currently overhauling my CNC, I should have the new versions in stock some time next week.

To answer your question DavisI, yes, as long as you can access the controller, the color and intensity can be changed at any time.
