LED DIY IDEAS
LED DIY For automotive use:
1. Install leds under your front dash, facing down to the floor illuminating the ground. You can get power behind the cigar adaptor or from the back of the stereo. Get stereo electrical guide to tell you what wire is positive/ground.
Product suggestions: LED pods, LED tube, High power led
2. Install leds in your subwoofer box. All you need to do is to get the leds inside, drill a hole or using exisiting holes to draw the wires out to the amplifier. The amplifier already has power, so all you need to do is hook the positive to the "remote" wire and the other wire to the ground terminal.
3. Install leds in your engine bay! You already have many sources of power in there, such as headlights, turn signal etc... So all you need to do is fine a location which doesn't get too hot and mount your leds, or led module in that location. I would highly suggest using our aluminum high power led for engine area because aluminum will not melt like plastics. For the wiring all you need to do is find out when you want the led to be on. Surely you do not want it on all the time otherwise it will drain your battery. Thus, your best option would be to hook the positive wire to your "park lamps". This is the light that turns on first on your light switch. First is the park lamp, then its the headlights. The wiring for this can be traced and found infront of your car near the headlights. Find it, test it, and wire it to your leds.

LED DIY For home use: TV's
Everyone has a TV, so why not install some leds or neon tube behind your TV? All you require is any led designed for 12V use and a AC-DC adaptor. Look under LED Neon in Home to learn more about AC-DC adaptors.
One question may remain, how do you have your LED turn on/off with your TV. One way to accomplish this, if you have a Home receiver is to hook the AC-DC adaptor to the back of the receiver. Most receivers should have AC output on the back to power CD players and other accessories. You can use one of these slots or split it with a surge protector. This way, once your receiver turns on, so does your leds. You don't have to bother un-plugging the AC adaptor.
