Question Music Synchronized Lights

So I basically would just like to hook up my computer speakers to a set of string lights I have so that as the audio output rises from songs being played on my computer, the lights will either brighten or dim. It would be similar to this, except for the fact that I will have the lights hooked up in my room.

I know how to do what is shown in the video, but I don't want to actually get the software and run the required channels for each second of a song. I want it so that when the bass rises, a set of green lights will brighten, and when the treble rises, the red lights will brighten, and same with mid levels.

One of my high school teachers did it, but I can't get into contact with him about, but I do know it can be done. Should I just take out the speaker unit of the main speaker, then wire up a relay and a cross over to it, then hook the lights up to that, or is there another way I can actually do it?

These are the speakers I have.Logitech x 230
This is the computer I have.HP Pavilion a1310n running Windows XP

Is there another way I could be doing this or is my head in the right spot?
