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?
