As promised, here are some pics and a small video of my light show.
The controller for the lightshow is from solsticewerks.com. It is a 16 channel controller, but I blew out a couple of channels so they stay lit all the time. Here is a pic.
The light controller is in the center and it feeds all the light plugs. The sockets are just screwed onto a 2X8 board and is set into a rubbermaid tub. This worked pretty well in the rain. I cut slits in the side of the tub to run the wires. No water got into the tub whatsoever.
I also built a FM transmitter to play the song to car radios. I made a sign.
The transmitter I used was a ramsey FM 10C http://www.ramseyelectronics.com/cgi-bin/commerce.exe?preadd=action&key=FM10C
It is a nice kit. I would recommend it for this application.
The software I used is Vixen. http://www.vixenlights.com/
Now I need to get more songs to play.
