This led mod can be done without changing the external aspect of the boombox.

Title : FM Attack - Sleepless Nights
 
Vidéo & Pics : https://photos.app.g...EfIdO2DLxacI033

  • Arduino Uno based
  • Adressable WS2812B RGB Led strip
  • Stereo sound responsive from lineout 
  • Works on any sources
  • M70 light switch allow to switch on/off and sereval mode.
  • Manual or Autochange patterns

 
Compatible devices
Every boombox equiped with line out port can be upgraded.
The challenge is about led integration. (speakers/grid shape) but they can be placed everywhere (radio scale, tape...)

 

Code & Schematics available on https://github.com/Dancorp/GhettoLed

I'm confused at how you have so many options with the lighting effects. This is a pretty rad setup.

:thumbsup: Thanks !

I have to finish it and i will probabily share everything needed to diy.

This version is based on Output Line to be sound responsive, so you will have to mod a Lineout equiped boombox.

Interesting, never thought of using the output. Very interested in the method for this!

Yup!!  Wicked as fark!!  Love the routines...

 

Are they programmed by you or out of the box, etc?

Routines come from the FastLed (Arduino Library) community.
Especially from Cine-lights https://www.youtube....vpDa1c8gHWZI5CQ

I have customized somes, and still work on them.

Sadly I know zip about Arduinos so this is beyond my skill set currently :-(

This is way better. A lot more tasteful than what I’ve previously seen.

Nice work

I have to agree.  I've always had an ideal in my mind that I could not achieve with the controllers at my disposal.  The title 'JVC M70 EVOLVED LED MOD' is particularly curious to me because this comes closer to what i could imagine as possible.  Having a programmable PWM computer module that could use software language to control LED's would open up endless possibilities,as far as lighting effects....especially with individually addressable LEDs, etc...

Known issues:

- Some lillte ground noise.

 

Maybe you could try a DC-DC converter?

Nope, 5VDC come from a dedicated power supply, i pretty sure the noise does'nt come from a kind of ground loop.

The noise stop when i unplug the lineout from the arduino. I have to use a filter i think.

I'd bet it may in fact be a ground loop, but through the negative sides of the line-outs. That was my problem when I hardwired a Bluetooth module in one of my radios. The audio negatives were connected to the negative on the module, so using them all made a sound. Also grounding in the wrong spot did it too. It had to be grounded to the main ground
