Your orientation is different but also very interesting. I will be curious to understand how all this works. Is your system sound responsive ?
I particularly appreciate the light pulses, which are less present in my system. What type of drivers do you use?
It's really cool to be able to chain them up too.
Even if I suppose that integration was at least as complex as for me, I confess that I don't like to drill holes everywhere. From my point of view, the mod should not distort the boombox and remain invisible when not in operation.
You would not believe the amount of work I had to invest to get this effect. Drilling holes exactly spaced & perfectly aligned, gluing LED strips just so behind the holes, creating meters & meters of wiring harnesses using 3 & 4 pin fan connectors, combining 2 & three separate LED controllers into some of my mods for the versatility, lifting remote sensors & sensitivity pots from the controllers & installing them on the blaster body, powering them with the original power blocks of each blaster so they're still fuse protected by the original power circuit & work on AC, DC jack or 10 D batteries with no extra connections. Routing, routing & more routing to avoid noise interference, creating custom grounded noise shielding, using copper film tape & on & on & on. It's the details & perfect execution that make the MOD look amazing & sound even better. I've also created a 777 with 3 controllers that kicks the snot out of anything out there, has 2 OHM BOSE woofers to draw out the MAX 45w out of 4 channels, same as the C-100, installed bumper bars at the bottom front & both top sides, so strong you can carry the 30+ lb beast by the 2 side handles alone while protecting the entire front face from a forward fall, custom rigging C-100 LED power meters along the bottom front edge & hooking them up to the Super-Woofer channels, etc. These mods go much farther than just 2 LED woofer rings & one module but most people only see a butchered grail which is sad really.
I've had copycats try to do the same & claim originality & failed miserably to even come close to this type of attention to design, detail & functionality. Almost anyone can run a LED strip around a woofer edge, hook it up to a controller & call it a day. Heck, the first 777's with LED mods used sound sensitive auto & boat woofer rings, maybe a couple of LEDs to light the VU's but no one, as yet has come close to the level of intricacy or detail that goes into what I've been doing for the last almost 5 years now.
That's why I really dig what you've done so far since it is an evolution of the art in a different direction, not simply a re-hash of my ideas. I got sick of people trying to rip my work off without giving me any credit for inspiring them while the traditional collectors trashed me because I made something unique that they couldn't have.
Before even adding a 3 controller LED DISCO system, I replaced the woofers for better sound, used hemi-orange paint to bring out the M90's design & added bumper bars for ruggedness & protects the face, new trim, etc.
The LED strip with LEDs firing down from the top tuner window edge was the hardest to install of all my Mods. It had to be angled just right under the aluminum trim to allow the tuning pointer to move freely without snags. I literally had to hold the strip in place, bit by bit while the glue epoxy cured. Not easy to do but the holographic effect is worth every drop of sweat & determination to me...
I use RGB Led controllers that have 16 colors & 4 modes, including 2 sound activated, Strobe & Flash to sound changes. All modes are remote controllable & any one remote can control any boombox LED system so I can daisychain as many together as I want for sound & control them all as one.
