How to hook up a microphone to sound responsive led circuit? Answered
i want to make a deadmau5 helmet for a friend, and i want the eyes to light up. i have an old circuit saved from speakers like this:
except the speakers light up in response to music. I gutted the speakers a while ago for another project, but the leds from it still light up when plugged into an ipod. I would like to hook up a mic to it so that it will light up to noise instead of having it plug into an ipod, however the mic only has +/- terminals from what i can tell, and the headphone wire-input has 3. Im no EE, is the green one supposed to be the ground, and the red/copper are the +/-?
here is the mic i am looking at:
here is the circuitboard (i circled the wires in question):
