The EL wire needs an AC voltage of 120V. The frequency of the AC voltage affects the brightness.

I don't think its as much voltage you need to worry about - that's independent of cable length and is probably more to do with colour than anything, but it WILL depend on current.

Gee, I woke up too late this morning to say the same thing first.
