After soldering the LEDs, then Join the wires to the AUX cord (as shown in the figure 2)

Step 3: Assembling Part

Step 4: Finalizing the Set Up

Now, paste the LED strip on the speaker with DST ( as shown in the figure) and connect the AUX Cord with the OUTPUT of any amplifier.

Note- 1. Don't connect the AUX cord in the headphone jack because the transmission of the audio is not amplified and it will not give any lighting effect.

2. The lights will only twinkle in between 250Hz to 500Hz i.e. specially in BASS BOOSTED songs.

So, the DANCING LIGHT is ready now...!
