Can I use a transistor to change the glow intensity of EL Wire to music? Answered
I am looking to do something similar to this: https://www.instructables.com/id/Music-LED-Light-Box/
but with EL Wire. Is it possible to use the same setup and just have the transistor as an interrupt between the wire and the inverter, or would it be a better idea to use a transistor that operates at a different voltage/amperage?
As a follow up, would the audio signal itself need to be amplified for the best effect, or should it be fine on its own?
I am intending to run it off of my iPod, but I have the option of routing the signal through a portable headphone amplifier.
To clarify, I want the wire to pulse, flash, glow, what have you to the music. While I realize that such devices exist, I need to
