Default LED Schematic

Ive had a lot of people ask me how I setup my LED system so I decided to make this up. Just a rough schematic on how I did my setup. Please note that all my lights are Streetglow LEDs! They are not Noens! Neons require much more power than LEDs and dont provide as much light as them. I, personally, am running a 7 color LED undercar kit, 1 LED pod, twelve of the 12 inch LED strips, and six of the 3 inch LED strips. All of it is run through the cig lighter so that they can be turned on without a key in the ignition and I have never had overload problems or draining of the battery. I recently ran with all the light on and the radio on for a show for 6 hours and it didnt drain any of the battery down, and its a stock Motorcraft battery.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Thanks guys!

I forgot to mention, I am also under a liscense with streetglow so I can get any Streetglow products for cheaper than retail. So if you are looking to invest in some let me know and I can get a price quote for you.

The JBCustoms thing is a side job for me. I have done multiple cars with full LED systems just like mine so all that I talk about with the lighting is from years of toying around and experience. Heres two of my clients and then my truck. Its a bad pic but it gets the point across.

Thats right... my vent lights are bright enough to where you can see them from a car's perspective. Virginia is also one of the most conservative auto law states so everything is cut throat when it comes to vehicle modification.

Thats funny, I never have problems, and you can see color just glowing everwhere when I drive.












I don't have any bulbs left to make into LEDs...

I make most of my own stuff, with oznium parts mostly.

I try and stay away from switches, I use transistors now to turn my lights on.
