I did all the calcs with 17.2V, per the drivers spec. Unless that LED array website is just tragically wrong, I need resistors to run the arrays. I can't mix and match the number of diodes to negate the need for resistors, because I will have a certain amount installed in each light fixture. The LED...

That P-30 might end up in my floor lamp, actually. I won't be lighting up the table with LEDs, though. I need a broad diffusion of light for the pool table that only incandescents (or florescents, but I hate them) can do. The LED's are only for effect. The red ones are going to be a night-light, the...

I used http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz to generate the arrays. It gives me the total dissipation of diodes and resistors. What else will draw current? Also, not all of them will be on at the same time. I'm planning on a color selector switch that will only allow one of the three colors at any one tim...

I wasn't planning on building an adapter, no way. :) If there are no stealthier adapters other than a wall wart then I guess I can make do.

That kit looks perfect. Thanks. I wonder if I can bump that up to 12v. I'll be powering 72 LEDs (480mA) as well as this circuit.. Not sure if 9v will cut it?

Sound-sensitive multi-color LED on house current.

I have a pretty fun project that I'd like to complete. It's not terribly complex, but I only know what I need to do, not what the things I need really are.
