    Hi everyone i have 6 dark blue loccaly made beer bottles. My idia is to make a compact frame to hang the bottles each with cold cathodes inside and a box to house a 4 channel splitter feeding 3 sound activated inverters to feed the 6 cathodes.Basically i am wondering if before i buy all the parts has anyone done this before or have any idia about sound holes or mounting and soo on.

    What do you expect these "cold cathodes" to do when electrified? What type of voltage are they electrified with?

    My sample cold K's operate at about 5kV from a 5V inverter. Bright white LEDs can be moduleted, or to flash like lightning.
