I'm doing a sound controlled christmas lighting. i bought an SSR with 3-32 vdc input and 24-380 VAC output. I inserted a 1n4001 diode to create a pulsating dc input. my problem is my AC output is flickering which means my input always falls below 3 vdc. Can i insert an RC circuit to smoothen my pulsating input? what value of resistor would i use so as not to attenuate my input voltage so much. i don't want my music volume to be very loud of course.
