Looking to add a little color to your Evo's interior? Diode Dynamics' RGBW Multicolor Footwell LED kits are the way to do it! By adding Diode Dynamics' LED strips under your dash, you can add RGBW color-changing ability to your Evo's footwell area.

This kit is not just RGB, it is RGBW! That means there is an extra integrated LED chip that is specifically white in color, right next to the standard red, green, and blue LEDs. By using an RGBW controller, you can activate and control the white chip independently of the colors. This provides a much more uniform, pure, and bright white color than the traditional method of combining all RGB signals.

Our Bluetooth Controller will allow you to choose any color under the sun, including True White, directly from your phone! Our mobile app includes a wide variety of features including strobe and fade effects, preset colors, Camera Match, Music Sync, and much more. Our controller will also allow you to adjust the brightness of the LED strips. Any time you power up your strips, they will default to the last color that was previously selected.

These LED strips in this kit are highly flexible and waterproof. They feature high-density LEDs chips for brighter output and barrel-style M8 connectors for a secure connection.

Included in the 2-Piece Kit:

  • Two (2) 50cm RGBW SMD30 Strips
  • One (1) wiring harness (4-foot)
  • Two (2) quick splices
  • One (1) red LED toggle switch
  • One (1) DC-to-DT adapter
  • Four (4) zip-ties
  • One (1) 3M outdoor adhesive pad
Included in the 4-Piece Kit:

  • Four (4) 50cm RGBW SMD30 Strips
  • One (1) wiring harness (4-foot)
  • Two (2) quick splices
  • One (1) red LED toggle switch
  • One (1) DC-to-DT adapter
  • Eight (8) zip-ties
  • Two (2) 3M outdoor adhesive pads
  • Two (2) RGBW M8 extension wires



The 2-piece kit includes everything you need to install LED strips in the front footwell area on both the driver and passenger sides of your vehicle. The 4-piece kit includes everything you need to install LED strips in the front and rear footwell areas on both the driver and passenger sides of your vehicle. This kit is very universal in nature and can be tapped into any 12V power source that you would like when installing.

Can you post a picture of the kit itself?

Yes, you can wire them to come on and off with the dome light. They will fade on and off the same way the factory lighting does.

It makes the installation more involved, but it can be done

Would the controller still be used in that case for the multi-color or can it be eliminated somehow and installed similarly to the single color (which doesn't use the controller)?

The Multicolor requires the controller to power the strips. If the dome light is on, you'll be able to change the colors like normal, (when it's receiving current) if you tap into that source.

Feel free to give us a call and we can give you more information about the installation: (314) 205-3033

I like my rice lol. There actually is a factory option footwell and dash trim lighting kit that was available in japan. I got in on my car about 3 years ago, its nice having the footwells come on only when the door is open.


Theres also all the ricers with too agressive top aero without the underbody aero to match.

Not usually a fan of interior lighting, but this is kinda cool. Probably will still opt out of installing them on my car.
It's a quick upgrade that adds a unique look to the footwell area

Not for everyone, but it's a cool upgrade

Thanks for checking it out

These are cool, been looking for something to spice up the inside a bit more.

Not a bad price either.

I gotta check out the wiring options, I'd want these to go on instead of the dome light. Might be a pain to do.

It can be done, but we don't have vehicle-specific instructions on wiring them to come on/off with the dome lighting

Product:
Diode Dynamics LED Multicolor Footwell Kit ( http://www.diodedynamics.com/store/...gb-multicolor-diode-dynamics-footwell-led-kit)

Configuration/Price:
RGB Footwell Kit ($40)
Rear Footwell LED Addon Strip Kit ($25)
Bluetooth RBG Controller ($60)

Pictures:




General Information:
Footwell Lighting....

Brightness:
The first picture is where I keep it. Just felt obligated to put the others because I don't want people to get the idea that it's not that bright (if that's your thing). They get very bright. I'm just more of a fan of the low subtle lighting so I keep mine low (once again personal preference).

Installation:
I got the addon for the rear seats as well. Very very simple installation, I did it roughly in about 8 minutes, and that's coming from a person who installed his testpipe backwards.

Remote:
Got the Bluetooth remote, which is really nice. Change color setting using color wheel. You can save presets. There's a pretty detailed scripting system built in that you can configure lighting sequences. You can also have it beat with the music whether preloaded or reactive to any music.

Pros:
+ Bright
+ Tons of Options
+ East Installation

Cons:
While I'm at shows people typically ask me to have my car on because they want to hear the lope of the cams which is fine. I typically park next to my friend who I had aspirations of annoying him by putting on the sound reactive option and playing this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKA0GUJ3E2g

but alas even with the lowest sensitivity and the phone right next to the speaker, it is still constantly on due to the exhaust (Full Straightpipe, ETS Testpipe, ETS Extreme Catback) So I guess it's more of a setup issue, so you might not run into that situation, just figured I'd point that out in case you also had aspirations of annoying your friends.

This was not meant to be a formal review obviously, else I would have included more pics/video. I literally put this together in the span of 4 minutes, and half of that was uploading the pics. If you have any questions feel free to PM.

BTW: That's the DiodeDynamic Map Lights. Classy Bright white looking.

Adjustable brightness settings are one of the best features of the multicolor kit IMO. It's nice to be able to adjust it to exactly where you want it.

Thanks for the detailed write up!
