I need some help installing LEDs into a wireless Matrix controller. I have a clear shell installed, and I'm looking into placing the LEDs below the rumble packs.
The LEDs I'll be using are: http://www.superbrig...anging-led/778/
I need to know what resistors to buy and where to solder the wires on the board to get the LEDs be on only when the controller is on. I have two (one to place under each rumble pack). Also, if you could direct me to a cheap soldering iron with solder, that would be great. I'm borrowing one for now. Finally, this is NOT a ring of light mod. Please include pictures of where to solder the wires to on the board or the Wireless Matrix controller, and wires to the LEDs. I already know how to take the controller apart. Thanks!

This is not the exact location you want but it will still show you the points to use:

Under where it says "Lighting the Dome" towards the bottom there is a paragraph that says:




It has a picture next to it that shows the points, plus the paragraph itself describes it.

EDIT:

LOL! It turns out the tutorial I gave you was for a wired controller which drew power off of the usb cable points that obviously doesn't work on a wireless.

So here is a newer and more at home guide: http://www.se7ensins...e-leds-to-them/

It turns out I need to find some other LEDs. If anyone could give me a link to some LEDs compatible with the Matrix Wireless + resistors.
