Quoted from delt31:
those lights do look nice. Diff b/w delux and non? Are the ones in that pic delux?
Yeah, the pic on the bottom is deluxe. You can tell as some of the bulbs in the picture are lit red while others are lit yellow.
The differences between my Standard and Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits are described here:
The basics being that the deluxe kits use individually addressable LEDs. So each bulb around the frame can be on or off at the same time and also be different colors at the same time. These lights are higher current and need their own power supply to operate (which is included with the deluxe light kit).
The standard kits use....well, standard RGB LED light strips. That means all of the bulbs on the strip have to be lit the same at all times. So if one bulb is blue, the whole strip is blue. If one bulb is at half brightness, they are all at half brightness. If one bulb is turned off, they are all turned off....etc.
The addressable bulbs basically make it so there can be much more elaborate light transitions and color patterns (358 different color / transition effects). If you are going to set the lights at red and leave it (or want a basic 3 or 7 color fade or flash pattern)....you might as well get the standard kit, but if you want red lights chasing, stacking and swirling....you will need the deluxe kit for that.
