2 open wires???? maybe they are ground and power so you would connect the ground to ground and the power to power. Why would they connect to your "halo lights" or are these for DRL in your headlights?

Big box for lighting?????? accessory port???? HUH sounds like a Dr Seuss book.

You hook the power wire up to a 12V power line that is only active when the ignition is on.

Depending on were you are installing these strips and how you intend to use them the story changes. Some circuits in the car are ground switched and some are power switched.

Can you please tell us what the heck you are trying to do and we may be more helpful, so far all we have are riddles.

Looking at the other thread you posted in I am guessing now you are installing LED angel eyes in your headlights? correct. If this is the case you have two options to power them;

1 tap into the power line for the parking lights so the angle eyes will turn on with the parking lights

2 run a switch into the cabin connection one side of the switch to a 12v accessory line (I have no idea were you would find a safe one to use without running directory from the fuse box under the bonnet).

Finally with limited knowledge you seem to have do you think it is such a good idea you attempt to pull you headlights apart, I mean they are a couple of hundred dollars a pop if you screw them up. This risk is the reason I have not tried myself.

Can LED strips serve as the main light of a room?
Thanks in advance.


Yes
It depends how many leds you have and how bright you want it

Just remember if you want "room" leds for your house to get the 240v ones not the standard old 12v ones for cars or you lights will turn into an instant BBQ
