Dumb RGB LED's - Mixing Colors


Recommended Posts

Just received my first 300 RGB LED's. These are dumb, just a yellow (+), red, green and blue lead. Each of the colors works great. My question is can I power two of the leads at the same time to get a third color? For example, the blue & red to get purple.


I don't have a controller yet, just the LED's and the power supply.

Welcome to the insanity!


Depending on the controller, you will have between several thousand to over 16 million color possibilities.

Yes you can.

Combine red/blue = megenta
Combine red/green = yellow
Combine green/blue = real light blueish
Combine red/blue/green = white
