Um, ancient tech? Like late 90s/early 2000s, hehe. There is a mic in the control box for the neon(s) which turn them on/off when it hears a sound in a certain frequency. If I recall, there were several frequencies available (although i dont remember if each required its own controller) that could allow you to make a "light show" in your case, with certain colors reacting to certain frequencies of a song.

Yes you can turn the light completely off, you can make it so it is always on, and you can make it so it is sound sensitive, and you can adjust the sensitivity..

Sound activated cold cathode.
