Insert the dimmer between the 12v DC power source and the lights. Clip both wires and strips the 4 ends. Insert them into the green wire block, "IN" is for the wires from power, "OUT" goes to the lights.
FAQs for Kick KR6 Dimmer
If I dim my lights really low will they flicker?
A: No. LEDs needs a constant current, in our case 12v DC. They don't turn off and on rapidly but rather fade off so when current is pulsed, as this dimmer does, the effect is less light output and less electricity consumed.
I already have Leviton dimmers in the wall. why can't I just use those?
A: Standard wall dimmers work by reducing the voltage available to incandescent lights. They don't work with fluorescent or LED lighting.
Can I use this in vehicles where I am grounding to the frame?
A: These won't work in a circuit where you are grounding. You must use the positive and negative wiring from the dimmer.
Where does this go in the wiring of the lights?
A: This dimmer must be wired after a transformer. Dimmer switch will pulse 12v DC current so it has 12v DC current coming in and is outputting 12v DC current which is rapidly pulsed to produce dimming.
Does the KR6 reduce the voltage going to the LED lights?
A: No. It works by reducing the current. Dimming by reduced voltage, as is done with incandescent lighting, is not recommended with LED.
