Ok so I've been looking at getting this:
But the problem is that it says it'll make your neon tubes dance to the music... But I want to go with LED's because they're cheaper and won't act differently in different weather... So am I going to have a problem if i try and hook-up LEDs to this interface? Thanks.

no it wont be hard at all to hook up but those things just get old because it seems like you constantly have to keep adjusting them

I use that same controller. I run cold cathodes, neon and LEDs off of mine.
A nice feature of this controller are the "distribution blocks". It comes with two but you can add two more for a total of four. The distribution blocks can be placed anywhere in the car and each block has four + & - connections to which you wire the lights. So instead of having to run all the wires from all your lights to the controller you wire the lights to the distribution blocks and run the one + & - from the block to the controller. Saves a lot of wiring.
The sensitivity range on this controller is huge. I run one of these in my car and one in my shop. Long story, but I have five sets of cold cathodes and three 12" neon lights running off of one controller in my shop. I can set the sensitivity to make the lights respond to a quiet conversation or dance perfectly with my two 650w PA speakers pumping (another long story).
I highly recommend this controller especially over the cheap little ones they sell at the popular lighting sites. I burned up three or four of those before I finally stepped up to the StreetGlow. No regrets.

Ya, should work, just make sure your LED's are the appropriate voltage of the source and vice versa.
LED's are VERY voltage sensitive, they're designed to work only at a specific input power.
So if you have that part straight, you shouldn't have any issues whatsoever.
