    As you probably know, EL-Wire inverters give off a high pitched whine. I love the wire and don't want to get rid of it, however I do want to somehow dampen out the noise without covering it up with stuff (bad air flow, bad bad idea).

    Any suggestions folks? I'm 18 and have good hearing so it's quite an annoying sound lol.

    electroluminescent wire, google it :) It's a bit like a CCFL except it's bendy wire instead.

    I've seen the stuff, never really got excited about wrapping it around my wires. :D

    Other than replacing the inverter, I have no idea what you'd do for that issue.
