Anyone know of any Electro Luminescent Wire Inverter that doesnt whine?

So, I have used an EL Wire in my build, but the inverter is so whiny! .. A super high pitch sound. I know it is the nature of the power needed to power an EL wire but I heard that there are ways of making them quieter or buying a quieter one.

Anyone know of any that are compact also?

I am very sory that i cant help you (i have a battery powered EL wire and it doesnt make a sound but this is probably not an option for you) but damn!!! This build looks good! like WOW!

short of building your own, I dont know of any non-noisy ones. you could start by opening it up, discharging the caps for safety and putting some silicon or epoxy on the inductor, though

Build a small box to enclose it. See here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8hLXJUQFoc @11:10
