    Help installing Monitor

    Hey everyone,

    I am a newbie when it comes to this car audio stuff, i am very intrested in learning how to install a carputer in my car. I have just puchased t view 7' inch monitor and do not know how to install the monitor into my car.

    My question is where do i hook up the 12v red wire on the monitor?
    I know the black ground wire needs to hit something metal but i need to know where i should wire the 12v red wire so when i turn on my car the monitor turns on.

    If somone has diagrams or pictures that would be great

    thanks for your helppp.....

    you're better off wiring it up to whatever power regulator you are using, OPUS, etc...

    the car battery power supply is unregulated and could affect screen performance/life

    i wired up a 12v supply off of one of the molex connectors that come off the OPUS and ran it through the car to the screen
