planning a carputer, input needed!
pretty soon im gonna start a carputer
im going to have a lilliput molded in-dash, not sure if its gonna be buttonless though
one question i have, im a little skeptical about putting the carputer in the trunk.
in the trunk im going to have a 12" adire brahma with 1200-1500W (still havent decided on the amp yet)
would the massive vibrations destroy the carputer?
i am very experienced in building computers, but never built a carputer. what would be the best material to build the case out of?
planned specs for the carputer:
micro ATX motherboard, socket A w/ ddr and onbard video
512 pc2100ddr (free, i got it sitting here collecting dust)
athlon xp 2400
160gb WD HDD
audigy 2 OEM soundcard
cheapo DVD rom
approx $250-$300 to build that system, and it will perform decent and run anything i need it to
also, it will be powered by the 150W opus
and a 7" lilliput touchscreen
i was thinking mounting the case under the glovebox in the pass side footwell, but id be afriad of stupid passengers kicking it
anyone have any advice/suggestions/comments please let me know
