  • alpine, mcintosh & chopped up liquid cooled dell++

    This is my multimedia'd & pc'd minivan under construction


    as far as the system goes;

    alpine iva d300 touchscreen(chopped & modded for flush mount, no ejecting screens here, I'm going for that factory feel), alpine navigation & co-pilot live as a back up, alpine pxa h701 processor(this is a sick piece, highly recommended...), mcintosh amps(1,200 true watts rms), illusion audio compression loaded horn drivers, 10" illusion audio carbon fiber/neodymium shallow mount sub's in the FRONT doors(front stage in this car is pretty awsome), xm & soon sirius,single jl 13w6 sub in rear, to much to list...

    rear seats get ps2 & gamecube & dvd, seperate tft touch pc screen for rear pasengers, icon 15.2" dropdown in the suede headliner(the reason for a rear view camera instead of a mirror, you wouldn't see anything through the mirror when that's down anyway )

    pc is a "cube" that's been chopped with power supply & drives removed, powered by an opus 150, 2.8 p4 w/1gig ram,multiple hard drives ,verizon broadband wireless 24/7 unlimited access,blue tooth & wireless lan,illuminated zippy keyboards in both visors & a third in rear, for rear 7" vga touch monitor,lilliput 8" touchscreen up front (gotta replace this, not nearly bright enough to keep up with the alpine screens) I am going to switch out to a water cooled system to cut the noise down to zero, i experimented with a/c cooling, but condensation to much of an issue, & I may under clock a little to reduce temps & increase relibility, I don't want a fan buzzing in my center console...
    EDIT: the p4 is being scrapped for a pentium m centrino setup, pics up soon


    dynamat, dynamat, dynamat...

    I did extensive work on this vehicle to quiet it & make it ride "mercedes like". I removed the dashboard & a/c box from the firewall & triple layered it & then recovered it with the factory pad, I thermal wrapped & insulated the whole a/c heater box to quiet the airflow & insulate, hood liner & fender liners sound proofed,the whole van is dynamated, foamed & padded top to bottom, in & out, she rides NICE, at least as good as a cadillac, interior is custom katzkin two tone leather with montana embroidered in the seats & perferated inserts, headliner & roof is dynamated, then 2" acoustic foam mylar lined & suede

    you are looking at over 6 months of work here, & there is much more to this than meets the eye. the security system is comprised of onstar & a high end wireless two way remote system that uses spread spectrum tecnology for increadable range, & gps tracking in the works

    well, wadayathink?

    EDIT: my pictures were lost on my server & rather than starting a new thread, I figured I'd just edit this to add pictures back,they may not be in order for the few posts to make sense, but here they are starting with a before:

      headliner front monitor is primarily for rear view

      this is an idea of how much dynamat was used & to what extent...., there is alot more covering the whole roof & everything else really, the roof also has a layer of 1" accoustic foil backed foam between the roof & headliner, when heavy rain hits it it sounds like wood.

            Watch out with the onstar. I read something a couple months back they got in trouble for allowing Police/FBI to listen in on conversations in peoples cars (since they have a mic to communicate with the operator) without a warrant or other proper authority to do so. Not that I think your dealing drugs or anything but just for the sheer lack of protecting peoples privacy I will never buy a car with onstar.

              I have my onstar modded, & the mic can be switched & usually is unless I'm using it for the onstar, this mic is also shared with my bluetooth hands free kit & is switched back & forth as necissary. I could have killed power to the onstar at will, but I really don't care if the fbi sees me travel back & forth to work, I think there is a lot more hype to this than necissary, belive me th fbi isn't wasting there time listening in on average joes, if your a criminal I can see your concern, but if not, I don't think this is a big deal, & if it is, it doesn't take much to cut the system off at will, to not buy a vette, a dts or an escalade or something because of onstar is a little extreme....

                    crazy.... i am VERY interested in your work w/ the d300. Can you explain to me about taking it apart, such as how you got the screen out, was it very complicated, did you use any ribbon cable extensions, all the info you can provide, as i may do this someday.

                        very very nice install! Question: That keyboard. What size is it? What is it? And where did you get it?

                          which one, steering wheel or visor? the sunvisor is an illuminated "zippy model # ...610" i think, it lights up blue, & the steering wheel one is a modified gyration rf wireless chopped up & re-shaped. This was pretty tricky as I had to buy a few of these keyboards to finally get it right, keyboards don't like to be bent & curved

                              Ohhh... muthafck... HOW ONE IS ABLE TO DO SOOOO MUCH OF EVERYTHING ON HIS CAR!?! Its INCREDIBLE, its just pure CRAZY!!! Are you both automechanic and computer geek all together?
                              I know, I'd porobably be carazy enough to do such, as well being able to do it technically, however I have both not enough time nor so much money to do that...
