  • 2005 Honda Civic Coupe

    Even with all the complaints, I think I'm going to stick with computers through the future of all my cars. It's not bad, just got a few things to tweak.

    1. cover the wires in that black piping covering
    2. replace the amp I fried so I can add the subwoofer I have
    3. change the viewing angle on the screen so it's more level with the driver
    4. move the screen just a little so the white/black stripes at the top of the screen aren't visible. Not sure what they are....touchscreen wires?
    5. mount the components onto points in the trunk
    6. find a better way to get the trim panel to stay in the dash

          I think the lines on the screen you mention, is the top border of the touchscreen. Meant to be hidden under the bezel kind of part. If you can, just try to push up the overlay. I think that is what it is. Don't go breaking though if I'm wrong!

            Oh, and hows your GPS reception in the vent like that? Good fast locks? I'm relocating mine in my '01 coupe, and thinking sorta same place.

              I've never ever ever ever used GPS before......like I didn't even know how it worked, never seen it used before....so I don't know what to compare it to. But anyway, it locks in about 3 seconds. I hit HOME or I put in an address and it says it's waiting for the GPS signal, I leave the driveway/parking lot, and by the time I hit the road, it's telling me to turn left or right. I have underground parking under my apartment building, and as I'm driving through there, it's following me on the screen. Not sure how that works, but it does under that much concrete. Though I live on the 4th floor and my pager alarm still works, so it's probably not that thick.

                      I found a much much better solution to two huge problems I was having with the screen.
                      1. Holding the circuit board to the back of the screen.
                      2. Holding the bezel into the dash.

                      Solution: sticky velcro. It has a sticky tape backing on one end so you just stick it to both sides and velcro them together. I was talking it over with my friend and he just suggested it to me like I was an idiot.

                        Here are some updates since I made this topic.

                        Here is a picture of the 4 gauge wire for the subwoofer amplifier going through the firewall.


                        Here's the awesome Street Wires cable I got for the speaker wire. It's 8 wires (2 per speaker) and a remote lead all neatly wrapped in a nice thick jacket. 20 feet of it for $30.


                        And here's the heat shrinked and soldered joins to the wiring harness. I just plug the harness into the dash, plug the wires into the amp and I'm done.


                        I've also got an air ride suspension coming which has its own screen I will put on the visor, and I'm looking at a unit called Connect2Car as well.

                          looking good!

                          Would you mind taking a few more pics of how you mounted the computer/amp? (I see you made an enclosure in the trunk). I am trying to do the same. Keep up the good work.

                            I'm moving the location of everything in the trunk, I'll take pictures of the new places once it's done. Just too hard to do when it's -20 outside.

                              I've relocated the amps and computer, I'll get pictures for you once my car comes back from paint. Here's an updated picture of the exterior.
