  • 2011 Subaru Legacy Install

    Well I have finally got it underway. I am installing my car pc in my 2011 Subaru legacy. Purchased from Quality Subaru, Wallingford CT. I am just in the beginning stages of the project. I think the hardest thing of the install is trying to figure out where to put the hardware. I chose the trunk over the spare tire. Subaru has this nice foam piece that covers the tire, I decided to hack it up to mount the amp and the computer. The only problem I see in this spot is cooling. You can see from my pic (Done in Paint) i am thinking about putting in 4 fans to help in the process of cooling. What do you think?
    More to come
    Thanks
    Mike

    Turn 2 of the fans around so you have 2 intake fans and 2 exhaust fans. That way fresh air comes in, flows over the amps and then the hot air is expelled.

      I know its hard to tell from the pic but the fans up top are blowing up and the fans in front are blowing down

            Wiring

            Well the wiring begain this weekend.
            Ran
            4 AWG to the back to run the computer and amp
            VGA
            USB
            4 Speaker wires
            Also ran some wires for the HDD Light, Power Light and the Reset Switch

            Here are some pics
            You will see that subaru does a nice job with there wiring. They have nice runway. I just used that to add in my wires. Nice and clean. Also had nice gromets ready to sneak the power wires threw. Props to subaru for this. Car was designed to run cables

                            Have you wired aftermarket car speakers from those amps and if so where did you tap into the wires near the speakers. I have a 2011 also and I'm hooking up a 4 way amp and putting in new Kicker KS60's speakers and didn't want to remove the rubber wire housing going from the frame to the door to get to the speaker wires, because i didn't want it to leak later on down the road. Any help would be appropriated.

                            Thanks Dan
