  • 2004 Grand Prix

    Well, I have to get some machine time at work to make my aluminum parts, but at least the planning stage is done! My system will consist of the following goodies:

    1GHz mini-itx board
    512mb ram
    40gig WD 7200RPM drive
    combo dvd-rom/cd-rw slot load drive
    belkin wireless-g usb adapter
    griffin i-mic usb audio (may not end up using it)
    garmin usb gps
    lilliput 7" touch screen
    alps glidepoint "mouse"
    usb rubber keyboard

    alpine era-g320 eq/dsp unit
    alpine 200w sub amp
    xtant 50x4 main amp
    infinity 10" alum sub

    For the main speakers, I'll probably use infinity kappa 6.5" components in the front doors and 2-way 6x9's in the rear deck. I am going to machine a aluminum lcd bezel, as well as something to mount the eq/dsp faceplate in the storage cubby at the bottom of the center stack. Updates to follow when i actually get some work done .

      well, slight change of plans...

      decided to bite the bullet and buy a backup center bezel, hvac controller and cubby pocket- going to glass/bondo/etc everything in just the way i want it. sold my alpine mp3 headunit to a coworker, so i do have more of a "budget" now just wish i knew of a yard with the parts i want, but thats what i get for having a car thats only on its 2nd model year.

          Anyone have any success with 2004-2005 and later Grand Prix?

          I am contemplating the thought of hacking up my dash but i dont want to be a guinea pig. I was wondering if i can move the hvac controls down, then the stock stereo down, leaving the current location of the stereo open for a LCD install.

          i have a mac mini already purchased and 7" lilliput touchscreen that came with it. all works and i have the power supply too.

          any suggestions, pointers, questions, are appreciated.
          thanks

            First post, been lurking for a while though. Sgt. Ducky Boy: As far as moving everything down, if you remove the little "cubby" in the bottom, you give yourself 1 din basically, with the radio being a double-din, your best bet would be to remove the stock radio and either a) relocate it or b) just lose the damn thing. The whole dash "stack" is nothing but screw-holes and plastic flanges to keep everything together

            (Not nearly to scale, but you get the idea)
            To keep this thread on topic, and now that I look at the last post date, resurrected , good luck MP3GTP on your build, I'm stuck with trying to figure out how to hook up my sound card to the wonderful GM Monsoon audio system

              02 GTP here, I dunno bout you guys, but my Standard Radio and CD player controls are a double din, wouldnt it be a good Idea to take those out and put in a double DIN Monitor?

              what are your thoughts?
