  • Has anyone ever used a Sony 10 disk CD changer as a carpc enclosure?

    I gutted mine, it wasn't working anymore anyways. I measured it and I think I have *just* enough room for an EPIA and an Opus 90W, maybe an HDD. The CD cartridge door will open to reveal the I/O panel with the audio jacks and plugs for quick adjustments. The best part about it is, I can mount it right back up in the trunk to the factory location using brackets... and then cover it with carpet. The install would look completely factory. All I gotta do is see if I can jam a PC inside there and figure out how to secure the electronics to it.

    This is the guy I got the idea from, but his website sucks and top is different: http://www.carputerclub.com/

    ^-- Here you can see how he jammed the PSU, HDD, EPIA, and TV Card(?) in there

    This is what it will look like. Mmm... can't beat that OEM finish....


    ^-- I/O panel will be revealed when opening the sliding door. Its about 6".





    While I'm here, I'd like to ask why the M10000 is so popular on this website. The EPIA MII 1.2 and 1.0 are newer and have more features, why does everyone here have an M10k? Is it better suited for our purposes than the MII's?

                  I tried this long ago and found out the hard way that the CD changer case is conductive to electricity ....

                  check out these pics

                  and this is with a full size ATX mobo ! PW 70 power supply and crappy itps, funny how nothing in this box still works !!!! the PW 70 and itps would only power this when the engine was running, current install is much smarter

                    Cool looking box. Maybe you should've sprayed it with non-conductive spray paint or something. Surely there is a way around that.

                      I can't speak for everyone on here. But i got my m10000 just before the MII's were available.

                        So if someone replaced your M10k with an MII you would be happy?

                          as to my box....If I had to do it now I would mount the items differently and properly, double sided tape and mobo standoffs just dont cut it, but if anyone wants the stealth look then a cd shuttle case is the beans !!!!

                              I know its a honda OEM changer but it may offer some ideas. I'm personally looking to use my oem tape/cd unit.
