  • New CarPC member, question on M2-ATX

    All my stuff is on order now. I'm doing up a VoomPC CarPC with M2-ATX and 7" Lilliput touchscreen in my 1996 3000GT VR4. I'm new to this but ready for the project.

    My question is related to the location of the M2-ATX unit. From what I gather (i work in computers) the M2 doesnt install into the VoomPC case, it hangs outside somewhere. Where should I physically put the M2-ATX unit? Should I have it in an enclosure?

    There is only one other 3000GT install on MP3car (under the show off your car section) , but the LCD was done external, mine will be installed in the double din.

    If anyone knows the good places to hook the M2-ATX up to, please let me know.

    Look forward to this project.

    And just so you know the "VoomPC" case is also called the "Ampie" case. You might have better luck searching with that term.

        You should search. http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...ight=voompc+m1 Yes, it MUST be in some type of enclosure.

        Sure, try the ATX connector on your MB and wire coming from your battery

            By seconds, mere seconds. It took me a little longer because I search for both VOOM and M1 and M2, but ya, you won. :P

                Didn't even notice the earlier post, just the one with the pics.

                Ahh hell, wasted all that work. MUHAHAHAHAHA.

                Oh wait, it took a couople of seconds. OP should have done it himself.

                I am humbled in your presence.

                  hahahaha thanks guys for the help. For some reason I thought the M2 was big...I didnt realize it was small and fit inside the voompc case...

                  Now to find out what this "battery" thing is..i hear it supplies something called "electricity"....i think I need that right? (i meant where EXACTLY in a 96 VR4 i could hook it up to)

                    Exactly would be run a thick wire to this modern day leyden jar to feed the M2's +12v const connector (RED) and a smallish wire to the ignition wire of your car (varies so look around das interwebs) to the ign connect on the M2 (WHITE), and the M2's ground (BLACK) to the chassis. Voila. Witness the glory of the flowing electron!

                            sue me for acting stupid? HA, I think you have that backwards...i need to go find him and get the lawsuits going . I guess he *really* must have thought I was going to hook the M2-ATX up to another power source like a hamster on a wheel...i mean that could make electrons right? I would have *never* thought to hook a power supply up to a battery

                              He is the resident lawyer, hence the suing and therefor him winning. He could fight that the earth was flat and he could probably win or scare the other party into some plea bargain for ever doubting the earth was a squished orange!

                              You could just make some huge copper wire loops and fasten them to your car. Then drive around by the high power wires, and "borrow" some electricity.
