    Looks good. It should be noted that if you use a powersupply such as the OPUS, you'll have a main cable going to the battery, a wire to the ignition, and the contacter would be replaced with the wire from the OPUS.

    It's also important to note the IDE>USB adapter. Even though you are using a USB2.0 hub, when you put 1.1 devices on the hub, it causes all the devices attached to it to run at USB1.1 speeds. This may not be perferable since USB1.1 operates at 12MB/s while USB2.0 operates at 480MB/s. Recommend, in this case, that it gets its own USB cable going to the motherboard.

    Also, if popping noises are heard for the speakers during powerup, the use of some sort of delay timer or circuit may be needed. Search the board for options (I've posted in some of them.)

    Attached is my propsed wiring that I plan on using. (You'll see that my DVD and touchscreen are on the same hub. This is a mistake during drawing and I just have not taken the time to change it.)

      Newbie here.

      Shouldn't there be a fuse on the battery's 12V line out? If so. how big should it be?

      Thanks.

                The one at the bottom is the creative usb soundcard feeding audio to the amplifier above it.

                  I dont get how the PC is powered. Is that a spare battery? And are you running it through an invertor or something?

                    BMWs have their batteries in the trunk. since he has the IGN line into the PC it looks like he has some DC PS with a startup/shutdown controller.

                      Is there any ways that the amp's "remote" can be connected to the computer or LCD screen instead of the ignition?

                      Say sometimes I drive with no music and I don't need the amp to be turned on.
