The Opus is 150 watt isn't it? And it's not that much more expensive than this MPBS supply...Originally posted by Ritalin Kid
Ok thus far I'm about 6 months into my Carputer project my specs are as follows:
1. My PSU isn't enough I have to underclock the CPU to get it to boot properly else it starts to boot to Windows and then crashes or turns off. I did have an extra 64 Meg stick of Ram I also ditched to save power... SO I guess the question is who makes the smallest 150 watt DC-DC PSU? Cause the MPBS1 isn't cutting it.
You won't get rid of noises by filtering, at least not without filtering some of your music as well. It seems you just have to toy around with your wiring scheme -especially power and ground wires I think- to get rid of this.
2. I have the carputer hooked up into the MP3/AUX on my Blaupunkt through the special cable I bought for it seperately. I ran all the power down one side of my car and all audio down the other.. everything is either grounded seperately or straight grounded to the battery. I get not only alternator noise but also all kinds of funky low rumbling noises when the hard drive is working. SO I guess the second question is what should I do to get rid of the weird noises? Are there any special filters I need to use?
BTW; with that screen this is really a HUGE setup.
