    Need recommendations on equipment

    I'm new to the whole carputer idea. I am looking to purchase a 10-12" touch screen monitor to go in the dash of my truck that I am building. I also need a computer to go along with it. I haven't looked a whole lot into it yet so I have some questions. Are you guys using the computer for your main source of processing and music playing ie cd's, mp3's etc.? What programs and operating systems are you using for things such as time alignment, eq etc? I'd really like to have something that will control all of that and be able to feed directly into my amps. I would need something that gives me individual front, rear and sub level controls as well as crossovers. Any recommendations?

    Welcome to MP3car! If you have a look at my work log in the link below you'll see one way to do what you're trying to do using an Alpine processor. Also check out the FAQs, There's a ton of information there. I'm sure others will chime in with different solutions as well.


    Here is a couple links:

    Yeah I had the H701/W200 combo in the truck but it's in my car now. I see the new H800 has a GUI that can be controlled by a PC. Unfortunately it looks like I would need a PC, H800 and a head unit and monitor to do what I want to. I really didn't intend on spending another $2000 so I may look at going another route. This was my truck before I decided to do a complete overhaul:











    and here is the new version of it...Doing two tone Katzkin Tuscany tan leather with red inserts and red piping on seats. Fiberglass dash, console, amp rack/sub box, door panels/plastic panels all wrapped in Katzkin Tuscany. Tan carpet, headliner. Of course all my audio. I have a couple Kicker SX900.4's, a SX700.4 and a SX1250.1, 2 Image Dynamics IDMAX 12's, 2 Image Dynamics IDQ 8's, some Dynaudio MW170's. Not sure what I am using yet though. Probably be running a set of fullrange for my high end. I installed some Fountek FR88 ex's in my car and they sound amazing. Really impressed with those little guys.

    I see you have the FG addition too... it''s a nasty one to shake isn't it. You've done a nice job there, looks good.

    Here's a thread on controlling the 701 with your PC through he AInet but you'll want to know your PC stuff pretty well to dive into it.

    Arguably the 700/701 is still the best process Alpine ever made and they are still out there available used . They don't give them away but they are there.
