    Wink Dreamcast with mp3 player

    Hi there dudes, i am making a car mp3 player using only a Dreamcast system and a NTCS LCD Screen of 5",

    I need help fast hooking up power to the system, but besides from that, everything is solved, i build this system with this costs:

    LCD Screen 5" with remote control and 2 Video signals in: $ 150
    Dreamcast system : $ 99

    Cheap, right ? The mp3 software is a copy of Blaze mp3 that is sells everywhere, but i cant wait until DreamAMP is out, with some cool winamp visualization equalizers.

    Please help me out with the power stuff.. If you want pics request them to me, and i can take them asap and send them up.

    Get an Inverter. As I doubt a Dreamcast will run off 12vdc. I picked up a 600watt for about 85$.
    Clarion 200watt head unit w/ Aux in.
    Kicker 800watt 4 channel amp
    In a 96 Grand Prix SE.

    I highly doubt you'd need that much

    200W should be fine, and those are about $40

    I dont own one, and have never really looked at them, so I dont know what sort of power requirements they have.

    Take the power adapter that the dreamcast comes with, and read off anything on the label.

    Unless it has an AC cord that plugs right into it. If it has an AC cord, get an inverter.

    If it has a box ( Transformer ) post the specs on the transformer.

    gizmomkr : i didnt mean to be rude, of course that i apreciate a lot the help that you people give me, that make me feels like there is some one out there, that really care about this project, and not like all others that said, "hey man, why you do that", or "it wont work !" .It seens that i am just too anxious looking answers that i didnt realize that you were really trying to help, and i didnt noticed that... Farewell now, and really thanks a lot.

    No, your not being rude - but you asked a question, and Im trying to answer it - So i will ask again.

    Take the power adapter that the dreamcast comes with, and read off anything on the label.

    or does it have a straight feed from the AC into the unit ?

    If it takes AC Directly, pop open the cover take a pic of the area where the ac comes in.
