Carputer status: [-*---------]
Im thinking laptop...
Easiest mount is ridgid... do that
lol. i know bass is a sickness. i started with just two 12's almost 2 years ago, then when I bought my new Integra decided to add two more amps and 4 more subs (actually going to be 5 total now, as I cannot find the space for a 6th sub). I am eager to hear it. my car has been apart since last Sept. and too cold to get motivated to finish it over the winter, so finishing soon. Carputer is in, PS2 coming in tomorrow, waiting on motorized screen and building two custom sunvisor monitors. should be pretty sweet when all is done (plus a ****load of neon and strobes)
also, just an update. I got a decent fix for the issue of the magnetic fields of the subs in relation to the hard drive. i bought 2 feet of the "joint tape" on the following site, which will greatly eliminate the magnetic field introduced to the hard drive(s)
I have real world experiance and testing... Have stated this multiple times. Solid mount, Desktop drive. Multiple car wrecks no Hard drive problems over 5 years of use.Originally Posted by sansoo24
Thanks truckin for the info you have shared. THis type of info and experience in my book is far better than all the speculation out there.
thanks again for your support
When I was building my carputer, I kept thinking of ways of to protect my hard drive and this is what I came up with.
To fit in my van, I decided to mount the hard drive vertically. So I figured out a way to mount it using long little screws that screws attached to plexiglass, then I figured why not have them move so if it hit a bump it could move like a shock absorber. So i went to home depot and looked for some small pieces of rubber, and i found them in the plumbing department they compress down and then pop back up, they are about the size of finger in circumferance, and about a centimeter tall. There was some extra space when i put them in, so i filled it will small squares of cardboard stacked on top of each other till it was tight. Now it moves just enough to absorb shock and vibration and is strong enough that it doesnt just move around all the time.
So, basically this creates a shock absorber, just like in a car.
