    xbox 360 and 19" wide lcd screen

    Ok looking to put these into my almera (see the pic)

    Ive been told using a usual ciggie coverter wont work as the xbox and the tv will suck too much power, is this correct? Been told i can adda second battery and do a split charge system but thats way too far over my head, lol

    Need to know as I need to get it finished and no point contnuing if it dont work, lol, the car will be runnign whilst its on by the way

    this is the tv - http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...er/5291883.htm

    and its just a usual xbox 360.

    Amp and 2 12" subs will just go through the usual setup.







    Thankyou for your time.

    I would recommend running power from the battery with a fuse.
    An AMP install kit will show you what to do and include the wire, conectors and stuff.

    For mine, I didn't want any problems so I got a screen that was 12 volts. I ordered another m2-atx so I can power that screen and a few other things If i need to. I could have gone the inverter route, but it seems it would have costed around the same price.

    This route was less bulky, and I can add more devices.

    That is fine if the inverter will meet your needs. The power for the inverter should come from the battery, not the cig. plug.

    Read up on this issue, plenty of info.
