Some guidance would be lovely
I'm going to apologise now if I ask an obvious question but I have looked around for a good few months now and now I'm just more confused.
I have a Holden Commodore and can accommodate a double din radio. Looking at many reviews double din PC's are not the way to go. With this I want to find the cheapest but doesn't need to be cheap (if that makes sense....) way of building this to my needs.
There seems to be lots of front ends and I do keep coming back to centrafuse as it seems so much more polished and active. Should I be looking at anything else???
As to my requirements, it seems being in the uk for some more bespoke stuff means importing but hey I own and oz car in the uk.... I'm getting used to that!!!
I must have ODBII connectivity. There is no great place to put guages with out it looking bolt on. It would be nice to work with my Wide band but not essensial as I can use my innovate wireless unitand logworks on windows if needed when I'm testing and tuning.
Radio is also a must. I'm not wanting to run a separate amp. I'm trying to minimise foot print to hide it all away and look stock. I have seen the small 4 speaker RCA to clam connectors and this looks like an idea.
I don't require a DVD or CD player as I will use USB or HDD to play MP3's and Videos
My thoughts to do this is.......
Use a I dash screen and then I have room behind my screen for a USB hub or Two and the speaker amp that can plug in to my existing ISO connector wiring. This means I only need to run 2xRCA leads and a USB for connections up front.
I'm relocating my battery to the rear soon so this resolves log power cabling but that either way is easy to resolve too.
Use an SSD for speed to boot from to put music on too also reduce heat. what I'm not sure on is what spec I should build too?? obviously overspec means extra cost. I'm not going to push the limits of this. But will want to add some extra features at some point.
Rear camera and or parking sensors. Saw the centrafuse plugin that has been made for that... I like that idea.
So is my thought train sound. What is my best source for cases, amps and Is there better than centrafuse.
Thankyou for your time all
