    few questions

    ok coming this summer i am going to work on my car. i plan to redo my dash center console, install a computer and work on the engine.

    so here are my questions
    i plan on putting my current desktop pc in my car.
    i have this power inverter 300 watt continuous 600 peak should i use it for powering the pc or should i find somthing else?

    i also have heard that these inverters cause distortion to audio is there away around that like puting the inverter up by the battery?


    how would i go about hooking up the audio from the pc to my car audio?


    that is about all i can think of right now for questions

    thanks in advance

    ok so ive done a lot more reading and looking and i found that my computer is using a 200watt power unit so this lets me use my 300watt continuous 600 watt peak inverter safely...


    i still havent found a good place to put the inverter out of my three locations, under the hood by the battery, in the dash , or in the trunk.

    i may have my wireing figured out

    battery-->inline fuse-->distributor-->power switch-->inverter-->computer
    i am then going to take the power button on my computer and wire it to a location on my dash.
