    New CarPC member, question on M2-ATX

    All my stuff is on order now. I'm doing up a VoomPC CarPC with M2-ATX and 7" Lilliput touchscreen in my 1996 3000GT VR4. I'm new to this but ready for the project.

    My question is related to the location of the M2-ATX unit. From what I gather (i work in computers) the M2 doesnt install into the VoomPC case, it hangs outside somewhere. Where should I physically put the M2-ATX unit? Should I have it in an enclosure?

    There is only one other 3000GT install on MP3car (under the show off your car section) , but the LCD was done external, mine will be installed in the double din.

    If anyone knows the good places to hook the M2-ATX up to, please let me know.

    Look forward to this project.

    Ampie Case information and pictures

    And just so you know the "VoomPC" case is also called the "Ampie" case. You might have better luck searching with that term.

    You should search. Ampie Case information and pictures Yes, it MUST be in some type of enclosure.

    Sure, try the ATX connector on your MB and wire coming from your battery

    By seconds, mere seconds. It took me a little longer because I search for both VOOM and M1 and M2, but ya, you won. :P

    hahahaha thanks guys for the help. For some reason I thought the M2 was big...I didnt realize it was small and fit inside the voompc case...

    Now to find out what this "battery" thing is..i hear it supplies something called "electricity"....i think I need that right? (i meant where EXACTLY in a 96 VR4 i could hook it up to)

    Exactly would be run a thick wire to this modern day leyden jar to feed the M2's +12v const connector (RED) and a smallish wire to the ignition wire of your car (varies so look around das interwebs) to the ign connect on the M2 (WHITE), and the M2's ground (BLACK) to the chassis. Voila. Witness the glory of the flowing electron!
