First build 2009 Subaru WRX
Hi I am Curtis and I am building my first Carputer for my 2009 Subaru WRX. I have followed a couple build threads for awhile and have seen many as well. About a year ago I decided to sell my standard Pioneer DVD Double Din. But recently I started to think I want again then it clicked, why not just build my carputer I've always wanted. So that's what brings me here today to Mp3car. Always been a lurker but finally joined up. Lets start with what I am working with..
I have a old HP DV6736NR(specs here)with a broken screen. So my thought is to just gut the screen/trackpad/keyboard and just use that as its own case. For power button I was going to just re-wire a momentary to where ever I mount it to somewhere in my dash.
For Screen I am getting a Mini Touch 700 since it is bright and should just match my Double Din Application smoothly for more of a OEM look.
For Power Supply I was either thinking of using M4-ATX or even just the M3-ATX but I guess there is problem with noise I have to do further research on this.
For Sound my plan is to just hopefully run my current Head Unit to my glove box and run a AUX from my location of Laptop Housing into that so I can just use that to control sound which will have a 900.4 Crunch Amp connected to it and possibly a Monoblock for my Subwoofer. Another idea is I could just run adapters from my Laptop to split into my amps since there are 2 outlets. But my current deck has bluetooth but again I could add that too the laptop as well too.
Keyboard and Mouse I am getting a all in one unit like the Dinovo from Logitech.
I dont think I am missing anything. If so, anyone's help is greatly apprectiated and Thank in Advance
