Planning my first CarPC in my 2006 Altima SER
Hey, here's what I have planned out so far for the hardware of my first CarPC. The car is a 2006 Nissan Altima SER with the Stock 6-speaker Bose system. I am going to be replacing my JVC KD NX-5000 DVD Single DIN head unit with the Carputer. The stock Bose stereo consists of an Amp in trunk, w/6 speakers; 2 Component 5.25" up front with 2 5.25" in the rear doors, and 2 6x9's used for bass only in the rear deck, I have the adapter for the wiring harness that converts it to 2 RCA pair's for input from the head unit. Which will make it easy to connect to the Carputer.
The current part list that I have made up is as follows: (Please note all recommendations/comments are appreciated!)

I also put together a crappy basic wiring diagram for myself to use:
That's everything, as soon as I start ordering parts and building it, I'll put up a worklog... can't wait to get this project started. If anyone has any helpful hints, tips or tricks, please share!
Minus that, I've been searching and reading up on the forums to learn everything I can before I get waist deep into the project. :pop:
