    A few questions: mostly sound

    Hi everyone,
    Been lurking around the boards for a while but I'm starting to build my carputer.
    The first step in building my carputer is getting a headunit (I think...) to put out enough power from the computer to the speakers. Most likely going to go with the Alpine 9815. Or can someone suggest me a better way (sound quality wise\cost) I don't want to run it from just an amp because you can't tune the sound as well and worried about the sound card not pushing enough power to the amp.
    <--- becoming audiophile

    I will probably flush mount the LCD screen in a 2 DIN space or just fabricate the plate for it. Have the headunit in the lower panel. But this leaves no room for access to the DVD rom drive. Can slot load DVD drives eject vertically? Space is a big problem to me, as I drive a small car. I'm really hoping to fit the computer behind the screen. Below is a picture to see what I'm working with. Not a great picture, I'll take another one tomorrow. BTW the panel behind the shift knob slides out to 2 cup holders. I still want to be able to use them. I can buy or fabricate a panel below the current headunit, above the cupholder to hold the new headunit.



    Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
    -Joey

    why did you bump your thread? You don't have any questions outlined that I could see that you wanted response to. We are not going to guess what you want us to tell you.

    For the questions you did ask, slot loading dvd players should work fine vertically.

    Just telling us about your plans and asking for feedback isn't enough. Ask questions or don't expect responses.

    Oh, and by the way...If I have had no problems finding space for every accessory my mind can dream up in my MR2, I don't think physical space will be a problem in your RSX with more than 2x the interior room. And a trunk.
    MP3 MR2 (click here for details)
    Hardware: EPIA M10000, 512Meg Ram, 5.6"TFT, Opus 150watt DC-DC PSU
    Software: Windows 2000, Media Engine 2.0

    what do you mean you can tune it with just amps??
    Mixer Holmes!!!
    there are tons of them online
    Winamp has one built in and if that isnt good enought you can get a plugin to expand it into a (I think) 30 or 32 band equ
    In all honesty you can get a better control over the sound without a head unit just as long as you have a gravy sound card up in that mug. don some research look at the freq and find on that fits your style and taste.

    its your system... follow your ears

    Never expected to be flamed in the newbie forum..
    "Or can someone suggest me a better way (sound quality wise\cost)," Subject: A few questions: mostly sound <--- main points of post.

    I just wanted to keep everything clean and smooth looking. I've seen even show cars that have fiberglassed components that look completely out of place. I think I found a suitable place installing a short shifter today.
    I appreciate the responses, thanks.
