The sound card will send the signal to the amplifier(s) and the amplifier(s) will feed the speakers. Generally you'll have an 1/8" stereo jack on the sound card so you'll need a 1/8" to RCA Y connector to feed the signal to the amp(s)Without an HU, is there a way to get the sound into the speakers? I know I need an amp, but seeing as I only saw 2-3 amps, I don't know if the wiring for speakers goes into that or to the sound card inside the PC.
You should be able to mount it there without too much trouble use fiberglass and then bondo just to smooth it out.Will a 7 inch Lilliput touchscreen fit (with some bondo'ing I guess) in the double DIN slot?
Windchill will not affect inanimate objects. You'll notice that with a -30 windchill your thermometer doesn't change and radiator doesn't freeze up. It only affects living things.Also, I live in Montreal, Quebec....In Canada. the weather in winter can sometimes get pretty chilly (The windchill doesnt affect the temperature inside the car, right?). Without windchill it can get to -30 Celsius or so. Will that be a problem?
Can someone put up a list of what I'd need? I have my own ideas, but I'd like to hear what other people suggest and maybe a diagram or two to help me out to figure out where all the electrical stuff has to go in order to make everything work
- 7" LCD Touch screen
- Epia ITX Motherboard (If I were going to do it again, I'd use the M10000)
- Power Supply of some sort (I'm using an ATX and a power inverter)
- Hard Drive
- DVD Drive
- Memory (if You're going to use Windows XP get at least 512MB)
- Keyboard and possibly a mouse (for those things you just can't do with a touchscreen)
- Amplifier (your choice but I'd go with Orion if it were my vehicle)
- Misc. cables to connect it all together
If your back seat is like my wife's '98 Jetta and folds down, you might consider mounting the motherboard and hard drive under there otherwise you'll probably have to mount it in the trunk. You'll notice that the Case to house the components in conspicuously absent. I wouldn't buy one, I'd build my own for it. The list above is a very basic list to get the machine up and running. You'll probably want extras like GPS navigation. I also made no mention of software since I think that's a personal choice also.
