Trickle of Money makes for a slow build
So I dont have tons of extra money so my system build has been very slow. And repurchasing items is definately a no no for me. So I have to build off of what I have. I want to add DVD to the car but I want more functionality than what the current DVD head units have, so it seems that a pc is the way to go. Here is a list of my current equipment and a list of plans. Let me know what you guys thing and maybe any suggestions or changes you can think of.
Clarion Head Unit
-Sirius Satellite control
I have the iPod controller and the 6 disc changer. The head unit will control a 6 disc DVD changer and also controller the 5.1 controller if I decide to go that way. The headunit is a single din and I have a double din size opening. So to easily add DVD I plan on getting the DVD Changer but not the 5.1 controller yet. Than a touchscreen VGA screen. I have been looking and found a few that I have to concider. So at that point I wouldnt run anything in the VGA just plug the DVD changer into the screen and maybe add a backup camera. Also, the iPod that I have is the video and I have an extra dock laying around. I would plug the dock into the audio aux in on the headunit and the video to the 2nd comp video in on the screen. So I have DVD and ability to play the videos from the iPod. Also I have expandability. So cost to me with the screen and the changer would be about 500 or so dollars. Does this seem like a viable way to go instead of jumping to the PC right away?
I guess I look as the PC as an accent to stereo system instead of the other way around. Of course the PC would add additional finctionality but at a cost as I wouldnt want to skimp on that at all.
Ok so any thoughts? Am I just simply crazy? Thanks for any replies.
