    VW Polo 2 Coupe ( too much High-Tech )

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if the things i want to install into my car can
    get enough energie from my batterie.

    Current - Setup :

    Car : VW Polo 3 - 50 PS

    :: JVC - Radio and 12 x CD-Changer (front)
    serves 2 x MacAudio 2 Way System (70W - each)

    :: 2 Amps (rear)
    --> Condor[240W] serves 2 x JBL( 3 way system - 100W each)
    --> Rockford[350W] serves 1 x Pioneer SubWoofer ( 500 W )

    All is powered by one default VW-Batterie.

    Now my customed Setup:

    I just bought the following Hardware in the net :

    :: VIA EPIA M9000
    :: 256 MB USB-Stick
    :: IR-RECIEVER (COM1+2)
    :: LG.Philips.LCD ( i think its 11" )
    :: D-Link USB-WLAN Stick (11Mb/s)

    What i am going to buy soon..

    :: DDR-RAM :-)
    :: 160 GB USB 2.0 HDD
    :: GPS-MOUSE (USB)
    :: Card-Reader (for access-control)
    :: DVD-R/CD-RW-Burner (with DVD-RAM support)

    and .. a power supply ..

    Now my question : I would like to have a easy to handle
    nice and energy-saving solution for my in-car-pc power
    supply.

    Who knows a cheap solution or who has some tips
    like installing a second batterie or something like that.
    I am a software-child ... hardware is not my best part in
    the IT-branche ...

    Thanks a lot and bye

    It will be fine. I run more than that with an Opus 150.

    Of course the USB-Stick it is fast and shhock-protected as hell .. *g*

    The HD is for take away ... Its takes so long if you just want to have 6 or seven GB of Media in your car and the wlan connection until y car is bout 5Mb/s and that is much too slow ..
    In the german Ebay .. this 160 GB drive is about100 which sounds greatto me ..

    What is this Opus thingyou were talkin about and how much is it .. i have never heard of somethng like that .. Do i need a 12V / 230 V converter for it .. ?

    I have an EPIA 800, I think it's close to your motherboard. You'll have to tell my how you get an OS onto a USB drive, I've actually never attempted it, couldn't figure out how it's supposed to work.

    well you've mentioned hardware is not your best but just to let you know a lot of members use dc-dc psu for clean and efficient power. i myself had built my dc-dc psu based on sproggy/mastero's 3.5 design. i got a second battery and i can have my carputer setup running without the engine running for hours.

    Hi ..

    mmh .. that sounds good.. how much is such a power supply
    in the cheapest case for me ..?

    I only saw power supplies that are more expensive than my display and my ITX-Mainboard together...

    Cu and thx
