Yea, I'm pretty much a dub guy. So in to dubs that I want to change my name to Jay Dubs
I've only noticed couple of dubs around. One of the mods/admins has a vr and someone with a MKV. I'm sure there's more but I don't really see anyone.
Also, keep me posted on your progress. I think I will go with Carnetix 2140 for this sx270n.
Bueller ... Anyone?
Should be the same red wire.
I just picked up an SX270 with a P4 2.8GHz HT, 1GB RAM, 40GB HDD, Power Cable, DVD-ROM all that good stuff for $200 shipped. I dont know if thats a good price or not but it looked pretty good. Im about to order a P2140 to power this beast of a computer, any one have any other suggestions before I order this? How well will this work with the 2.8GHz HT processor compared to the other CPUs this can come with. Thanks a lot in advance.
The longest I had it running was this past weekend for about 4-5 hours and everything was fine.
BTW, that's a good price and for the most part that's what they go for.
One last question, I was just thinking about this... I need a lot of the options this comes with to work with out a hitch such as: no "pop" through speakers when booting, then I want it to go into standby when ignition goes off and turn the PC on when I unlock my doors. I have read that some people have issues with these options how have they worked for you? Thanks again!
With the power connected, I've tried just jumping the two sides of this box with a screwdriver to see if this made the connection, but it did not (someone posted that this is the way to find the connections -- I have no idea). This seems to be the only place to connect anything to. So, what am I missing???
Please help -- this is driving me out of my mind!
first you guys should be going to the carnetix forum and post there . Mike will help you out right away.
He will answer your question and fast.
Carnetix p2140 Installation Question
Red - Primary Output 1&2 (they both are the main power source ( computer ))
Brown* - Secondary Output ( like screen,usb hub,XM,...any other thing you want to power )
some computer ( like 18,24volt ) use 2 power wires to connect to the computers.
12 V use one.
that is why there are 2 power wire.
Get it you will be happy with. Just upgrade the flash on it. when you get it.
2. no problem with standby when ignition goes off. It is set up to do that.As one of the options.
3. turn the PC on when I unlock my doors- That can be done. it is a little harder to do.
a. you have to hook the Blue wire on the input side to a + side of the door lock. and set the input time to be set to make the P2140 to come on.
b.if you dome light come on it can be hook to it.
c. you can hook Blue wire to after market extra accessory wire.
d.if you can start the car remotely it will work too
Why not just let the P2140 take you computer out of standby when you start the car?
Mine goes in to Hibernate mode. When I start the car . it take 5 -7 sec to be up . Time it take me to put on my seat belt. And that is a boot.
With standby it should only take 2-4 sec to be up and ready to run. My screens take longer than that to start up and get warmed up to run.
it is better to try it with a wire instead of a screwdriver. jump it with a wire it will turn on/off.
does not mater with side of the turn on button you put the G & W wire to. those two wire act as a relay and connects the power on button for what ever time you set the P2140 to hold it. If you had it to long the computer will come om and back off.
ok, please check Mike out on the carnetix forum. You will get great support from Mike.
And if you have any more Question just ask.
I own a car audio shop. And I have install at least 25 of them in the past 6 months.
Not including the 4 installed in my Demo SUV and 1 in all 4 of my cars.
