1) presumeably the dynaudio speakers and how they were mounted.
2) the speakers and how they;re mounted/setup will have the greatest effect on the quality of audio you experience.
For ease of setup I'd recomend a Class D mono amp. Somthing that puts out a genuine 500 watts RMS into a 1ohm load. Could go upto a 1000 wrms amp if you realy want.
No you don't, run down one side the go across to the other side at the end. However I wouldn't be worried about speaker and power wire being close together, Is you're going to get any cable induce...
www.the12volt.com has power wire charts.
8 guage would be sufficient for that amp, so a single 4 guage for amp + car puter should be fine.
- you can't go direct fom pc to speakers, you need an amp in between.
- you can choose to have it play though the front stero speakers, be distributed to all speakers, or be surround processed to...
Yes - wire in parallel and you'll be fine.
Scary - this may be the start of a common issue/fault.
Someone else I know has had issues with the CD mechanism on this new generation of alpine headunits. Send it back for repair/replacement.
That would be a 6 channel amp.
1) Under seat is fine as long as you an a min of 1 inch clearance on all sides.
2) Either way you have to hook it up the the battery. I'd recomend the normal way: +'ve to battery, -'ve to chassis.
all depends on what you want it to do, and how you want it to work.
Also it's 480x272 res so less that half that of a VGA screen.
Normally it's a serail type data port for upgrading firmware or makign advanced adjustments.
I was going to suggest that as well - they're also handy amps to have lying around.
Should definetly be possible.
Connect them, to your headunti via it's AUX input (if it has one), or via a AUX input adapter if it has CD changer functions.
Or if you realy want to test it uninstall the carpc and rest it on the front seat, use some suitably large jumper cables and go direct from the battery to your power supply.
Please ground it to an unpainted part of the chassis, not a dash support beam.
I'd try it of a car battery first - at least then you can measure the amperage.
A car pc with multi video out would do the job.
What price are these selling for?
No they;re not - see my post above.
It will sound a bit *** though.
Consideering your install (last 2 channels being used with a flip down screen), playing a 7.1 source through such an install will sound worse than a proper 5.1...
First of all I would addrsss the issue of why you want 7.1?
99.5% of movies are still mixed in 5.1 or lower. Most 7.1 mixes you see on DVDs are matrixed mixes , i.e. the addition 2 channels are...
