2001 ford Puma UK install
ok guys my first install so ill tell u what i have done
my car is a Puma made by ford , its the 2001 model so nearly the last of its kind be4 they stooped making them .
only other modifications i have done to the car is installed a piper cross induction kit , and installed the interior out of a ford racing Puma.
OK more about the system,
install spec of the following
Dell optiplex pure 12v Mini-Itx system
40gb laptop HD
sound blaster audio NX external sound card
USB external Wireless G card , connected to a Dlink external exstention adapter
theloudest.com 2000w or 3000w ( cant remember ) 4channel amplifier
theloudest.com 6x9 1000w rear speakers
infinity front speakers 250w with preamps
lilliput indash screen ( pile of rubbish i might add)
Windows XP sp2
roadrunner front end with simplistique skin
wifihopper ( for internet)
wiring spec of the following
12v thick wire running from the battery to a 15amp fuse box directly to a 15amp switch , which in turns runs to the modified power cable of the dell optiplex , the optiplex has a built in power modulator and runs on 12v . The power modulator controls the voltage and also does another cool thing . basically when the power is cut and when it resumes it automatically turns on the PC . so this enabled me to easily wire up a switch :D
also u may have noticed the other switch , this just turns the amp on and off , to stop the 'popping noise' on boot up !
in the boot i used a old subwoofer enclosure and installed the box in thr , i dont use my boot for anything so this made it quite good to use .
my car has a din and a 3/4 socket , so i cant use a double din , so i had to use a single din adapter to fit the screen
ok i think thats enough of my specification , heres pictures of my first install.
1.)install a phone control software , cant be bothered atm because i have no microphone
2.) install another switch next to the other 2 , to either turn on the Mic or maybe a usb port or something.
3.) eventually fiberglass a proper screen in !
4.) possibly a dedicated 3g internet connection for tracking . not sure yet ! , seems my nokia n70 dosnt have a serial blue tooth profile
5.) wait till navigaotor 6 finally releases a window resize fix , so i can actually install that !
thanx yal , would like some feedback
