Ok so here are the pictures I have for now. I'll add more of the back of the screen or inside the computer next time i have them apart.
Bam. The black mounting bezel was hell to make, and my basement is basically littered with pieces of lexan in that shape that I wasn't happy with.
Centrafuse in action.
The kX driver DSP routing table. Very basic, very simple. Audio comes in, do some EQing, send it through a 24db/octave crossover that splits the signal at 2.5kHz, and then straight to the outputs. Incredibly powerful and flexible.
Proof of the complete stock look. Little does anyone know what monsters lie in those doors....
My trunk space, looks normal enough.
Carpet cover off. Note the wooden supports where the foam pieces should be. Sorry for the blur...
The computer itself. Nothing pretty, but it doesn't need to be. Weatherstripping on all sides to give it some shock resistance. There is enough tension from the wires and the space I built it into that it's not going anywhere, but it has some give, and hasn't crashed on me once yet. Fitting the hard drive, power supply, and the sound card in there was an absolute feat. Next time I have it out I will definetely take pictures.
Computer feeding right into my 4 channel amp.
The amp in action. The whole setup bumps hard.
Things to do:
1. Screen setup is still buggy. I was originally powering it straight from the battery, and it couldnt stay on during ignition. Added a push button switch to turn it off and on as I want, but it still gets crazy after the car is on. The whole idea is to turn the computer on as I'm walking to the car, then get in and turn the car on.
Just did some power calculations, and the M1-ATX should definetely be able to power the screen in addition to the computer. Definetely going to change that soon.
2. I have a USB hub up by the center console, but its hidden under everything because I don't really need it a lot yet. Eventually, the plan is to have 2 stacked USB ports in the cigarette lighter space. The ports are on their way from a company now, so I just need to wire them up and fabricate something nice looking for them.
3. Boot time. Always trying to cut it. I'm thinking about booting to Centrafuse as a shell, but this has its down sides.
Any ideas you guys have?
