    Great Setup. Do you have any power problems. Are you running inverter directly off the battery or thru a cigarette lighter.

    im running 10ga from my battery (with 20amp inline fuse) to a relay to the inverter.. Relay it turned on by my headunit and turns on my inverter, and screen. I wouldnt suggest running the inverter thru a cig lighter, it looks bad, and some cig lighters are fused at 15amps, and this thing will take 30amps 12vdc at full swing.

    Most cigarette lighters are only rated for ~10amp, much more, and they're liable to start melting. Also, its not uncommon for them to be unfused.

    Hey,
    Just wondering how you wired the audio to go through that pioneer cd player? I know my alpine doesn't have any sort of inputs that i know of and my old pioneer didn't either. Just wondering bc I'm thinking of running a setup like yours and figuring out how Im going to do everything.
    Thanks
    -Andrew

    for pioneer you can buy optional cd-rb10 unit ($15) for aux in.. not sure about alpine, but you can go RF mod if you have to.
