    The metal pieces are brackets that hold the subwoofer/computer box to the car. It keeps the box from moving while I am driving.

    mp3stang02 ,

    Very clean setup! Some questions:

    1. Where did you get your display from and what type is it?
    2. What software are you running for mp3 playback?
    3. Did you hard wire your power inverter? I notice that you don't have it plugged into the cigarette lighter.


    Thanks for the info. Again, nice setup. Like how the equalizer is installed with the display.

    At www.eio.com. It is a 40X2 character LCD but I forgot the brand & model.


    2. What software are you running for mp3 playback?

    Winamp 2.X with IR and LCD plugins.


    3. Did you hard wire your power inverter? I notice that you don't have it plugged into the cigarette lighter.

    Yes, it is hardwired.
