    My 2001 Kia Sportage, (95% done)

    Well first of all I think I did a ****ty job on the LCD unit. The way KIA made this POS is I would need to take off the steering wheel and a number of other sensitive things in order to get to the dash. For the carputer itself I am using a dell CPxJ and it is being powered by my own 12 to 20v upstep regulator. The size is roughly that of 3 people magazines. I then have a numpad to control audio functions without taking my eyes off the road. There are 4 tweeters, 2 in front and two in back, all powered by the head unit. then there are 4 midrange drivers, 2 alpine's and two infinity sm152 midrange drivers. they are being powered by the Boss CX350 amp. then I have a 21 inch subwoofer which pull about 50 watts (producing 123 db), The sub is a Pyle Pro 21250. I've tested it and it produces 107.2 db at freestanding, in the box however it produces 110 db at 1 watt/meter. The amp is a Profile Baja 600, BUT the sub is 8 ohms (the amp runs very cool), I get 20 volts RMS music power, 28 volts peak before clipping.
    The picture






    I will be updating this project weekly, If you like I will post more pictures.
    Here is my ugly self next to the car:

    LOL red sub. You know, it wouldn't be really that hard to hide the wires. I can't say the laptop looks like it will live long that way though. You may want to consider mounting/storing the laptop on it's side (so the hard drive is vertical). Seems you may be a bit rough on the car and I think that may help extend the life of the PC.

    Same here.

    I would definatly try to hide the cables a little bit more and clean it all up a little bit. And make some sort of fixture to hold the laptop. Not nescesarily on its side but firm. A lot of people have there hard drives mounted horizontally under their seats without any problems.

    Also I would try to make the effort in removing that dashboard panel and put some more time in the finish of the display. Will look a lot better!

    Well it is a good thing that you don't see the amp under the seat and the 200+ feet of audio wire, then the ENTIRE electrical system that I replaced.

    I say take off the steering wheel/dash bezel and mold the screen into it. I really think that the screen and the sub are just too big. I would go with an 8" screen at the most and 12s for sub/s. It will look much much cleaner. Definately do a nice mount for the laptop and hide everything really nice and clean.

    May I ask why you have gone with such a big screen and especially that huge *** sub?

    The screen is 8 inches. I wanted the sub because of the efficiency. 107 db at one watt per meter is some damn efficient stuff.

    Why have the mods not banned this guy yet?

    And you should stop arguing with people, just because you don't have a car does not mean you should whine and cry about someone who does. I'm done arguing with you.
