Looking good. A radio shack ground loop isolator helped my noise.
I finally got around to doing it, it's still a W.I.P., but who's isn't? lol
Intel D945GCLF2 Atom 330 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU
2GB of RAM
16GB Solid State Disk for Windows (Running TinyXP 09 w/ MinLogin)
320GB WD Scorpio Laptop Disk for media and maps (Built in ShockGuard tech)
TrendNET USB Bluetooth dongle
Pinnacle HDTV USB TV Tuner (with FM Radio and DVR functionality)
BU-353 GPS Reciever
LinkSys a/b/g USB WiFi dongle
Dynamix 710 Touchscreen LCD (UltraBright)
Metra Dbl Din Mount Kit
Metra Wire Harness for Symphony Systems
SoundMax Stereo MIC
Morex 5677 Mini-ITX Case
I took the Metra Double DIN Mounting kit and decided to mount the Headrest kit that came with the Dynamix monitor.
I added a USB port as well, but after a test fit, I sadly had to remove it (Just didn't fit in the Audi dash)
I also drilled 2 pilot holes for the SoundMax MIC
Here the MICs are added and flushed up, some bondo, and alil glaze, and some sanding.
Out in the sun to dry after a couple coats of flat black.
Kinda a crappy pic, but she's inside and dry =)
I ended up getting both the 320GB spinning disk and 16gb SSD mounted inside the case, the WiFi adapter and BlueTooth dongle wired inside.
The TV/FM Tuner sits external as it doesn't work with CentraFuse so I use the Tuners remote to launch, control and close it's own TV / DVR application
Ready to install
The screen doesn't sit as far into the dash as I would like it, stock was about an inch back.
I'm still working on the CentraFuse skin I made for my A6, but most of it is done
And the baby she sits in
I still have to mount the PC under the dash and put the dash back in, I'm debating the FusionBrain so I can use the Steering wheel controls. But so far I love it!
Can any one recommend a good noise filter? I have the BOSE sound system in my car, and the amps are picking up horrible engine noise and alil from the PC
I was looking at these from Crutchfield
In-Line Power Ground Loop Isolator
In-Line RCA Ground Loop Isolator.
I was debating, should I get the Power Conditioner, or the RCA one? or get both?
If I get the RCA one, I'll have to buy 2 as I have 4 sets of RCAs (fronts and rears) hooked up to my factor sound system.
Opinions? Would both the power and RCA isolators be over kill? will I get back performance from one over the other?
