    In Illinois, nothing if they're smart. I have had occasion to educate the ignorant with a copy of Public Act 094-0185 which describes what is and is not allowable and who's exceptions include and I quote:

    This Section does not apply to the following equipment
    when installed in a vehicle:
    (1) a vehicle information display;
    (2) a global positioning display;
    (3) a mapping display;
    (4) a visual display used to enhance or supplement the
    driver's view forward, behind, or to the sides of a motor
    vehicle for the purpose of maneuvering the vehicle;
    (5) television-type receiving equipment used
    exclusively for safety or traffic engineering studies; or
    (6) a television receiver, video monitor, television
    or video screen, or any other similar means of visually
    displaying a television broadcast or video signal, if that
    equipment has an interlock device that, when the motor
    vehicle is driven, disables the equipment for all uses
    except as a visual display as described in paragraphs (1)
    through (5) of this subsection (b).



    Of which, I now meet 5 of the 6 exceptions. They also tried to nail me for obstructed view but that too failed when I proved I could see the front right corner of the car without moving.

    It looks big, but honestly its very proportionate with the interior of the car.

    WOW,that sounds good. In Czech Republic is not allowed putting something in your car without homologation mark on it incl. headlights,bumpers,cameras,TV's etc. That's sucks. You have very restricted opportunity customize your car and every two years must every car go to state-controlled testing station for technical inspection and emission control
    And BTW this is my set up

    It's funny you say this. Every time i've been pulled over with this in my car, the police always ask what it's for. When I tell them, they want to hear it and see what's in my bed. I actually had one cop pull me over around 1am and wanted me to turn it up so he could hear how loud it was before he let me go... I feel like the police pull me over just to check out my ride.

    I noticed it looks like you have the screw holes pasted or covered, now is that becuase you're going to cover it with some material or are you going to paint it? I'm just wondering becuase I am covering mine with fiberglass and it's becoming a lot of work, and your design makes me wonder if it's possible just to primer and paint mdf enclosures without covering them?

    Yes, apparently you can paint MDF if the right precautions are taken:
