'11 Subaru Outback gets a new system
I just finished installing a new system in my '11 Outback.
Just snapped a couple pics before heading into work so I don't have many detailed photos right now.
Intel D510mo ITX motherboard w/2gig and 250gig hdd
M2-ATX power supply
Lilliput EBY701-NP/C/T Touch Screen Monitor with Auto Switching w/ transreflective upgrade
Clarion amp, 4 channel 100watt
The motherboard, power supply, radioshark and amp are all housed in the spot the normal head unit goes. The space behind the front bezel is quite cavernous so there's plenty of room.
The box is about 4x7x7 and is made out of circuit board material with copper on both sides. I used my stained glass skills to solder the case together. It made it very easy to create the box and had an added benefit of making it shielded.
An ITX board doesn't really fit well in a normal DIN space..the connectors (usb, vga, etc) would have stuck out too far no mater which side I put them on. So I de-soldered all the connectors on the back and made pigtails for them. If I were to do it over, I'd count all the pins needed and find a single connector that would have enough. As it is, everythings hidden so oh well.
The display bezel was molded from epoxy, micro fibers and a little graphite to make it black.
A lot of sanding to get it to shape and some custom paint to match the brownish black of the dash. The CD, HDD, USB ports and power/reset switches fit perfectly in the cubby under the display.
I'll be posting more pics in a day or so, but just wanted to get the thread started.
Thanks for lookin,
