After quite a few incarnations of a mobile system this is what I have now. The first 4 or 5 times the system was incredibly ugly and in the way (but functional). I guess now I kinda dig the 'stealth' look. My screen is in-dash (although Sony could have picked a better color for their hardware other than silver). The PC is in the glovebox. When the glovebox is closed, there's no way to see the computer anywhere in the car. I wish I still had some pics I could find of my system from 4 years ago. It stuck out in my car like a sore thumb.
- Sony XAV-7W Head Unit
- Sony XM-2150GSX Amp
- Sony XS-L1036 10" Subs (X2)
- Pioneer TS-A1661 6.5" 3-Ways (X4)
- Blaupunkt DVD-ME1
- EPIA 800MHz CPU
- 256MB SDRAM
- 40GB HDD
- X10 MouseRemote
Here are some pics of my current system:
Looking good...now all you need is a plexi cover for the glove box with a little cold cathode in there...:D
Acutally, I thought about that. I was going to put plexi over the top and cut out a hole in the back of the glove box for an 80mm lighted case fan. I have 2 of them lying around from my last setup.
OK....is it just something messed up on my laptop or did all my pics I posted in this thread disappear? I'll post some smaller ones. Otherwise you can see all the pics at the url listed in my signature.
UPDATED - Posted new pics from a different server
I see red X's on this page.
Nice amp/sub box (on cardomain.com)
I liked it a little better when the enclosure held my old subs and computer with the lighted fans and plexi top, but I didn't really have a decent place to put my amp and I found that when I turned the volume up the subs would make the HDD skip.
where do you have your blaupunkt dvd-me1? Mine hangs along the top of the trunk, Im looking for a place to put it inside the cabin. And nice setup, definately add some cold cathodes in there.
The Blaupunkt unit is just sitting on the floor behind and kinda under the passenger seat and facing the driver's side. It's out of the way enough to not be seen unless your looking for it and close enough so I can reach it while I'm driving. It's not the best place to have it, but the Blaupunkt is only a temporary thing. I'll be getting rid of it as soon as I can find a notebook DVD drive that I like.
Got some new parts today:
New power supply
New DVD Drive (replacement for iMac)
Hopefully I'll have some time this weekend to get everything installed.
What kind of remote is that? It is cool looking.
