    Thanks. I used to use his skin but there's not a Media Engine version. There's one for Media Car but I ME has more features. Feb has a skin for FP but it's not for 800x600 "stretched"

    Yes I did have a monsoon system. I got rid of the HU and Monsoon "amp" (it's really just a crossover). I replaced them with a 4 channel amp. The speakers are aftermarket components as well.

    Here's a pic of the carputer, amp, and soldered leads fo the speaker leads on the monsoon harness.
