99 Acura TL carputer project pics
Sup guys!!! n00b here to the forum... You guys got a good thing goin here... Thought i would show off a few pics of the carputer... its always a work in progress but whatever :P
Theres still some things i would like to do with it, but right now this is how it is. Im a network engineer and i had some stuff laying around the house so i decided to build a basic carputer... nothing super fancy, just a Celeron 600 w/ 80Gigs and XP... Gotta keep it running cool. Its in a standard MicroATX chassis, and the carputer has been integrated in to my existing after market sound system. Im running the Kenwood KVT-910DVD with Boston Z6's all around, a JL 10w7, JL 500/1 and 300/4. Screens in the headrests and PS2 also in the trunk.
Right now im running the carputer in to the AUX composite input of the head unit. I want the Xenarc screen but ill be damned if i bolt a screen to my dash, i love the factory look of the car and molding a Xenarc screen in my dash where the NAVI screen would go is too costly to think about right now.
Carputer also is running a USB GPS transceiver, and since im in the business that i am, i do of cource have an 802.11g card with some very nice sniffing software and a big booster omni-directional antenna :)
I was going to run linux, but since the carputer is basically outputing to "TV", i needed XP to make it all readable...
Enjoy and any feedback from you guys is appreciated!!! Im always on Acura-TL.com and acurazine.com so catch me there too!!
