    Redoing the entire install, PC and system!

    So, after about a year with the old system, I have decided that I wanted to get back into competing in USACi Sound Quality events and see just how far I can make it with the computer in the car as my only source unit. So here is a list of what the computer will be:

    Mini-ITX MII12000
    Xenarc 8" VGA Touch
    512MB ram
    200 GB Seagate Barracuda HD
    Panasonic Slim slot dvd/cd-rw
    EDIT: SoundBlaster Audigy 2 NX Notebook sound card (for the optic ins and outs)
    EDIT: M1-ATX power supply

    For the stereo:

    Focal K2P seperates (will probably be switching to Berylliums once they come out after CES)
    2 JL 12w6v2s
    Arc Audio 4150 (4-channel) and 2500 (2-channel)
    Alpine PXA-H701 & RUX-C701 (basically, a processor and display to go with that processor) - read - THIS IS NOT A HEAD UNIT! THERE IS NO HEAD UNIT IN THIS CAR!



    So I will be posting pics as we get stuff done. Here is what we got done this weekend. With finals being this past friday and going through wednesday we were a little distracted. Having finals looming over your head tends to do that...lol

    Looking sweet, but is that an optimum enclosure for 2 subs? I mean, there are no straight walls...

    as long as the volume is correct it should be a problem.

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    to an extent that is a true statement......do the words "standing waves" mean anything to anyone?
