    Xenarc USB Power

    Ok, now it is just about time to start putting together. For powering the Xenarc, I am going to fabricate a USB power cable, to run from the Opus (located in the back) to the front.

    For the USB power cable, I am going to do the following:
    • Take USB cables from old USB LAN adapters
    • Splice cables together to get correct length
    • Create a PCB or similar to connect power cable to custom Power USB port
    • Connect custom USB power port to Opus 12v & ground

    Seems like it will work just fine. Anyone got any inputs?

    Yea, the snap onto your console or vents. They are awesome if you don't want to build/mod your dash. I will definately post some pics.

    Where are you planning on mounting your hardware?? I'm also really interesting in seeing how this clip actually mounts. I have a Trailblazer and I thought about doing something similar, but I'm really trying to keep it prestine.

    Also, how are getting sound into the sound system?? Do you have the factory sound system?
