    2000 GTi CarPC and Sound Quality system

    Aighty - I know I started a thread about this a while back...but I have since moved all of the pictures and rather than going back through and relinking to the pics I figured I would just start a new thread....make it a lot easier on me and on everyone looking for pics...

    So here's the specs:

    Computer:
    Mini-ITX SPII12000
    M1-ATX power supply
    Sound Blaster Audigy PCMCIA with optical out
    200 GB Seagate Baracuda drive
    512MB memory
    8" Xenarc VGA Touch screen

    Stereo:
    Tweeters: Focal Beryllium
    Midrange: Focal Beryllium 6.5" in newly built kicks
    Sub: Focal K2P 16"
    Amps: STEG K4|01 and K2|02
    Processor: Alpine PXA-H701 and RUX-C701 (display)

    Too see pics go to this page:

    enjoy!

    I have been looking at the Alpine PXA-H701 with a sound card that will allows digital out (probably the Audigy PCMCIA). I want to keep things digital as much as possible until just before it goes into the amp.

    Looking at the manual for the Alpine unit it shows three sets of digital inputs. Creative lists the Audigy digital out as 'SPDIF', while alpine just says 'Fiber Optic Cable'. I am assuming that that they are the same and you went directly from you sound card into the digital 'headunit' input on the proccessor.

    Is this right?

    Thanks,

    EDIT: I just answered my own question. You link was broken, but then I noticed the CarDomain link in you signature. Very nice competition system. Very well done, also. I could see the optical cable in your pics. Thank You for taking so many.

    you will have to get a 1/8" phono to tos-link adapter.

    I got mine at radio shack for about $2.

    I just realized I didn't update this with new kick pictures...instead I started a new thread for it....stupid me....

    new kicks:

    http://www.mj-garage.com/cpg/thumbnails.php?album=64

    we are soon to start rebuilding the amp rack for the new focal amplifiers and possibly the sub enclosure to try and get a bit more volume out of it...I'll try and remember to update this thread with those pictures.

    I've also updated the first post in this thread with the current components.

    Today we worked on building enclosures for the Be mids.

    I still think I'm high off of fumes...lol

    here's a link to where the pics for the enclosures starts: http://www.mj-garage.com/cpg/thumbna...lbum=64&page=2

    Since we have no room in the car, we had to build out side of the car. Should have some more pics of the drivers side tomorrow after work.

    Mmmm..Red....you have a very interesting W cone driver over there!!! Not in the catalogue... How do you find the Steg K2? vs Qmos? Other brands? I am going to use 2 K2.01 for my 100kp and 165K3 midbass for front stage. Felt that Qmos was more dynamic? Power cable was not properly tapped during my audition so I don't know if that is the reason why. But obviously K2 sounded more open and instruments more distinct from each other.

    I have never heard the Qmos actually.

    Comparing the STEG K series and the Audison LRx that we were running before, the STEGs have loads more head room, are much more linear, and have a more live, impactful sound.

    We are extremely happy with these amps...so much so, that we will be sticking with them this year for the move from Intermediate Consumer to Advanced Pro in USACi and from Street Amature to StreetPro in IASCA.
