started putting together all the components, went to Frys and got all the missing parts
now let the assembly begin
started and just to install windows i put it in an old case, untill i get all parts ready
and some more assebaly
and finaly windows installation yay
finished putting the dvd berner into the glove box
finished testing, and installed the mobo into the radio cage behind the screen, its a tight fit, but it works just fine
i got my psu yesterday, but i forgot to get a p4 to p4 connector, and a 20 to 24 pin cable, so ill have to wait till they come to be able to finish.
i did finish the audio though, i followed the instructions to connect the monsoon, though i dont know if i need a ground loop isolator, with the laptop hooked up i didnt have a problem, though with the psu, it might be differant.
ill have to see when i get the 2 missing part to continue.
for those of you who have the monsoon and are thinking of conneting a car pc to it dispite some of the things i have read the sound is fairly good, although it could be louder, but its loud enough. i made my bod with 6 inputs, for a 5.1 system, but i disconnected the center channel, well because it was causing interfearance with the front channels, making them quieter. so im just useing the 4 inputs for now, and the all connect together, with a 5v voltage regualtor on the neg side of the left channel, its bleeding though to the right channel too, but only becase of the damn spliter, and the common ground in the 1/8 connectors. i hope ill be able to get some good grounds, and wont have any interfearance when the computer is on.
i was able to get one of the parts today, and did most of the instalation, id finish it, but id have to take it apart to install the last missing part, a 20 to 24 pin wire.
anyways here are some pics of the progress
the dash 1/2 taken apart, so i can run wires, and connect power = )
where im sticking the USB wireless card
everything but the glove box is install, so i can install critical part tomarrow, and finish up in 10 min = )
ah yes, the final day, everything is put together and running. there are still some glicthes, but will work them out over time.
i hope you guys like it !!
tell me what you think !!!!!!
