    There ok, I would rate there sound quality at 75-80 out of 100
    and thats with a low end amp, cheap head unit

    In the right box there really good, but a smaller speaker like a 10in may sound louder
    at the same power, because it takes less power to move, and more of the sound is
    in the normal hearing range, I get more vibration than sound sometimes with the
    speakers I have

    I had to remove some of the foam and sound damping from behind the back seat
    it was soaking up a lot of sound

    Even with all the mods to get the sound out of the trunk, the trunk seams to steal
    about 30% to 40% or more, of your sound -- same setup in a VAN was almost
    twice as loud

    Also I have added a crap load of undercoating and rubber paint to keep the sound in the
    car, so its not very loud outside the car, inside its a different story

    Next time I might go with a 10in and a 12in in place of two 12in

    I just used MS Paint, and NotePad to edit the default skin, that
    skin works fine in Mediacar, But has problems in RoadRunner

    Here is my Windows XP Boot screen


    Here is the Logo


    And another


    As far as editing the skins I think the info is in the forums and
    Its been to long and I have no idea how to edit the other files
    that go with the skin any more, you will have to do some
    searching

    Good luck

    Update - New Parts!!!!

    I just got me an m4-atx, and a 10in touch screen from a cop car,
    and I am trying to get it all installed this week end, I also got a
    another computer, the motherboard is a Asus A7N266-VM, cpu is a
    Athlon XP Thoroughbred 1800+ (51.0 W) - just hope its not overkill
    - but its what I had on hand

    I was going to replace the head unit and just use the computer, and
    the motherboard supports 6 channel sound, and it works well, but I need
    another amp, I have one hooked to my subs, and an old 2 channel
    pioneer 100w just laying around, but I would need 3 amps, one for subs,
    one for the front, and one for the back, I might try it later, but I am
    broke now

    On a side note, I got a "Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP Deluxe" working with
    Radiator and Road Runner/Ride Runner, took for ever to get it working, It
    would not let me change presets, then I found that you have to disable
    the scrolling text in Radiator
    , the bt848/878 plugin works just
    fine on it, I also had a "Leadtek WinFast TV2000 XP Expert" but it uses a
    different chip and wont work

    Oh and that Media Car skin I modified works just fine now, I will post it
    later,

    The last time I did this, I remember it only taking 2 to 3 days, I started
    Friday removing things, spent Saturday getting parts and installing
    software on the computer, today I looked for more parts, finished making
    the parts for my LCD mount, and finished the box for the M4-ATX

    I used a old ATX power supply case, the standoffs would not fit the
    M4-ATX so I removed them, drilled holes and used bolts and nuts, I
    used 3 nuts on each bolt to hold it up of the case bottom, I used a
    nibber to cut out the holes I needed, the fan is hooked up to J3,
    J3 is listed as "(J3) Fan Header" and I cant find any more info on it,
    so I am going to try using with the fan that was in the case.

    I took the computer out to the car and hooked the power up,
    like this
    I just did this as a test, and it works fine

    I dont want to leave it this way, because I would like to use the
    computer when the radio is not on, and plan on using a switch in my dash,
    like over in this post M2-atx Override Switch I made up my own setup with a
    relay so my LCD would only get power when the computer is on, here is
    what I am thinking

    Oh yea, here is my computer

    Did some more today, ran the wires in the dash and put a switch in the
    ashtray like this

    and this is what it looks like installed


    Simple and easy

    I still need to run wires for the LCD, and USB hub and install the LCD
    mount, I am going to make something like this,Laptop Mount and this
    Building a Laptop Mount and In-car Laptop Mount but just for my LCD,

    I hope to have it near finished tomorrow
