    The Land Yacht - not so kludge Sprinter install Rev3

    Pre-Planning stages.

    To take the existing setup (Monstrosity #2) and consolidate down using a server case I managed to get my hands on. So. Step1, Pics & Measurements.

    The dimensions of the server case are

    Depth: 21"
    Width: 16.5"
    Height: 26"

    Here are some pics.

    Pics, measurements, & diagrams of the inside of The Yacht for pre-planning forthcoming

    OK. Time for more information. Here is a rough sketch of the interior of the van, AS IT IS NOW.

    On to more stuff.

    The inverter, which will hopefully be mounted inside the above case is 9.5" long x 8" wide x 3.75" high.

    There are also various power strips that will live inside the case, and a video splitter box.

    For outside the case (possible ideas are false floor, etc), I'll need to mount 2 amps and a "Air Conditioner Control Board" (basically a very simple circuit board that controls the rear-top mounted air conditioner).

    Right NOW, ALLLLLLLL of these things, including the computer, are mounted inside Monstrosity.

    Amp1 (subamp) is 12" x 7.25" x 2.5"
    Amp2 (mainamp) is 10.5 x 11.5 x 2"
    Forgot to measure the "AC Control Board". Will get that later.

    And a rough sketch of the new layout with the new Server Case in the van.
    The Server Case will probably sit on some sort of pedestal or false floor, about 5" high.

    And the concept for the false floor and the stuff that will live under it...

    My setup is rather more sizeable than the average setup.

    Looks like he's packing everything including audio amplifiers into the box. That'll be sweet when it's done.

    That's a nice looking server case as well.
    Failure is not an option....



    It's installed by default on every version of Windows.

    This is in a Dodge Sprinter van that's a taxicab. Space certainly isn't an issue for this case.
    You also haven't seen the specs for this man's CabPC...
    This freak of nature has an Athlon64 system with 2.2terabytes of storage for videos, mp3s, movies and whatever else he's got in there. There are also four screens, one of which is a touchscreen for passengers to select videos.

    Space is an issue with the current Monstrosity. That's why the swap.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
