    2000 Chevy Blazer - the long road ahead - *Pictures*

    ---------------------[ HARDWARE ] -------------------------
    Mobo: ZOTAC IONITX-F-E Intel Atom 330 (1.6GHz, dual-core) NVIDIA ION
    RAM: 4GB ddr2
    HDD: 32gb 2.5" OCZ vertex ex ssd sata [OS] & 500gb WD blue sata hooked up via usb [media]
    CASE: VoomPC2
    WIFI: Atheros mini-pcie card [came with mobo] with roof mounted antenna
    LCD/TS: 8" Xenarc
    8 serial controlled relays [not installed]
    PSU: Opus 120watt

    ------------------------ [ PLANS ] ---------------------------
    * the computer resides in the back of my blazer w/ the amps under a "fake floor"
    * the LCD/TS is going to replace the HU and HVAC controls
    * HU is going to be moved below the dash
    * HVAC controls are now in the glove compartment [a bit of a reach for me but worth it]

    ------------------------- [ AUDIO ] ----------------------------
    * Fake Floor
    * Orion 4004 is in and wired to 2 sets of Memphis 6.5 components [rear doors and front kick panels]
    * JL Slash 1000/1v2 is in and wired
    * JL 13w7

    ----------------------------[ WIRING - ALL DONE ] --------------------------
    computer:
    *FRONT TO REAR
    -VGA [need to reorder, first one went to my projector in my media room]
    -USB
    -AUDIO
    -ACC
    - 2 runs of cat5 for use later as 16 small wires running front to back, possibly for relays?
    * Power 4awg to dist. block then to Opus
    * ground to common ground

    ------------------------[ FABRICATION ] ---------------------
    DASH:
    * cut hole measured, awaiting fiberglass materials
    GLOVE COMPARTMENT:
    * [may need a little cleaning up sometime later]
    CONSOLE:
    * still in planning have not decided all the parts needed in it so its hard to start building
    LOWER CONSOLE [headunit location] :
    * DONE

    went to take a picture for ya and found out leaving your camera in the car isnt always the best thing .. ill see if i can barrow a freinds ... i'm not too sure if the M1 [or M2] will fit in the case if you've got all the goodies in there [as i do]

    That would be great. Im only going to have one 2.5" hd in there (100GB), but I do want the ability to an extra PCI video card in there, because the onboard video isnt quite cutting it with street deck. I emailed Mini box before I bought it and they said for heat issues it would probably work, but would probably be best to mount it upside down next to the hard drives and PCI slot and attach it from the top of the case.

    the amps ... almost all wired again


    carputer in all her glory also waiting for more wire [among other things]

    i still cant decide what to do for power .. any suggestions are welcome ... id love a dsatx .. but its just so much money ... but the features are practically endless .. but form a practical stand point how many features do i really need ... maybe an opus 120?

    well i've spent a great deal of time workin' on the stereo so i figured id write a quick blurp about it, it's a kenwood cda-7897 headunit, an orion 2500D pushing an Orion 15" HCCA sub, an orion 4004 running a pair of memphis 15-MSYNC6 components in kicks up front and a set in the rear doors ... simple but i like this set up, the dash and stock front door speakers are still stock but not used.

    the sub is getting a new enclosure soon, a quarter tube fiberglass box, [4 boxes so far just cant find a happy medium between size and sound ]

    just playin in photoshop ... thought this would be cool to put a dock in for my ipod, to charge, or for friends ipods to get music off/listen to if for some reason i dont have it on my carputer ... might make it so i dont HAVE to have the pc on use it ... might also splice the lineout into my head unit ... ill have to find some pin outs .. but this is a while away .. gotta finish up the dash first ...

    before


    photoshoped after
