I fitted my carpc today.

Its the first time ive ever done a boot install, so it wasnt anything majorly fancy, but im pleased with the results.

I already had the JL sub and box, so had to create a new false floor (because the spare wheel cover had sagged), then created a new enclosure the same size to house the PC.

What have you fixed your sub in with? I'm looking for some ideas cos mine is hardly evo-proof :)

he he, i used fairly thin mdf to build it all, to try to keep the weight down.

To be honest the whole thing didnt weigh that much (dont have exact figures), and since im not tracking the car i wasnt overy concerned.

It sounds good, i chose to just output the audio to the auxillary input of my headunit, which then feeds it back to the speakers and sub etc.

You can output it straight to a 4 channel amp, and the pc also supports dolby 5.1 if you had the rest of the equipment.

In terms of keeping it in place...... it acts like a wedge lol. Neither of the two boxes can rotate because the other box prevents it. Other than that theyre not fixed down by anything, and they dont move at all, even when pulling away quickly.

When i did have only one sub though aidy, i used a very cheap method of two old belts tied together and wrapped around the box and the rear seat struts. Kept everything in place but didnt look too professional.
:p


ps) a shameless plug, my company actually sells these carpcs, media pcs etc.. if anyones interested :) The pc does everything, sat nav, dvd player, email, internet, wireless, mp3 etc etc.

That's not too far from what I have at the moment, just held in with string :) Belts might be better though cos the string cuts into the lining.

Speak to danny burns on here - I bought a sub and amp that fits into the spare wheel hole. I think his company makes them.

i do have a site, but you wont find alot on it at the moment as im still coding all the backend.

if your interested, pm me and ill give you the details. I'll build any machine to spec basically.

The machine you see there runs winxp and will basically do everything a normal pc will do. Games wont be too wonderful on it however as the machine uses a mini-ITX motherboard with the majority of stuff built in (ie graphics card etc)
