Hi All, I'm making my return after a few months off! The car will be out of action soon to have a new rear bumper as someone bumped into me the other day, however, i'm starting to make plans for the next mod.
Some of you may remember my mid dash screen replacement... didn't really do much and i killed it when trying to take it out to put the power connector back in (bl00dy thing kept falling out). It got stuck so i yanked it out and snapped the PCB!
I've decided to put the original screen back in, it was nice having the clock and temperature, however, i plan to stick a 7" touch screen in there somewhere and hook up a carputer.
The only place i can think of where it would fit nicely and have an OEM look would be to fit one where the stereo is. This unfortunately means i'd have no stereo which brings me to my question....
I can guess that wiring up the cars speakers to the output of a computer isn't going to sound great. I thought i could perhaps go through an amp first but i'm trying to keep the cost down.
Does anyone have any recommendations? I was thinking of perhaps trying to fit a single din HU in the hole underneath the heater knobs and running the sound from the computer through that.
I'm in the process of photoshoping some pictures to see what it would look like so i'll post some at a later stage (unless someone has done something similar and wants to post their pics??). I don't like the idea of mounting a screen to the dash as it wouldn't last long in this aera!! lol
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Oh, and it's good to be back.. finally!!
