KT_Haha's Carputer

Recommended Posts

ok, finally got sometime to make a post on what I have done

Specifications of the carputer:

ASUS Barebone PC Pundit-P2

AMD Sempron 3100+ CPU

IBM keyboard (with the little red knob mouse)

512MB RAM

200GB Seagate HDD

ASUS WiFi Dongle

This is after I first installed it, without any fascia kits.

In the left hand corner is where I have fixed the GPS receiver

Then I found the fascia kit and it became this

The computer sits nicely under the passenger seat, and it has a built in DVD drive.

The back of the computer, a bit messy but it will have to do for now until I find more time to fix it up

And the front end program Centrafuse which runs pretty well.

i'd say there's 1 of 2 reasons... or at least there's 2 reasons i want a head deck in my car:

1. USB FM receivers are terrible, and its better just to run off a head unit.. i've finally got my USB receiver working alright, but reception is still dodgy.

2. if you have a head unit with AUX in, you can run line out from the PC and into the AUX in of the head unit, and do all your sound control off the head unit...

actually 3 reasons: carputer takes a good amount of time too boot up (at least my crap one does).. so if you want some music straight off the bat, thre's your answer..

ok sorry to hijack your thread daniel...

i'm loving your carputer setup - the PC specs absolutely demolish mine... how did you change the centrafuse logo to sportivo?

to change the centrafuse logo, you can replace the existing "logo.png" with your one then it would change the logo.

The reason to have a head deck, because the PC needs some sort of amplifier to drive the speakers, so I had two options, either to put in an amp or to get a head deck. And I chose the head deck because it gave me radio as well as it solved a lot of the engine noise problems.

I think Dylan's LCD has a built in AMP, that would have been a nice unit to have too.
