Complete custom van prodject for audio competitions, vacations, breaking things!
Mobile computing at its loudest ;) 15" LCD Mounted in the dash where ashtray, sterio and cup holders used to be. 700 Watt inverter from Wal-Mart Chaintec mobo (cheapo socket 478 w/ VIA chipset) 2ghz celly PNY 440SE NVIDIA AGP 512 pc2100 60gb maxtor hdd Optorite 8x4x8x DVD+RW, 4x4x8x DVD-RW, 24x24x24x CD-RW External USB 2.0 Slim DVD Writer Microsoft GPS unit with Streets 2005 80211.b wireless pci, 80211.b wireless usb (sometimes one picks up better than the other)
200 Watt MDS amp (mids/highs) 2 Kenwood 920 Watt amps (mids/lows) 6 queen sized foam rubber mattresses (for audio insulation) 4 bags of extra large size pillow stuffing (for the doors)
Unfortunately this project has cost quite a deal of money and is not exactly "finished"... (1800+ just in the puter and audio). I bought the van off the dealerships lot for $2000 (they wanted 4300) i have yet to sink about $3000 more into it for it to be "show room finished" and 1200 of that will be just tires and rims.
Took a L O T of thinking, cutting, re-thinking, re-cutting and LOTS of planning on how to set the computer in the dash instead of just having a computer in a case strapped down somewhere in the vehicle.
Theres enough power in it that it blew the roof off of the cross members and the window behind the drivers seat almost blew out onto the ground durring the first sound check.
*edit* As of 9-18-05, i entered my first audio competition with this van with all 3 amps, 4 subs, 2 6x8's, 2 6"'s and scored in the 3rd round 144.4 decibles, 1st round was 138, 2nd was 138.6 --- didnt place but even the high rollers there thought it was wicked
