It's a pleassure to show such projects, when getting positive response.
Itzben: A LOT of MODs:-
At present I'm running a car-pc system with an 8" touschscreen integrated in the center dash (the 2DIN install only lasted for 3 days).
The goal is to have a 10.1" touchscreen integrated, but then I will have to re-locate the "buttons" from the dash at first, and this takes more time than I have at the moment.
I'm going for an audiophile setup, so I will be running either a 3-way (woofer, midrange, tweeter) install in front, or a 4-way (sub-woofer, woofer, midrange, tweeter). The 4-way is my biggest wish, but it depends on if I can get enough enclosure-volume "inside" the dash-board to have a woofer installed.
I have "hacked" a home-stereo DAC to be running from 12VDC, so this will be used as the audio-source.
My UP! is going to be an SQ-car, and I'm much focussed on having a perfect sound reproduction inside, so a lot of projects and MODs will follow in regards to this.
Haha, sure, of course...I forgot that.It should work the same way, as it just runs into the AUX of the RDC210 now, so as long as you'll have a HU that has AUX, there should be no problem.
I can tell you that you'll notice a BIG difference in the audio reproduction when changing the HU.
Frankly speaking the standard HU in the UP! is some of the worst I have ever heard, so you should look much forward to the change-out...
Hello Aze, I hope you can read this message after 3 years from your last. I've seen your AMAZING work to place a double din in your Up!. I need to ask you one thing. I want to make the same tranformation but I don't know how to made or to create the parts to place the 2 din car stereo and the air conditioning commands. Is there a way for me to buy them from you? In affermative case, I'm very interested to buy them. Please send me an email to [email protected]. Thank you
OK. I'm actually working on a DIY KIT, for the 2DIN conversion, as I have had a lot of reuests for this!
There's a lot of things to have in mind when designing it, but the first prototype is already done, and some small changes are about to be made, before having it mass-fabricated!
I can send you more details in a PM if you have any interest...
