Hey guys, I was reading the thread awhile ago, some guy used an xbox with one of the in-dash 7" monitor systems. Would it be possible to hook an xbox up, with just say, for example, one of those 15 inch fold down monitors? what else would you need to put sound to all of the speakers, and use the xbox as your source for music? I have a fully modded xbox, running linux and much more. I'm just trying to find options as i don't use the xbox much anymore i figured this could put it to good use. thanks for any info in advance guys.

Just realized I might get a few more answers in the audio section, could a mod please move this for me?

why an XBOX as your music source why not a cd/mp3wma head unit, if your not gonna use it for playing games it defeats the purpopse.

thats what i was hoping, thanks! but now onto cnewinghams question, what monitors out there would work, i was actually looking at a 10.4" fold-down from the top until i remmembered i had a targa top, there isnt room with it off... so I'm not sure what to use now.

i meant i don't use it for games, in the house anymore. If i put it in the car it would be different, as i'm in there more often now.. lol

go to mp3car.com there are two mkiii supras there with this setup in their cars. but why use an x-box when you can use a PC and do all kinds of nifty things. I have two computers that Im going to build my "carputer" out of, just need a 7" monitor, and a power inverter, and some time to build it up.

anyway good luck, Ian

If you got a hacked xbox, then you can use it to play media files and games etc... but I'd rather put a pc in there... possibilities are endless with a PC... imagine wifi internet in your... a huge mp3 playlist, touchscreen monitor... i would go nuts! mmmmmmmmm...

i don't need to be searching the internet, I already have a huge mp3 list in there, 26+gigs and counting. But a touch screen would be NICE.
