    tablet install

    Hi all I am installing a tablet in place of the clock cd changer area using the pac audio kit. It seems pretty straight forward but thought someone might have a tip or two that would come in handy.

    Awesome I want to see pics of the outcome

    I have been thinking of doing this with a iPad mini since I rarely use my cd changer now(would have to get someone to do the dash work as i am afraid I would mess up and ruin the dash)

    You will need a switched power feed(there is a few fuses in the dash fuse box that will work) to run to the power adaptor of the tablet

    Plus the audio output of the tablet would have to be high enough so it doesn't distort but you don't have to crank the volume up to just hear it

    Re: tablet install

    cool thanks for the reply. The power was and is the only thing im not so sure about. And I will post pics of the job. I think the ipad mini is a touch too big and would run into the ashtray, but they make a 9" android tablet that will fit almost perfect(saw that after I ordered a 7")

    I came close to adding the Rockford 3sixty processor to the setup in my car but the radio I have already had something like it
    You may have outdone me though(mine is for audio quality and not spl but it can hit some crazy levels)
