Trust pioneer to bring up car stereos rolleyes.gif Still, thats a brilliant idea. Wake up the neighbors at 3am in the morning with your speakers on full blast while playing BF3 biggrin.gif I cant wait to see the desk build take shape. Are you going to use glass or acrylic? Im suggesting glass for a desk build because it scratches less easier.

Well, my thoughts were to use a car head unit (as its 12v DC, same as a computer.....), but only use it as a source basically. You'd have to use home amplifiers of some type to drive the speakers, be them mini T amps, or a seperate receiver somewhere (T amps would be best, and cheaper, since the car head unit is already there). Powered subwoofers are already amped, so that's not a problem. He'd just need a T amp ($90 for a good one, or $30 ish for an okay one), and some bookshelf speakers. Add a powered sub, and bam, great setup, that he can use with his computer on or off. smile.gif

I was going to go with glass until yesterday, but the guy that does the glass said that he cannot do the curve that i want.The curve that he showed me was way to small and would change the whole idea and concept of the desk, so going back to acrylic that can be molded any way i want.

Added a few ideas to my initial threat (scroll down a bit) with hot swap trays, to be easier to take out disks..Also changes the left side curve from wood to plexi glass.....Tell me what you guys think..

Absolutely agree tongue.gif In the picture you can only see 1 fan but all together i have 4 large fans (2 x 23cm and 2x18 cm) and a few small fans that am still thinking were to put them.
