Brad:

Hate to be dense, but on the Omron page you linked to, there are maybe 50 different versions of the relay. 15Amps and 10 Amps, and various other types. Could you point to the specific relay we need by giving the sku number?

thanks again

So can someone with decent soldering skills and almost no electronics skills accomplish this???

Oh, and Brad...what did you use to tint the screen of your ipod?

Thanks.

Ok, I wasn't sure of your electronics background. Since a good number of them would work.

A specific one would be... LY2-DC12 (LY specifies the model line, 2 is the number of poles, and DC12 is the coil type, for us, 12V DC)

As for my pod'* screen, I used to do a lot of theatre lighting and such, so I amassed quite a collection of high temperature gels for use in 500W+++ halogen spots.

I entirely dismantled my pod, and cut a piece of gel just the size I need to cover the screen and inserted it inbetween the screen and the face of the pod itself, and reassambled.


petraman, absolutely, you just need to be confident and competent with your basic skills.

The greatest difficulty is dealing with the tiny tiny, short, and fragile wires.

Once I get my manual up, take a look at it, and then you'll be able to decide if you can do it or not.



As a continuation: I took my laptop out to the car tonight and brought along a couple DVDs to test (XMEN: Last Stand, and Posseidon) wow was that super fun in the car at night with the subs rocking the whole car when something was exploding, or the boat was a rockn'! Way too fun. Only complaint with DVDs was the lack of 5.1, but that'* just getting greedy (Although it could actually be done, maybe one day...)

Doesnt the head unit already have the basic 5.1 technology? And if so, why not just download an extension or something to make the laptop operate in it.

Very super, super, super basic. To the extent you wouldn't be modifying the stereo itself, so much as the wiring harness feeding the signals to the Bose amp (at least in my case) if you're non-Bose, you're pretty much SOL.

This def. sounds like a fun project. Just wondering, but is there any way to put a current-detecting switch? ie, it senses that there'* sound traveling through the cables and it switches it automatically. Or is this science fiction??

Well the issue there would be the nature of sound, the signal coming down the wire will never be constant, and sometimes nothing. So it would be difficult to reliably detect and switch. Then you would need a solid state detection system, that would then actuate a relay.

hmm, is there some way I can put a capacitor in series with the circuit to create a constant flow? Or maybe it only switches when it hears sound, like when it hears the Mp3 player, it switches there, and when it hears the cd player, it switches there, so it doesn't switch if it doesn't hear it. Could that work?

The way this works is that the CD player is ALWAYS playing, but the stereo itself instead of receiving the CD'* audio it gets the new line in I've added.

And like I said "hears" doesn't really work at the circuit logic level, since there will alawys be quiet parts, or completely silent parts.
