Default what im going to attemp

I'm thinking about installing/mounting a Xantrex XPOWER-1750 and then 2 smaller ones likely 500'*...


this is the plan


i have a bluetooth transmitter hooked up to my home PC and a receiver on my laptop over a terrabyte of hard drive space thats almost completely full with music and movies. My laptop is going in the car when i can figure out how to mount it so that the front pass seat is still usable. The 1750 will be mounted in the trunk along with the smaller inverters i'll mount the HDD'* in external cases (already done) and run the usb cables under the carpet to close to where the laptop will mount. running a line from audio out on the sound card of the lap top to the deck i should have the largest rolling ipod im also thinking of using the spare tire well for a 15 inch sub instead of mounting a huge box in there..

Any ideas on the inverters

cause im sure on all the audio video i know the laptop will run any screens i want to mount in the car
and with the bluetooth im sending and removing files from the car with out being in the car. and with things like war driving lol im downloading music and movies on the go lol

what do you need ideas for?

inverter companies or something like that?

Sounds like a decent plan if you can execute it properly.

well you could make brackets and a platform that hangs from the rear deck. then mount everything to that platform.

I would suggest making the back of the platform on hinges so it essentially fold down to make it easy to work on components in it.

people do that to mount amps and such. A wander around home depot and lowes should be in order.
