Hello everyone looking into installing two Xbox 360 under both front seats with 7 inch monitors in the head rest will have A/V connections so no problems there just wondering about the powering to the Xbox what cable would I use what fues would I use ?, I am going to run a switch for the power somewhere along the power cable and any other extra details you could help me out with would be very helpful

Did the cable just go from battery to fuse and then to power converter straight to Xbox, what kinda of power converter did you use and do you picture of the power cable ?

Hi I'd go with the power converter also haha never installed an Xbox in a car but I'm guessing it'd be very simple . How you've explained it is how I'd do it power cable from battery with a fusable link then plug your Xbox straight in to the converter, however on the cable size issue the converter SHOULD come with its own wiring kit otherwise read the instructions if not supplied

360's use a "common" atx style psu. All you'll need is a 12v and a 5v regulated supply for it to run off your car. Any switch mode supply would be fine, I would stay away from linear supply's though as there affected by input voltage. Other than that just buy a dc-ac inverter.


Wow s**t! Just relised it's about a month old, what route did u go?
