    Mounting of video game console?

    I finally got my tv hooked up. I have spare RCA cables (video and audio) that I ran under the passenger front seat, however when I hook up a console there's wires everywhere. Has anyone done a clean install for a console where there's no real visible wires running except obviously for the controller? Pics? Suggestions? Thanks a bunch.

    Don't tell me what to do with my car, I don't tell you how to be a jackass. It's for early mornings instead of sitting in my car waiting for the bus to come because it's cold outside, I can keep myself entertained.

    Only problem for me there is that I'm using old Nintendo and Super Nintendo which are too bulky to fit in there.

    I drive to my college campus and have to park about 2 1/2 miles from where my classes are because our transportation system stinks, and thus I take a bus from the parking lot to my classes, because you would walk that far when its 30 degrees out at 9 in the morning? Why don't you get a freaking life I didn't ask anyone to come into my thread and act like a piece of ****.

    Interesting, what about the power source? Did you hard wire a power inverter? I'd go under seat for long rides with passengers, or when I'm showing it off, otherwise I use the NES in the house so I want it to be easy enough to just remove a few plugs, but I can easily get an extra NES power adapter to keep in the car. Do you have any pics?

    My power inverter isnt hard wired in yet.. but i have that uner my seat and the xbox is under the passenger seat. It is pretty easy to take out when you want to bring it in the house. just need extra wires. Sorry no pics of it right now. Maybe I can hook you up tomorrow.

    Sounds good, are you planning to hardwire the inverter? I'm just worried about power consumption, I have full system as it is minus sub/amp which will be coming over the summer. Should I look into a cap?

    Yes i do plan on hard wiring it in some day.. As far as a cap i'm not that sure. You wont need one yet and maybe try without one unless you see problems. I'm not an expert on that though. What type of screen set up do you have. Flip out or custom indash

    Flip out, non-motorized.
