after several attempt of getting my ps2 apart i finally managed to bypass the power supply. since the power supply in the ps2 gives a nice 11.98vdc to the boards and circuits inside, i can now simply hook it up to my car with a simple voltage divider (basiclly means you throw a high-wattage resistor inline with the ps2) and i dont need a power inverter for it...haha.....ps2 goin in mah cizar. heh heh heh:) :D :) :D

well- all it is is a wire coming out of a normal looking ps2- i could take a pic f you want but if you wanna know how to do it i could explain and open it back up and show u and all- although i would suggest tha you wait till i get a chance to hook it up to a solid 12v before you mod yours as well in case i mades a stupid mistake r something

nice but i seen someone with a even better mod. they had their ps2 taken apart and put back together so it DIN sized. he said they went trough 2 until they got it right though. He said some sony reps saw it at a show and they couldn't even believe he done it.

i thought about doin that, but you would have to find all new ribbon cables- i would definitley do it if i could find fitting ribbon cables cuz then u can have the cd drive in the din space, the motherboard behind it, and the controller jacks in the dash or glove compartment.
if u could ask the guy (if u talk to him again) where he got the cables- then i would definitley try my best to do this-

i would cut up some IDE cables (Hard drive data cables) and use them, but the only problem is that the ribbon cables in the ps2 are much thinner and need to be plugged into very thin jacks. i though about tearing off the jacks and just soldering the wires on, but since its layered PCB (printed circuit board) you cant make a soldered connection with a copper strip thats inbetween the plastic layers.- im thinking that im gonna look with goolge for some similar ribbon cables-

go to sounddomain.com and look for a guy with a older model GS300. something about a Veilside body kit is in his summary.

Wow it would be sweet to put it in a DIN. That has to be extremely small. Can anyone post the link to the guy that already has one? I'm interested. :D

Whats DIN stand for?
I think im just gonna mount my ps2 under my seat or something, then you dont have controllers and **** kicking all over the place.

Dash-IN mounting. i hope. :) isn't there a chance that the controllers could get kicked around if they were under the seat also? take the ps2 apart and shove it in your dash. :)

There are generally two definitions for DIN: 1. DIN (Deutsche Inustrie Normen) is a German standard and is used to describe a type of round connector. 2. DIN head unit size. The most common in-dash receiver size found in many import vehicles.

That's your lesson for the day.
