I was wondering if anyone has installed any consoles in their car? I have a chipped PS2 which I had paid $400 for (a year ago) and always thought about doing this. My main concern was I heard that most people end up frying their PS2 because of voltage problems. I'd like to know if anyone knows of this problem or something similar before I do end up installing it.

If you want to hook up a PS2 in your car, I'd get a power inverter from Radio Shack or someplace similar.

honestly Ps2's dont last very long in a vehicle. The hard drive just cant take any serious bouncing around. I cant tell you how many we have put in customers cars to find out 3-4 months later they are dead. I find that XBOX's tend to last ALOT longer. And modding them is easier :banger:

PS2's dont have harddrives, Xbox's do...

I'm new to this so bare with me plz. I have a 2002 Echo with a clarion 7" LCD touch screen, 4 JL 2" tweeters, 6 JL 5.25 VR evolution mid's. Those are powered by 2 menphis 800w amps.....my 2 JL W7 13" subs are powered by 2 1100w menphis amps. I too have my ps2 in my car, the only thing I can suggest......DON'T CHEAP OUT ON THE POWER INVERTER. I've never had a problem with mine, but I did have to upgrade the battery and alternater in my car 'cause of the system. :thumbup:

I've had my ps2 in my car just over a year now. I'm thinking about removing my passenger side dash pocket and mounting it in there permanently. Any suggestions on this would be cool.
