Re: Where do you put your stereo or other electronics?

Just don't put it where some manufacturers put them, just out of reach when you are driving. I think they do that so the driver can't play with the radio while driving. Since you didn't say what kind of bus you have, any answer you get might not apply.

I think everyone needs to switch back from decaf.

Re: Where do you put your stereo or other electronics?

Hopefully this argument is finished but I want to take a moment to point something out. There is no requirement here to post. If there is a post you think might be silly why not just skip over it and let others reply if they wish. At no point should there be a divide between a newbie and a veteran here. Quite frankly, I am a newbie and I think we are all newbies as everyone of us has asked a question and probably will ask a question in the future. Belittling people only degrades the community, more so than a person asking a question you think they should be able to find the answer to on their own. And, at no point should anyone be told to go away because with that kind of an attitude, it won't be long and everyone will go away. My two cents worth.

Travelinwithus. Earlier in this post I agreed to bury the hatchet and I would appreciate it if you wish to continue the debate that you would do so via PM so that the hatchet remains buried. Jack

I have no intention of continuing the debate, but I did wish to let my opinion be known.

Re: Where do you put your stereo or other electronics?

"Can't we all just get along???"

I plan on putting mine above my fridge along with a dvd/tv player...

I've been looking at car stereos that have a remote so its easy to change channels or volume from the drivers seat... I feel that we will use it often when parked and want easy access to it, not climbing over the driver seat and such...

I'll throw this out there as well, I plan on using only automotive electronics... Not sure if it's true, but a buddy that does a lot of audio/video stuff was concerned about non auto electronics not being able to handle the vibrations from traveling... Plus the auto dvds and tvs are already 12v...

Re: Where do you put your stereo or other electronics?

Glad you two are having fun...
on another subject..
I put my sterio and thermostat between the two cabinet doors above my dinette - which is on the passenger side. Since this overhead cabinet is about 6 feet long, the sterio fits nicely, with a radio antenna above it on the roof. This was a unit out of a motorhome...
my tv set is centered in front of the cabinet above the windshield, with a swing out and down type of wall mount bolted to that cabinet, and the blueray thingy is in the cabinet above the drivers seat.
the bus radio/pa thingy is currently not hooked up at all as i can either run the sterio, or use the inverter whilst traveling for cd/radio that i have..
I have yet to watch tv on my flatscreen whilst driving...

With these self driving cars coming out, kick back in the recliner, have a cold one, and let the bus do the driving for you!
