PS2 mounting ideas

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for ways to mount a ps2? At this stage, im thinking under the seat, in an mdf box (to allow it to be screwed down), with ventilation holes for the fan. Any other suggestions? The glove box is out, cause it wont fit :(

Do you have a split rear seat?????

Maybe make up some brackets and put it in behind there. Out of the way and hidden from light fingers......

Re: PS2 mounting ideas

All depends if you want a permanent install or not. I have mine located under passenger seat and it sits in a 6mm mdf frame to stop it sliding. All the leads run to under the seat so i can disconnect it and use it anywhere and take it out so it dont get stolen.

Thats the sort of thing I was thinking about, but carpeting it etc to protect it from feet, and so that it is not so visible. Unfortunatly, the rear seat wont be an option, as it sill get in the way of the sub box.

Re: PS2 mounting ideas

my piece of mdf is painted black and it is screwed into the floor tucked right under the seat. You can not see it at all unless front seat slides all the way forward. There was just enough clearance between ps2 and seat and no one has yet kicked it or even noticed it there while sitting in the rear.

Re: PS2 mounting ideas

Some quick ideas as I am currently working on mounting mne. I am haveing anew piece made from fiberglass to replace the back section of the center console. I will lose the cup holder and steroe controls, but the PS2 will be flush mounted standing up, that way I can also use it to play DVD's in the headrests as well.
I have seen it mounted under the Glove box as well as center console, howeeer the center console isnt really optimal, as the PS2 basically has ot lay on its side and it isnt really designed to do so.
I have seen a couple people take them apart and relocate ports and the trays, but thats a little too much I think
Good luck!

Re: PS2 mounting ideas

Well, ive decided to go with the back seat option, mounted in a sort of box. Controller extenders will be run under the back seats/carpet, and mounted in the center console, allowing the controllers to be pluged in there. Just means that I have to re think my idea for the sub box, to allow the seat to close with out hitting the box.

Re: PS2 mounting ideas

When I had the ea-ed style dash in the car, I had the screed mounted just to the left of the trip computer. Now that I have the ef dash, im not sure where to mount it, still have to work that one out.

Yeah, things have been getting out of control a bit lately, but thats ok. All fun and games :) Havent got pics atm, cause the car is in the panel shop getting re-sprayed. Im also in the process of modifying the front trims for a speaker mount. This way, I dont have to have pods screwed to the trims. When done, the whole lot will be vacum formed, to look factory.
