radio and others stuff install in C5 2004 - need help :)

Post by toma » 14 Mar 2019, 15:07

hello everyone :)
I need little help. Five months ago, I took Joying radio along with a bunch of extra things I think to put up with (front and rear camera shooting, anti-theft cameras (who knows maybe someone take radio, car is safe :rofl2:
), parking sensors ahead and back, back driving camera and motion picture camera.


What I'm interested in for the first part of the job is the following:
1. how to additionally place the fan (to the place where the radio unit enters, since there is very little space), to additionally cool the joying unit since i was reading it could be additionally heated due to the p5x chip

2. In the picture you see how i just tested joying how it works. He would stand that way, but I would raise it up for the other 2 rows of these mid-flute openings, so I'm afraid not to blow me into cold or warm air (not to break). Do I permanently turn it off or somehow I close the bottom two lines so I have the upper 3 that could blow?

Just put some tape over the bottom slats of the vent to stop the airflow coming out directly onto the unit - not a problem with cold air, as that will help cool it - but in the winter you might not want hot air hitting the unit, so tape off the bottom slats.

Where you have it is ok, as the air can naturally circulate around the unit. Much better than being inside the dashboard, where the other units suffer die to lack of air circulation.

I would not worry about it. :-D

That is solution for problem number 2. But what to do with problem 1. Main unit is going inside of dashboard and there re lot of warm air inside. i was thinking to put one fan (on left side where is going main unit) inside of main unit. fan will make to remove heat from unit, maybe :D

I can't see what else is going in from your picture - can you put another picture up? Very little room in there - depending how big it is it might be better to put it in the glovebox.
