We all know the iPad will find a use in many different environments. For those that are gadget junkies and love tinkering with Car Audio, we have found something that you'll be drooling over. While reading my favorite Auto News site today, I ran across an article that debuted the first Apple iPad in-car installation. The install was done by Doug Bernards of SoundMan Car Audio in Santa Clarita, California with a Toyota Tacoma pickup.
Check out the video after the jump!We chose to use the iPad as the only source for the vehicles entertainment system. The dock connector will plug into a cable that runs to a Onkyo ND-S1 which will send the digital signal from the iPad directly into an Audison Bit One. The Bit One will then act as the D/A converter, and will also process the audio signal. The Bit One also has a great controller for adjusting the volume and audio settings. The amplifier we chose is the McIntosh MCC406M. Stay tunned for the rest of the build. You'll be able to find all the pictures and videos on this page as they become available.
