View from the driver's seat. Just need to tie it all together.
The victims....iPod, cables and a canabalized set of Sony headphones. The headphones are several years old and cost about $20 bucks.
Busted the second half of the headset. No soldering iron or skills. Now I'm screwed.
Maybe not. Luckily I had an older pair I used for a similar setup with a half helmet.
Coffee break. Union rules. LOL
Second set ready for install.
Detail pic of how I stuffed the wiring in behind the speakers to secure them and protect them from disconnecting from the speakers as on the first set.
The Mix-It2 has a clip which holds it to the tank bag securely. Still have to secure the iPod.
Speaker inside the helmet. Cutting the housing away did not affect sound quality. Also, I'm hoping that the foam surrounding the speaker will help kill some wind noise.
Wires tucked up into the back of the helmet under the liner. I don't feel it while wearing the helmet.
My fancy zip-tie method of cable length reduction. :)
This should hold the iPod securely. God bless velcro!
Mix-It2 faces left so I can adjust volume on the fly.
Charging the iPods for testing tomorrow if the weather cooperates.
Zumo outputs in mono, through a stereo cable. It's plugged into the Mix-It2 through a mono input with override capabilities. When the lady says to turn, it kills the music volume so you can here the instructions, and then resumes after the instructions are given. I still need to route the wiring from the gps so it'll look better.
Tucks away nicely in the smallest bag I have. Should work fine!
