Step 11: Mounting Components
Now that we have the frames built and the air cylinders working together, it's time to really get down to business and start trying to figure out how to shove:
(2) Drive motors with 10" Wheels (From Electric Wheel chair)
Custom 10" Subwoofer Box
Amplifier for Subwoofer
Car Radio for powering mids/highs and taking computer input
(2) 12v 35Ah SLA Batteries
Air buffer tank
Electronics (Solenoid, drive speed controllers, Arduino, power switch, etc)
Now if you remember, the Main Stage frame was 28 x 44.5 inches, this means that the drive train frame was smaller, around 25x42" where all of this stuff has to fit. What are we waiting for?! Lets get to it!
We start installing by necessity. Obviously we need to drive around, so the motors and wheels get mounted first! Next is the batteries (can't forget those)..and then the next biggest item which was the subwoofer.
