what's the price without the 20 feet of cable?
but put me in for a full kit...
could it be an option to solder it myself? or would it not make any differnce in price?


Without the 20 foot cable (includes two DB-25 connectors) you can save $30. If you wish to solder the boards yourself you can
save an additional $45.

Hope this helps,

Stu

Hi Stu,

If you have another extender setup, I would like to place another order (preferably, without the ribbon cable).

Thanks, Sean

Stu,

Just curious but how long will it take for these to be completed. I'm tempted to buy 1 more set of pcbs to get this ball rolling.....

Hey Charles,

It takes about 4 weeks for the PCBs to get made. From there it takes another day or so to get about 4 made up and shipped out.

Hope that answers your question.

I did a search for how to add wi-fi in my car, and some how I ended up reading this post. What a cool product! I want one, I yelled out! Then I realized I actually ordered one in october 2007 wink

Stu: Do you have an updated price for a complete set? $288 + shipping, is it?

And come on - one more and we are GO! Somebody?

You guys still looking for 1 more person on this? If so count me in for the bare PCB's only. Do not really have a need for an extender in my current setup, but you never know..........

Yeah we needed at least one more to get to the 15 sets. Yours makes 15. So now we can get this last run underway! I'll start sending out PMs with payment instructions to folks.

Thanks,

As of today, everyone on the list should have been contacted by PM or e-mail. If you want one and did not receive a PM or e-mail, please PM me indicating what you want and where it will be shipped.

Thanks,
Stu

It's no big deal. I haven't ordered anything yet anyway. I'll likely order a couple extra boards and rarer parts in case a couple folks want one later on.

I like the sound of that -- I'd love to order one, just in case, but I'd also like a spare empeg, too, and at the moment, I can justify neither. frown

If available, can I get two sets of bare PCBs? Is the price still ~$35 a set for boards?

Yes, but please PM me with shipping location. I plan to order these over the weekend so I will need to hear from you soon.

Thanks,

One issue...the filter beads, part #80-BK2125LL560TK from Mouser is obsolete, and thus cannot be ordered. Instead, order part #80-Z0805C560CSMST. Same thing, as per Mouser.

...also, where can one find the RS232 filters, other than Patrick? Mouser and Digikey seem to be of no help. I was able to find them on Newark.com, so I suppose I can order from them if necessary. Seems a minimum order of 5 at ~$4 each plus a $20 handling fee does not make them cheap.

Other than the RS232 filters, my totals for all of the bits for (2) boards at Digikey and Mouser, were $129.20 and $83.53, respectively. So if you do it yourself, you can pretty much have two sets extenders for just slightly over $300. Not bad, considering.

Stu,

Have you got any kits going spare at the moment ???

I may have the use for one in my new car, haven't fully decided what to do yet, I wanted to check if this option is still open to me first.

Cheers

Cris.

Hi Cris,

You are mostly in luck! I ordered a few extra PCBs and some of the parts. I did not order extra ICs because some of them are quite expensive and I don't wish to carry them in inventory. I can always order more parts to populate the spare PCBs if you or anyone else is interested in the spares. Just PM me if you would like one.

Stu

I just dicovered this thread and read the entire thing with anticipation to see what would happen at the end. I guess I kind of missed the boat on this one, eh? Anyone out there with a spare they want to sell me? Stu?

There was recently someone in the For Sale forum that was selling one. Looks like it might still be available:

Is there any way to get one of these now? Looks like this might be my only install option now. I've been using Empeg for about 12 years and hope to keep on using it. I am pretty good at assembling boards if there is an empty one or if that was an option. Thanks!
