Nice work. :)
How are you going to control it? Android? Gamepad or IR remote?

where will you fit the xbox in the car? i had one in a ford escort estate which i fitted under the passenger seat, was quite snug to say the least lol.
i ran mine off a 7in ripspeed screen for video and obviously audio via head unit. i then had a mate of mine make an "extension" cable from a brake away cable and a xbox2usb cable for the ir remote dongle thing and had that coming up beside the seat and center console as when i plugged the dongle in to the controller port the remote didnt work from the front of the car. to be honest i cant take credit for the extension cable idea as my mate came up with that.

all the best

I was explaining this the other day to kozz on TS, I worked in car Audio for almost 3 years BTW.
Under the seat is a UBER last resort solution. You do that only if you have a 2 Seater sport car or similar.
I strongly advice you to not install anything under your seats unless you absolutely need to, and I'm sure you don't "need" to put the Xbox there.
It will get exposed to natural elements like you have no idea.

Well at the moment the xbox is in the front foot-well.....powered by a `Joytec` inverter....at least i want to move the xbox behind the front seats as i never have rear passengers etc.....in the boot there's 3 amps and 2 subs and a 15` screen.....i have a old xbox in the loft and might try and see if i can fit it in the glove box...without case and dvd drive etc.... :D
