Spa TV Install

After the speakers were installed it was quickly decided that we best have a screen as well.

I had a spare 17″ lcd lying around which I paired with a Raspberry Pi running XBMC.

12v and VGA run from the back of the screen back to the main rack keeping all the mains voltage well away from the bathroom.

The wall before we began
Hole all cut out
Bracket, cables and plaster in place
Raspberry Pi to drive both the screen and ceiling speakers. Screen is via a HDMI -> VGA converter through the roof.
Initial testing
Tinted glass and tiles in place

All Finished including chocolate stains from the kids…

 

And Youtube video of it up and running:

Bathroom ceiling speaker install

Wasn’t long after I moved into the new house that I knew I wanted some sound in the bathroom while enjoying the spa bath so I got to cutting some holes….

Cables run through the roof back to the main rack where they are powered by a cheap class D chip amp.
