Gonna jump in here and answer that for you :)

The adapter is a solderless dc power connector. Don't know if it is 2.1 or 2.5mm.  I know this as I used them in a project a while back.
 
http://www.maplin.co.uk/solderless-2.5mm-plug-390564

I did try this myself without much joy. I suppose it depends on the PSU in question, but I tried this with my Jukebox build and got interference so just ran the amp from a spare PSU I had. 

As for connecting the monitor power to the PSU, If the Monitor is a 12V monitor then you would connect it in exactly the same manner as the AMP. If on the other hand the monitor is a 120/240V then I would advise the use of a Y Splitter which has 1 Plug and 2 PC Style connections on it.

or
http://www.maplin.co.uk/2-into-1-iec-splitter-44399

This is correct although if you use a y splitter you'll either need two cables to power your cab.
Just solder your monitor cable to the same terminals inside the psu that the power lead goes to. Drill a hole in the psu case and pop your cable out nice and neat...

One of the best Weecade clones I've seen. Love the integrated touch pad.  :cheers:

The touchpad is great. Playing popcap games all the time..I can even right click on the right hand Side of the pad and with the on screen keyboard its great for doing small adjustments the machine on the fly...

Great Job!! I know this is an old post. But would you be willing to share the plans you used to make the cabinet? I'd love to make a similar style. :)
Thanks!

WOW! Love this build.Found it by pure chance as i'm looking to do a similar build. Couple of questions......how did you cut your 12mm moulding and where did you get the moulding from as i have searched everywhere n they usually come up with either an american sized router bit that ya cant buy here in the uk and as for moulding i can only find 18mm

Thanks for the comments,

You can find 12mm t moulding if every colour but chrome...the t moulding on the cab is 12mm chrome car body trim.  It comes with adhesive on the back but I suggest taking this off, and superglue slowly the whole edge bit by bit,.. No slot needed..

thanks for the swift reply, i actually used the same molding on my nintendo full build but i made the mistake of leaving the foam sticky back tape on and it kept coming off......I'll have to get some of this then :) Also what ohms are your speakers? Do they have to match the ohms of the amp output? And do they sound good? as in better than PC speakers as i have a 2.1 sound system spare but the problem is I'd have no room to install the sub and without the sub they sound rubbish. I have an old nvidia 8800 gtx ill be putting in the system so will take a lot of my room for many extras.

Love ya led fans.....was actually thinking bout getting one of those cooljag programmable fans....they look awesome :)

Speakers are normal 4 inch car speakers, think there 8 ohm, amp was a cheap one from china.

They sound very good, even better now i have tweeters under the marquee to project the sound better, there not mega loud, but these mdf cabinets will rattle if to loud.

Here are some rough plans i used, I increased most measurements to fit my full size mobo and gfx card inside.  definately wouldnt fit in a standard weecade clone..

I know this is an old thread, but do you possibly still have a copy of these plans you would be kind of enough to share?

Thanks!
