The problem is that i want to keep the radio signal from the antenna!
could i keep the head unit to keep the best radio signal?
If you do that, you'll be bypassing the headunit.Quote:
can i plug the remote from my head unit ...to the amplifier...and plug the amplifier to my sound card ...
You want Sound Card -> Headunit AUX IN -> Amplifier(s)
You already asked that. Yes, you could, but you would be bypassing the headunit, and losing all of its functionality, including the radio.Quote:
could i conect the radio to my sound car integrated in the pc(the green slot) and conect the sound card usb via the usb port to my amplifiers?
SOUND CARD -> HEADUNIT AUX IN -> AMPLIFIER(S)
It doesn't matter for a car environment. You're not going to be using 7.1 from the sound card.Quote:
i have a sound car audigy usb....it is suposed to my 7.1 but i dont see 8 ports.... i'm i suposed to use 'y' rca?
You'll use simple stereo (left & right channels) into the headunit.
I think the 8Gb is the SSD, not the RAM...
I purchased one of the SATA drive units (160gig I believe) with the extended battery for a similar purpose. I did it so it could be moved between cars for road-trips and such. I'm in the process of machining some swing arms so that the laptop can be mounted (kinda like a cop car's is). I use an aux input to my HU (pop-up DVD Player) and have it currently setup to use the HU's display as a secondary monitor. I have GPS software on the laptop which works really well (better than our garmin stand-alone unit). I figured out how to connect it to my cell and use it as a modem (480 up/down) and having internet on the run is sweet.
I always have the laptop with me but I don't always connect it - which is why I recommend keeping your head unit for radio and jacking in when you want more. It's nice to have both and I typically use it on the longer drives.
I do plan on using a touch screen as a second monitor in the next couple of months but finding the mounting location will be tough (I have a Dodge 2500 quad cab) since I want it to be located above the steering wheel to the left to minimize the distance I have to look.
So far I love it but keeping it simple really turned out to make it even nicer. I wanted to have a self-contained PC and I may some day. For the short term it really is awesome though!
i returned the aspire one
