Sean Clark, from mp3Car, shows us how to connect the amplifier in your vehicle, an essential component to any car computer install. The 12 volt positive power cable is wired directly to the positive terminal on the battery, with a fuse in line as close to the battery as possible. The negative wire is also run directly to the battery to prevent noise from being introduced into the system. The ACC wire and the speaker wires are connected to the factory wiring harness using an adapter made specifically for this vehicle purchased on the web.

Just to touch on the comment about having to use Y adapters to get rear channels, as long as you have 4 discrete channels it really is likely a software issue. Software like OpenMobile and Centrafuse should be able to have rear channels and choose how it's distributed through the sound card. Maybe they don't do that, but it's perfectly able to be done that way.Looking good so far.... I thought MY CarPC install was taking a long time, this is approaching 7 months now
