Optimum connection from car pc to amp.
I intend to go headless and run my car pc directly to my speakers through a 41hz.com amp 9 kit.
I have read this thread and have determined that it says to essentially splice the output of the green jack on the sound card to each input on the amp.
The particular question I had was how many channels it sends out that way. I was wanting to support as many channel outputs as mp3 files would put out. If it puts out two channels, would the green audio jack put out two channels? If so, how? I was thinking that each channel would need its own jack.
The reason I am contemplating all this is because of all the hype over 5.1 surround. After doing some research, I have concluded that mp3 files most commonly put out two channels (stereo)(somebody correct me if I'm wrong), so it wouldn't really be necessary to accommodate more than two channels, since the mp3 files would only be sending out two channels anyway.
To sum up, how do I take advantage of the two channels sent out by the mp3 files? Do I need a sound card one jack per channel, or will a standard three jack on board audio from the motherboard work?
