    audio with no head unit

    I'm new to the car computer scene, but not to the computer scene. I want to install a car computer in my vehicle as cheaply as possible. At the same time I do not want to run a head unit, but I would like to keep using the factory speakers and maintain a separate subwoofer volume control. I will be running two amplifiers, one for highs/mids (separate of factory speakers) and one for subwoofers. What's the simplest way to go about something like this and maintain quality sound and the desired controls?

    Check out the Car Audio FAQs section at the top of the car audio sub-forum. That should help you get started.
