    Sound from Carputer to Multiple Speakers

    Im planning on getting the beginner package thing with the carpc and the flip screen included. just wondering if the sound card is good (if it even comes with one), or if i should upgrade to a better one.

    my main goal is audio so i dont mind spending a lot to get the good sound.

    i have 6 speakers now (3 sets of 2) but would like to add another set of 2 in the rear. just wondering the best way to wire it up with
    1) a good sound card
    2) amount of amps
    3) a way to control each speakers eq and such as best i can with the actual computer


    also, i will probably be removing the comp in the winter along with the harddrives of music. i want to be able to use the flipscreen as a cd player so i can still listen to music so it will need to be connected to the speakers also.

    im not sure if the actual screen has a built in cd player so i may need to add one in but either way, it has to be also hooked up with the speakers.

    i was thinking of maybe one of those splitters where you flip a switch to pick what source you want the audio coming from, maybe?

    just throw out any help you can give and i will appreciate it

    thank you very much.

    1) a good sound card: Auzentech makes some great ones. One with a Burr Brown OpAmp is what you may want

    2) amount of amps: that all depends on how your speakers are setup...but with 3 sets, i assume front middle of car and rear...so you need 2 for those, and one for the sub making that 3....or you can dedicate an amp per set of speakers and maybe bridge them for extra juice if they are 4 channel.

    3) a way to control each speakers eq and such as best i can with the actual computer: you definately want an Alpine PXA-H701 and a controller like the RUX-C701. 31 band equalizer per channel and it can do 5.1 if you wish....and it has digital optical inputs for the most amazing sound...I have one, but i havent fully installed it yet...but i have seen one in action, and its amazing...

    good luck..
