    Connection between PC & Amps

    Hello, been a lurker now and in the past and just have a question regarding the hookup between my pc and amps. If there's a thread or threads already on this topic would someone direct me please. Mind you I don't have my pc set up yet and I'm going to be buying all new amps and subs - Kicker. I've noticed in the forums that when hooking up the amps and pc when eliminating the head unit there's alot of talk about RCAs. However, isn't there a way to: pc --> 4-channel amp & pc --> mono amp, optically. Obviously, I'm only doing 4 speaker locations, and then one dvc sub in a sealed box.
    Your help is thoroughly appreciated.

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Thank you for your response.

    So is there a way to connect the pc and amp(s) with optical in and outs?

    you would have to find a car audio amp that accepts an optical input. or use a digital-analog converter (DAC).

    or use an audio processor (DSP) that accepts digital input. check the car audio FAQ subforum.

    A lot of car audio products don't have optical yet (at least not aftermarket). Would be nice though to run fiber optics thru the car.
