One of these should do the trick:
Ive searched several threads on this forums and I'm not really finding much that seems like a good option. I need something that is a physical volume knob that I can mold into my dash for control of my volume instead of having to look at the screen and find the button and keep pushing it to make my volume go down. I realize I could do something with fusion but thats not what I want. I need something I can use right away.(The griffin powermate is not an option because its way to big to put into the screen)
I'm in the same situation. I figure it will be better to have the volume knob control the amplifier input rather than the software output in case of glitches/etc. Also my carputer is in the boot so if I got one of these: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...+Control-.html I'd have to run RCA to the front, right?
Instead I've found this: http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_c...hp?prod_id=446 which looks like you only need to run the wires for the knob to the front. Plus the pass-through seems handy. Does anyone know of a similar but less expensive alternative?
switch that cuts the remote send line to the amps would do the trick :P
but seriously it would be handy if the reason your doing this is say a phone call, or you need to speak to someone.
otherwise you could invest in making or buying for that matter a pre-amp like most higher enough home theater systems have, and just havfe the pre amp mounted in the front, like second din slot or glovebox
The knob needs to be really small. I have a Alpine MRP-F450 amp, there is an extra connector on the amp itself is that for volume control?
