    Or would using one of these be better? even though it looks harder to hook up..

    Edit: hrmm JL Audio CL-RLC not available here in Aus anyway..
    Will need to find similar or just try a cheapy.. http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=AA3078
    all of the above are the exact same thing, just a different outer case/manufacturer.

    the main difference between the above options and the rlc is output volume. if you are currently happy with the output volume of the pc, then the option you linked to before is fine. the disadvantage to it is that you need to loop the audio signal to the knob installation location and back to the amps. regardless of if you run your own cabling, or run rca's, the audio signal goes through the knob, so the loss will be the same with either method. i don't think the loss will be audible, but loss always occurs on longer runs of cabling.

    the main advantage to the rlc is if your setup leaves a little to be desired in output volume, and you also want a external volume control. the biggest disadvantage is the price.

    both of the options above are 2 of the many options to go from the carpc to the amp, and include a volume control, and/or tone adjustment. neither is perfect for all situations.

    FOUR? Well, I suppose I could step up for the boat.

    1- cockpit mid/high (1 amp, 4 speakers)
    2- cockpit subs (2 amps, 4 speakers)
    3- cuddy mid/high (1 amp, 2 speaksers)
    4- cuddy subs (1 amp 2 speakers)


    actually the cuddy sub amp has a level control, so I guess I'm stuck at 3 until I add the hatch speakers or the stripper pole speakers.

    yes, i run a full active setup, so i have 3 for level control for tweets, mids, and subs, and the 4th is for sub level.
