CarPC audio wiring choices....
Hey guys, I know there are one million and one threads that almost match this already, But I need some specific advice as I cant continue sifting through any more of the threads getting a semi answer to my predicament..
I do thank you for your time in advance as the help and support from you guys here at mp3car is amazing.!
First up i have my self a fairly basic CarPC getting ready to go in. The important part of it you all need to know is the motherboard: ASRock A75M-ITX
Now to my predicament.
I'm trying to decide how to go about getting the Audio from my CarPC to my Speaker/Sub Amps (5 Amps to be precise, 6 RCA inputs)
What I need to keep in the process is the ability to use Balance and Fade.
Wiring Method 1:
3.5mm jack --> 3.5mm/RCA --> Front Speaker RCA input
3.5mm jack --> 3.5mm/RCA --> Rear Speaker RCA input
3.5mm jack --> 3.5mm/RCA --> Subwoofer RCA input
Wiring Method 2:
Optical Out --> Optical/RCA --> MPQ-5XO or MPQ-7B --> To Amps via RCA
Wiring Method 3:
2 or 3x 3.5mm jack --> 3.5mm/RCA --> so form of power addition to match high level input --> INT-2BX --> To Amps via RCA
So my questions are, Which option is going to be better for me wanting the better of quality out of them and keeping the ability to have Fade and Balance in tact. If the Sub has to be on any specific channel i guess having it on the rear channel would be fine? If it gets its own even better.
