    help with set up

    I am going to be doing a tablet install but i want to retain my Sirius radio in my car without running it off the tablet because that wont be possible. I just need help finding a way that i can control the volume on both the tablet and sirius radio. My amp dosent have a volume remote. Is there some device that i can plug both the tablet and sirius in to to a knob or button for volume control then send that signal to the amp?

    my other idea was since my device will run jelly bean if i were to use a usb sound card and have my sirius in the mic and run it through the tablet and have all my audio come out the ouput on the sound card. but if i were to do that i need an app that will just play what ever my mic input is seeing. then all my audio control can be done through the android tablet

    This unit may do the trick. It has master volume, and an aux input. It also has Front, Rear, and Sub out. I will caution you however, that I purchased one, and found that the Sub out is not exactly what I call Sub out. The Equalizer adjustments actually Cuts/Boosts the Sub out. So if you are looking for this to cut the Bass going to your Front/Rear speakers, and allow the low frequencies out to power a Sub, you will be disappointed as I was. As long as you are not looking for true sub out, I'd say it's a good unit.

    The Clarion crossover MCD360 is what I ended up with. It's got the main features I needed. Two channel input, and either 2, 4, or 6 channel out (Front, Rear, Sub), with crossover adjustment and level adjust for each pair, with remote Sub level. But it has no master volume and no aux in, deal breakers for you, it sounds like.

    Yeah, you could buy both...LOL. Leave the EQ flat, and use the crossover as intended. Just use the EQ for the aux-in and the volume. But it's cumbersome, and probably $130 for the pair. I'm sure there are other ways.
