    Freelander audio hookup

    I have a 2004 Freelander with the stock audio sytem. I was wondering if there was a way to remove the old head (CD and radio). I know there is no Auxillary connection on the head, so I am guessing I would need to remove the head. Then, I would want to connect my car computer to that. Would it be to amp, if I could find it? Would I be able to do this?

    If this would work, might I be able to add a splitter, so that I could keep my existing head and then keep my carputer screen in the glove compartment?

    In addition to this, would it be possible to make the splitter in to a manual switch? Or even create a hookup to the carputer that would be controlled by software?

    if you want a "splitter" go to radio shack and as them for an RCA switch. They might not have one that supports 4 channels, so you could try an equalizer, ask a sound shop about that.

    As far as an amp goes, get a fairly simple four channel amplifier to power your speakers. It will take 4 RCAs in, and you'll be set!
