    Hooking Up Your PC Sound To Your Car Speakers

    Do Car Decks have a Audio In port so you can hook your PC sound to your car audio speakers through your deck?


    Kinda like this...
    PC -- DECK -- Speakers


    Is that how it works? Or do you have to get special adapters?

    Its called an AUX-IN, some Head Units have it some don't, some need special adapters. What Head Unit are we talking about here?

    For those you may want to do a search, or at least be more specific, is it Alpine or Pioneer and also model numbers would be nice. Most likely they will need a fairly cheap adapter, or if you are into DIY you can find plans on making one.

    Either way post a model number of your HU and we'll see what you need.

    I haven't decided on which one I wanted yet, but Pioneer sells an adapter with Audio In, and Alpine decks seem to have it already in. I don't want to sound like too much of a noob, but does HU stand for head unit?
