I've been searching around and reading threads all morning but I can't find ANYTHING on just a basic audio setup, without any amps or expensive Audigy cards, and without any subwoofers or 7.1. Is it possible to just hook up the onboard audio to the speakers without any intermediaries? I'm in a 96 Camry so I've got two 6x9's and two 5 1/4's.
Any help would be great!
Hrm.. I didn't want to hear that but thanks for the quick and succinct response. And I appreciate the link
What dude said is bs. It sounds as if you aren't looking for high quality sound here especially if you're going with stock speakers. You can run a 1/8 jack to rca cable adapter out of the computer connect that to an fm modulater and connect that to your radio. Of course to do this you have to keep your head unit.

Of course if jonoc didn't phrase his question correctly, that's a different thing.. but that's not the fault of the people who attempted to answer his question.
I'm not looking for high quality right now. My first priority is to get the computer working in the car, then if I am not satasfied with the audio, I can add an amp. My current headunit is an Eclipse 5440 and yes, I still have stock speakers. You're saying that if I keep the headunit then I don't have to buy an amp?
Sorry for the dumb question. I didn't mention that I know NOTHING about car audio.
The question wasn't dumb just the way you phrased it. You made it seem as if you didn't want to go through your head unit or amp. Anyways if you follow my instuctions in regards to the fm modulater you can go without the amp. If you like the sound you get out of your speakers now chances are you will not need to upgrade as you'll have the amplification of your on board card as well as the head units abilities for manipulating the sound. If you need more info on fm modulaters post up, pm me or do a because there's already plenty of discussions on it.Originally Posted by jonoc
Sorry if my response sounded harsh. Annoying day at work.
