    How will I power my doorcard speakers with no head unit?

    Hey guys I really need your help.
    Im putting the complete are Pc in the Focus this weekend but Im facing a bit of trouble. Im going to be removing the Head Unit completely out of the car as My touchscreen for the Pc is mounted in the center dash so their isnt really any space for it. The problem I then have is how do I power my front and rear door card speakers, as they would usually be powerd from the head unit. My subs and 6 x 9's will be fine obviousy as I can use the output from my sound card and the amps will power them for me but Im struggling to find a way around this problem.
    Help!?!?!

    Put it under a seat.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
