    Please HELLLPPP audio question

    Hi guys i am trying to set up my carputer. This is the problem i am having:

    How to install the soundblaster live(internal) to my 4 channel amp while removing the hu. ?

    I have found few diagrams that explain how to do this without replacing the hu. But i want to install a touchscreen where my hu is.

    Has anyone done this in a Honda Accord 98-2000. i would really like to see some pictures.

    thanks

    If you did a you'd see that any sound card has 1/8" phono jacks. What you need to do is get cables that go from 1/8" phono to RCA stereo. You'll also need to extend those RCA lines with RCA barrel connectors(if both ends are male RCA connectors) and additional length of RCA lines for each set. Then you can attach those to your aftermarket 4 ch amp.

    Hi thanks for the reply, I actually did the search before and was unable to find any thing that explained how to hook up without the head unit. My sound card has these ports: its Soundblaster Live!

    Black, Green, Pink, Blue and Yellow

    Now which ones should i be using. Right now i can hear music from the black and green ports. My computer is currently hooked up to a 4+1 speaker system. I need to do the same in my car using its Amp and Sub and Speakers.
    Please let me know how to do this. thanks

    That makes a whole lot of difference. Why didnt you just say so. or it should be illustrated on the card
