    What outputs do I use from the soundcard for that setup?

    What is the "sub" channel?

    And are you saying the dash speakers should be the "rear" channel/output from the soundcard?

    I'm really having difficulties getting this to work... right now I'm on 2 speakers.. Front channel, door speakers.. I guess the other adapters I got from r-shack don't work right or something... I was splitting to mono and then splitting to dual rca's from that.

    Right now, I just want all my speakers to work.. heh...

    On the soundcard (if its 5.1) you will have : Rear Out , Front Out, Center/Sub Out (or something that looks like that).

    So to get the sub channel, you get one of those 1/8" stereo phono plugs to double rca, and check both rcas for sub, connect that to the amp.(to check it, plug it to a speaker and change the volume of the sub chan in your os).

    Has for saying to use the rear output , I think you can make the computer output 2.1 in 5.1 (by using the same sounds for front and back).

    Sorry to have left such a vague message... I was at my wits end with the audio last night...

    After a short conversation with a friend online today.. and another one with a co-worker... I figured out my problems.. it was a variety of things... first, somehow my sub amp wasn't being powered properly... cable snafu.. then I realized that I had a mix of mono and stereo adapters in there... Thanks radioshack for having things on the wrong shelf... but I suppose it's my fault for not reading the labels closely or looking at each end to verify it was what I needed.

    A short trip back to r-shack and I have all the proper adapters... It's setup how Moon initially depicted it... software set to 5.1 with no rear channel.. the fronts are the doors and the center is the center and sub is the sub... it's all happy go lucky now.. just have to tweak the eq and amps to my liking...
