Audio system planning, need help!
I am trying to help a friend figure out what needs to be done for connecting his audio system together, and we are both not exactly audio system experts, so I could use some help figuring things out for his car.
He has a small 2 door car, with 2 speakers in the dash, and 1 speaker in each door. He has a subwoofer in the trunk. He has a 4 channel amp, and a mono amp.
He has a carputer with and audiotrak prodigy sound card, capable of up to 7.1 channel sound.
Here is what I came up with:
Run the sound on the pc in 5.1 channel mode, and ignore the rear channels.
Connect a 3.5mm->rca splitter to the front channel output on the pc, and connect to channel 1 & 2 on the 4 channel amp.
Connect a 3.5mm-rca splitter to the center+sub output on the pc; connect the left side (center output) to an rca Y cable and run to channels 3 and 4 on the 4 channel amp; connect the right side (sub output) with a single rca cable and run to the mono amp.
Wire the left/right speakers to channels 1/2 on the 4 channel amp, and the dash speakers to channels 3/4 on the 4 channel amp, and the sub to the mono amp.
Im attaching a rough diagram to this post to illustrate.
I really dont know if my proposed layout is right, so I would really appreciate any knowledgable feedback you audio guys can give me.
