    Question Car Equalizer / Hardware Volume controls

    I am looking for a way to control the volume of my system. I don't want to use the software buttons and I want it all to be hardware. So I was thinkin of getting a equalizer or a pre-amp that mounts in the back and has a remote volume control in the front that I could mold in.

    I am looking to controll 4 channels of speakers and 1 more for the subs.


    Does anything come to mind ?


    thanks

    Watch here :

    You can buy a DQS or DQXS with the DDC remote.
    Surely it won't be cheap,but very expensive.

    Yup, I bought this:

    I haven't installed it yet but my friend said it will work great for controlling the sound in my car. You can switch between two sources of sound too. I am gonna hook my computer and PS2 into this thing.

    Get something like a Griffin Powermate and configure that to control volume.
    You can also hack apart a mouse with a scrollwheel, and use that as volume control, as well.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I want a normal knob nothing with lights and I think its too big. Plus the volume knob that I have I want it to be hardware controlled and not through software incase the computer locks up and the sound goes crazy. A software knob wouldn't work in this case.

    That is only 2 channel but I like the concept I am rethinking how I want to do my mold maybe I can fit a similar unit in my dash.I need Input for Front / Rears mainly my amps have a pass-through for the sub so I could just use that. If you look at my car, I did a software volume control to hold me over for now but I would rather have hardware.

    See the sixth item from the top. It's a RCA level volume knob. Should work great in your application.
