    Do I have this right?

    I have a panasonic head unit and I will be getting a touchscreen.

    I alos have an amp for my subs and an amp for my 4 speakers.

    So, if I have a computer, I just jack the sound card from the PC into an input into the headunit, and whatever I do on the PC, will play through the
    speakers?

    Sound right?

    so will a good sound card affect this?

    If your Aux port on your H/U supports an optical connection use it.

    Optical Port (has to be on both PC and Head-Unit):


    Must be used with an optical cable:
