    yeah, either that, or if you want to be able to use the radio independantly of the pc at times, the logical thing to do is to drop the factory head down to line level, then feed that into the amp as well, so the whole system is from the one amp, the switching is just done before the amp, input a or input b,... no problems..

    i guess i read his post wrong...woops.. anyways. I would modify your approach to how we described. switch before the amp, not after

    Your choices are:
    1) Get rid of the amplifier and get an Aux In Adapter for your head unit.
    2) Get rid of the head unit and just use the amplifier
    3) Hook up the head unit(line out) and computer (line out) to the amplifier with an AV switch
    4) Get an Aux In Adapter for your head unit. Then hook up computer->headunit->amplifier
    5) Leave the head unit hooked up the front speakers, and use the computer and amplifier with the rear speakers (lol..just kidding)

    Peace.

    I had to reread it a few times to make sure I wasn't going nuts! I just wanted to keep him from having smoke and flames come out of stuff when he hooked it up.
