couple general Audio/video quality questions
hey there, theres no official introduction sub forum so ill say hi here :) been roaming around this forum for the past few weeks and decided it was time to register and start asking questions which i couldnt answer through looking or search. Drive a 01 Tiburon with an older clarion deck that came with the car when i bought it, has 300w 3way 6x9's and 230w 3way 6 1/2's Pioneer speakers powered by a Clarion 4 channel amp and a 12" Infinity sub powered by a Ultimate T3 amp.
origionally i was planning to go with a new HU, the Premier DEH-P980BT, its a brand of Pioneer but the whole car pc sorta caught my attention.
i have a few questions which i couldnt find the answer to on the site and if i did it was probably abunch of really technical names and # which i didnt understand anyways probably, i have a friend whos builds computers helping out with this once i get to the whole assembly part
alright, first off, sound quality wise, i understand that a dolby 5.1 sound car probably matches the sound quality of a good deck but car audio wise im used to have 3 sets of rca outs, front/rear/sub, now if the sound card puts out 3.5m jacks, wouldnt the signal get abit distorted by the time it reaches the amps, since it has to convert from 3.5m to rca and then split? im probably confusing myself here more then anything
second off, a car pc is pretty much a pc, but how come all the boot screens and programs for it run in about 250 colors if a pc can handle millions and screens i've looked at, vga and lcd support over a million dots. personally with the car pc screen im looking for a nice flashy background, hard to explain but when you look at a nav screen off of a nav system it usually is pretty interactive with everything, now would this be possible to recreate in flash or something else or am i stuck with lower color static backgrounds and all, hope that makes sense
and three, is there anyway to actually integrate bluetooth into the carpc so i can use my cellphone and all but its sorta intergrated into the pc so it would use the car speakers and a external mic, sorta found the answer to this in the wirless com. section but its usually something along the lines of something else
thanks alot for any help and guidance in this
