  • need help, no Car radio....

    ok well i had my carpc in my old G20 for a while, & a HUGE tree jumped out in front of me 1 night , long story short, the 2002 G20 is no more.

    Well now i have a 1996 G20, i wanna put my system into it. Only problem now, is my radio died., is it possible to get sound without a car radio? i have 2 laptops that i can use as a carpc, the Dell (i used in my 2002, or this new even smaller Asus laptop.) im not a big audio phile guy, i could care less how good or loud it sounded, as long as it was clear, & worked. The old way i did it in my other car was......i had a HU, & a FM modulator, & the laptop, the laptop would feed the signal to the fm modulator threw a head phone jack to headphne to RCA adapter. then i would put the radio on like 89.1. The FM modulator worked surprisingly well, (i guess cuz your car antenna gets pluged into it & then its antenna get plugged into the radio)

    well now since i dont have a radio (nor do i want one, since im limited on space, i have 3 single dins, 1 with a dead radion, 1 for the climate controlsm, & a empty slot) Im going to mount my &" lilli in there, so removing the radio is somthing i was plannig on dooing any way. But how can i get sound to the speakers?

    Nicely worded! That one made me laugh out loud

    Anyway since Im obligated to reply now, there are USB FM tuners and theres a Visteon unit and a Directed unit that give you HD radio with your stock antenna right into your computer or amp, and then that gets played to your speakers. Look em up
