  • Sound card

    I have to hook my computer up to a stock amp in my pathfinder. I know i could get one of those line converters. Not sure how good they are. Instead should i look for a sound card that has line levels out??
    Thanks

    What are you trying to achieve? Most sound cards have a line level out, or at least some analog out.

    The question is, what inputs does your amp have?

        you will need to make sure that the amp takes line level inputs, and not speaker level inputs-- every car and bose amp can be different.

          Yeah what inputs does that stock amp have? If you dont know what they are can you take a picture of what you're working with ?

            Do not use a LOC. I had one for my 04 maxima taped into my speaker lines and I was not happy with the sound at all. I ended up just getting the signal from my computer so I dont use it anymore but it sucked!
