  • Multiple cars playing music in tandem?

    How do people do this? I was curious how people 'link' their car sound systems together so that they play in tandem with each other?

    On the boat I use an FM transmitter that I bought on ebay out of China, it has a little more power than an FM modulator

      Well the only method other than FM would be over the internet. Anything distance dependent would of course depend on how far away both vehicles are (FM, bluetooth, RF, etc.). If both cars had a computer inside and were connected to interent (such as via 3G) then they could just stream music from the same source. There are more than a few ways of how to deal with the specifics after that, depending on what you are trying to do.

        Problem with multiple streams is they are rarely in sync. FM transmitter with a small RF Amp (10-50W) is best option. Those chinese transmitters are less than 1W. A CB radio shop is probably the best source for the Amp or do some research on "Pirate Radio" setups.

          An alternative to the FM transmitter may be Squeezebox. You don't actually need the box...just computers with the software installed, and a local network (I don't think it works via 3G). I know it can also be controlled by an Android or iOS device, but I forget if it can play to one.
