  • 3.5to RCA

    I know this is going to seem like a stupid question, but do you think hooking a carpc up to an amp using a 3.5mm (PC) to RCA L/R (AMP) splitter cable would provide some good audio through the car. Just experimenting.

    3.5 to 2 RCA typically are not shielded cables. Therefore the answer to your question is:

    Yes: you will have okay audio if it's a short cable and there's nothing nearby to introduce noise.
    No: bad audio if the cable is too long and there are noisy cables or equipment nearby.

        you can get small solid jack to RCA adapters and then use RCA cables or you can do what i do and use a soundcard with RCA out. personally i hate jack plugs as they never seem to give good results.
