  • 5.1 in car

    How are you guys hooking up your 5.1? What are you using for a center speaker? I cant get good audio out of my Extigy.

    How are you getting sound from your computer to your speakers? FM Modulator, RCAs to Amp?
    Audio Rockford Fosgate: 900 Watt 4-channel amp, 501bd Mono amp
    Computer AMD 2400+ XP, 1 GB DDR RAM, Orbit Micro 250W DC-DC PSU

    Head units are for cheaters!

      not to highjack the thread, but with rcas to an amp, how do you avoid the major poppage of the speakers when everything powers up (no head unit)

          okay this is the breakdown to the original question.

          This is how i will setup my sound.

          I have a Via EPIA m10000 and I will use the Coax digital output into a Coax to Optical Digital Converter to a Surround sound Digital Signal Processor's optical IN (alpine pxa-H510) then the six channel analog will go to an amplifier (one 5 channel amp for all of the speakers and one mono amp for the woofer)

          The 5 channel amp will amplify all speakers including the center chanel and i will have a seperate amp for the woofer.

                      5.1 sucks in my car right now. I cannot get decent quality out of the extigy in 5.1 mode. I need to just switch to 2 ch. again.

                        You dont NEED 5.1 but it it would certainly be cool. If I had even more extra cash laying around I might even do it.

                            I plan to use the Clarion srk5 for a center speaker. Requires 1/2 Din space.

                              A few years ago sherwood came out with a dts 5.1 processor with a matching amp. Anyway the processor had two digital and one analog input. It didnt do so well and you could have picked them up dirt cheap. Cant find them anymore though. I have the set collecting dust in my closet. I got the cd player, processor, and 6 chanel amp for less than 200. lol.
