  • Basic of a set-up

    Does anyone kinow of a site the outlines the basics of getting a soundcard to play through car speakers?

    Get a head unit (stereo unit) with an aux in (like a CD changer, but not that). Then run a wire from the line out (or speaker out) on your computer to the aux in on teh head unit. Make sure your comp is grounded.

    Need more help?

            You can get aux in adapters for Sony decks with changer controls, but they are expensive ($100 US) and hard to find.

                I currently use Y connectors to split the rca inputs on my amp and run my stereo into one and the speaker output of my carputer into the other (volume is controled with winamp)... I am planning to use a aux input cable down the road that will plug into my cd changer input and then I will use the line out (fixed level) and use the head unit to control volume..
