  • Laptop connecting to Creative live external

    Hey people

    I recently got a Creative Live 24bit external soundcard. I have no idea which should i connect to my laptop and my HU. I am driving a Acura TSX
    I got this installed in my car SNHOND3
    Also, my laptop only has a headphone jack for audio output.

    How should i connect 3 components together? thanks!

    The external card should connect to your laptop via USB. The audio output from the card then would connect to the AUX input of the head unit

        front speaker.
        SPDIF is optical.
        Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
        How about the Wiki?



        Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

          front speaker to>the aux in. Make sure that cable runs away from any power wires etc. how are you planning on wiring your extigy(im guessing) up? I had alot of problems with mine at first, but then got them figured
