  • my project (car pc): need some advice

    i have a 96 maxima gle with a bose system.

    ok so i'm pretty much a huge noob when it comes to electronics. i'm planning to use the whole m1-atx m1000 via thing that a lot of people use. i have 2 different pictures. they're both of the same thing.

    so is this about right?


    oh and i don't have an amp that all the speakers connect to. i think the amps are located behind each speaker.

                    from looking at the pic everything is right except you cant go straight to the speakers from the computer, you have to run a car amplifier or a head unit (car stereo) to amplify the speakers.

                    if you are going to use just an amp you can go from the computer directly to the amp and from the amp to the speakers and the only volume control you will have is the computer volume.

                    if you are going to use a car stereo you have to buy one with an auxilary input. then you can go from the computer to the inputs on the stereo and then the stereo can amplify the speakers, this way you can control the volume of the sound from the computer with the volume control on the car stereo.

                      oh and hey, since you didnt know that to begin with you should probably just get it installed professionaly or research it for a very, very long time and dont try anything unless you are positive its right cuz its very easy to fry stuff

                        I would include AMP on your diagram. Otherwise it'll work.

                          "i think the amps are located behind each speaker."
                          it seems that my speakers have individual amps attached to them.
                          would it be easier to take out the head unit and attach split rca cables in there once i know which wires are which? or should i tap into the existing speaker wires?

                            Sounds like u have active speakers... then i guess would be better to find a way to connect computer to headunit... u might try searching for that, theres several well documented ways. Take your hu out or google and find out if it has (RCA) AUX-in and if not try to find AUX-in adapter for your hu model.
