    Stereo not surround sound

    Im looking to build a carputer. The thing is I do not wont surround sound. I like the simplicity of a normal car stereo (speaker position), for the cd's I'll be listening to. I know that 7.1 is the way to go for movies. But I am all about bass. Where surround sound is more about vocals. Is there a good pci based sound card i could get for my aplacation

    I'm quite happy with my SoundBlaster Audigy I
    didn't buy it specifically for my carputer, it was just a spare part left over from an old computer.
    It has the options for 5.1 sound 4 channel sound and 2 channel stereo.
    I think that just about any soundcard will work fine for you really if it's like the Audigy and can be changed to suit your taste.

    Just because a sound cars says 7.1 doesn't mean it's always putting out surround sound.

    I think you're over thinking this. K.I.S.S. and keep going.
