    Here is the info about how i done it:

    -The soud from computer goes to a cd player with AUX-in, so I got 3 AUX kables to my amps (F/R/SUb) the soud is great even withoud the amps as.
    The cd player got inbuild apm at 4x35 RMS so I got inuff power for the soud without apm, but it is really cool to use sub in the car when you are playin matrix and so on.... Good luck with your project.. I will be posting my picture here as soon I get my new Shuttle xpc SN41G2.

    I'm not sure how possible it is, but since I have an old head unit that I have already made pull-out (full unit, not just face-off) I wanted to just link it up using Aux in. Then I remembered it didnt have an aux-in so I'm going to have to hack straight into my amp circuits. Then I did the stupid thing and dropped the unit on its face. I smashed the LCD screen and disabled all of the front buttons, but it still plays tapes OK. So now my plan is to pull out the full front of the system as best I can, compress the electronics into the rear of the case and work in my 4x20 LCD and a mini keypad. Then I'll add another socket for removable connections at the back - et voila, full in car system integrated into the head unit.

    they is another way to do this they is a thing called a sound switch this would work buy insted of a mic u would jump the spekear out on the sound card it would detect they is sound turn the realy on and amp come on but this might be a pain as when they is no sound ur amp would turn off so if u were listerning to directions ur amp would be on and off al the time

    I think 3 years, 10 months qualifies as nearly four years.
