Can a car-computer replace a stereo head unit?
Hey, I dont know so much about car stereo's and hope some of the masters here might help me out w/ some info.
I have a seperate amp, and plan to use an ITX motherboard (has 1 pci slot) I was thinking I could get a sound card that would have all the same functions as my stereo head unit, and toss my current infinity head unit.
There has to be a sound card that can:
-have an output to the amp,
-work with all my speakers
Anyone know if this is possible?
I have a 3000GT, and I love the car, but there aint much room inside it... So, I decided to go with a in-dash LCD (10.4 datalux).
(VS having it mounted some place where it might get smacked, or get in the way)
So, if the LCD goes in the dash... where does the 4" high Infinity head unit go?... perhaps I can get rid of it and power my speakers off the computer? If I can get rid of the head unit, I can put the ITX computer where the head unit used to be, behind the LCD.
Am I going to loose audio quality this way?
