I am preparing the specs for my first carputer, and I have some doubts with the audio.
- Do I need an amplifier for the line out of the computer (the classical green jack)? What would happen if i connected that directly to the car speakers?? Would not sound? May I damage something? In case an amplifier is need how much power should it have?
- Car radios I have seen can control 4 speakers in a car separately, so you can take the sound to the front, to the back, and the classical balance left right. If I use only the stereo output of the I will only have the left-right balance, not the rear-front one, I think.... Does any of you use some 4.1 ... 6.1 configuration in the car?? Even more, does it make sense to use it, since it is designed for Home Theatre?
yes you need an amplifier, the line out is not nearly powerful enogh to run speakers
second question, search, LOTS of people use variations on that
