EPIA M9000 connection to car amp
I want to connect my EPIA M9000 to a four channel amp in the car. One installer I talked to questioned whether the computer can output a high enough voltage to the amp through the Line Out. He said the amp should get about 0.5 to 3 volts in. I guess if the input to the amp is not high enough, the amp will be amplifying a lot of noise in addition to the signal. He said I might need a pre-amp. When I connect the computer to my home stereo system, it sounds just fine.
3 questions -
Does anyone know the voltage of the Line Out?
Do you think I need a pre-amp?
Is anyone connecting an EPIA Line Out to a car amp successfully?
The Voltage is not enough for a good signal. Get a signal booster. And don't use the onboard sound...it sucks. It totaly lacks in mid and lows. I have the M-9000 and change my sound card for this exact reason...
