    t has a wire for + (12v),
    ....what's "t"..??
    Are these power wires to your Bose amp? I'm not sure what they mean by "source". Could be your audio source. Just try grounding it to your chassis. If you get noise, you may have to experiment with the best grounding location.

    Sorry about the typo: the t was supposed to be "it". I was refering to the pre-amp eq. the link is here: http://www.caraudiosupply.com/Mercha...ategory_Code=E

    I only paid $30 for it 'cause he was/is selling them and all his other stuff way cheaper on ebay. If you look a few pics down you can see the wiring diagram/explanation. I guess i could try just grounding it to the chassis, im still not 100% sure about power and electronics so i thought i would ask before i messed something up

    Thanks

    Nice little unit. I'm still not sure what they mean by "source". Probably the input audio source (ie your carpc). You may want to experiment with connecting this to the carpc chassis. Again, ground for minimum noise, thru experimentation.

    Source ground is the same ground that your source uses. Just ground it to the same ground as whatever is feeding the audio. The source ground is just there to try to eliminate any ground loop you might get.
    Don't feel bad about the surround sound thing. I got my 10000 when they first came out and still can't get the surround sound to work. I see lot's of people that have "5.1 surround" in their signiture, but nobody has been able to tell me how.

    So do i ground it to the power ground for my computer? I can ground the (-) wire from the EQ to the chassis, correct? Thanks for the advice/input.
    Yeah, i wasn't as interested in 5.1 surround as i was in bypassing this EQ since installing it in my glovebox (and therefore running wires fom the HU to the glove box and back) is going to be a royal PITA, but this will be better anyway. Here is a question:

    I if i wire the RF, RL, RR, LR from the EQ out to the bose amp in with the RF and RR for the fronts and the LF and the LR fir the rears, will the "balance" switch on my winamp playlist work as a fader? (since the right stereo channel will be powering the fronts and the left stereo channel the rears)
    This would be one less thing to have to reach to the glove box for.

    Yes (-) of the EQ to chassis, source ground you can ground to whatever gets the noise level the least in the car (the least or no humm).

    Yes, the balance on winamp would then work as a fader, but, stereophonic music (stuff that moves left to right or right to left) would then move front to back or back to front. Personally I think that would be quite annoying, but if that's what you're looking for. You'd be surprised how accustomed to the standard stereo convention your hearing is, and that when changed how noticible/annoying it can be.

    Good to know about the ground. Thanks for the input on the stereo stuff, i guess i can try it each way and see what happens - its just switching some RCA plugs!

    Thanks.
