    People have suggested some cool things but if you want the absolute simplest, just solder a pot onto the live side. Quite simple, dirt cheap, but not as cool.

    That would work for a simple 2 Channel Stereo setup but not for a 5.1 setup.

    My thoughts exactly. Although you'd almost have a makeshift EQ if you hooked up 5 pots to your 5 channels..

    It is almost tempting, but as I posted earlier, if the PC is in the trunk ("the boot"), then this is hardly feasible, as it would entail running 10' of RCA to the front, to the POTs, then 10' back to the rear. This would probably introduce tons of noise and would really fill up your door sills with RCA cable..

    Yes, that is why I choose the simpler method.

    But in the software you can still control each channel's preamp.
