    Unhappy Newbie question

    I have a question about how do you guys hook up the sound?? I was checking out this guy set-up ( http://www.mp3car.com/cgi-bin/ultima...c&f=2&t=003078 ) with his corvette and I do not understand how the sound was connected.

    I just connect the line-out output from my sound card (vibra 128) directly into my pre-amp/eq and then onto my amplifier...

    Looks like the sound was connnected to the ESX amp (visible just behind the computer in the pics) at that time. Subsequently it was said that the whole setup was going to be connected to the Nakamichi MB75 stereo aux-in. That's my guess, anyways.

    Mine is connected directly into the head unit itself (kind of like an aux-in), through some small modifications I made.

    Having a completely stock sound system (besides the computer) in a car thats 8 years old at this point, I just use a tape adapter, which works well enough.
