    which sound card to run 2 amps

    i have my sound system set up at the moment, but would like advice on which sound card to go for to split the signal to send one set to the sub amp and one set to another amp for my components, i was planning on just using a 3.5mm splitter but i thought that if i try and control the subs from the head unit i would add more bass to everything, so how to i wire it up properly?!

    cheers

    and befor any1 says i did but did not find anything relevant

    so put a 5.1 sound card in, then use a 3.5mm cable to a rca lead end?and then use the sub/centre speaker slot for the sub?

    Get an audiocontrol three.1 line driver & equaliser. Just over $100 on Ebay for a used one. An *awesome* piece of audio equipment! Read up on it and you'll be convinced...

    Use front output for front speakers and center/sub for sub... You have to figure out the wires that are only for the sub ("left" or "right")...
