    audio control matrix will jack up the pre out voltage to 9.5v rms, but this is more than most amps will take, i have mine set at 7v, and it was like night and day when i installed it. Its only like $150 for 6 channels. Awesome piece of hardware.

    Worked fine.
    Can you explain why you would hook up your video composite to your head unit? Does your HU have a vid screen that accepts input?

    I think you misunderstood..

    I have the same setup as Megatron, where my xbox connects to AUX in on the deck then to the amp.

    What i am saying is that it will sound horrible and you will ahve no volume control without something between the amp and the xbox (IE. EQ, deck or something)

    Headunits Speaker Splits PLZ HELP!!!

    can anyone help?? I have a Pioneer DEH-P7000UB. being a student i cudn't afford to buy a sub and amp to make my car pump... therefore i took some old household speakers from my old hi-fi system and wired them up to my car... splitting the rear speakers with the hi-fi speakers ideally it sounds a lot better and does kick... however a mate of mine told me if i left it like this sooner or later it will fry the headunit... is this true? and what are alternatives?? plzzzzzzz HELP!

    Home speakers are usually 8 ohm. Car speakers are usually 4 ohm. By wiring them up in parallel, you are presenting a load of about 2.67 ohms to your headunit. Most headunits aren't rated to go lower than 4 ohms. Yes you could damage your headunit if you leave it this way.

    Plus I doubt that the 22 watts RMS per channel that your HU is putting out is going to make your car "kick". Search ebay, craigslist, and local pawn shops for a decent amp. And remember, when shopping amps, compare RMS wattage ratings, not peak ratings, which are mostly meaningless.

    If you want cheap, by far the best way to get great sound in your ride is to follow in the footsteps of this guy:

    1 - Threadjacking is bad. (Threadjacking is tacking onto an existing thread with nothing useful or straying off the original thread topic.)

    2 - Threadjacking a four year old thread willg et you ridiculed mercilessly.

    3 - This query really belongs in the Car Audio subforum.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    See DP, now don't you feel all helpless without your super powers?

    In days gone by you would just have split the thread, and given rizzla0 a clip round the ear (AKA Infraction) and gone and poured another coffee.
