    what do you use for equalizer/volume settings, etc.?

    i will be setting up my carputer in a month or so. anway, I was wondering where most people change their volume and equalizer settings. for instance, i will have the sound out on the pc connected to the aux in, on the back of my kenwood head unit. so should i change the volume and equalizer settings in winamp itself when i'm playing mp3s, or should i adjust the volume and eq curve on my head unit, like if i was listening to the radio or a cd or something? if i adjust the volume and eq on my head unit, then what should i keep the settings at in winamp, and if i adjust with winamp, what should i keep the volume and eq at on my head unit.
    thanks much for the help
    ps - is there any way to get the 5.1 surround sound, but still connect to the aux in on the back of my deck? i would like the surround sound, but seems like it would be a hassle. currently my head unit powers my rear speaks, a 4 channel amp powers my front components, and a mono amp to my subs. thanks again

    I like winamp 5's built in equaliser myself, the only downside is that there it takes a second or so for the EQ to change after you fiddle with it.

    but do you have a deck/head unit, other than the computer? if so, what volume do you keep that at. for instance, if i use the volume control in media car, what volume should i set on my head unit. because the sound is actually send through the aux input on the back of the deck.

    I use a Clarion line driver/EQ instead of a Head unit. Sounds card goes directly to that and then sends rca's to the amps. Has separate sub volume, as well as low, mid, mid high, and high. Works great

    See Pic of the EQ here
