Low volume coming from speakers.
Ok, my stock headunit has no inputs besides an input (harness connector) for a cd changer. So I had to buy a thing called a PIE interface. Basically I hook the PIE interface into the back of my HU and then use a Y cable to turn the 2 RCA inputs on the PIE into a single input that computers use and then hook my computer to that.
So anyway, when I play music thru my carputer, the volume is very low. Usually when Im playing my cd or radio i have the volume at 13 for a nice level.
When I play my carputer audio, i need to crank it up to like 27.
NOW i know, i have searched. And what I came up with is people who CANT even hear the audio and people tell them they need an amo. Now would that be the same for me even though I can HEAR the audio, I just need to turn the volume up a lot. I thought maybe my way of getting the audio into the HU was cuasing the drop in volume.
Do you guys think an amp would solve my problem too? And if so, what size should i get?
PS, im using the built in soundcard on my Via 800 Mobo. Could that be the culprit?
