    Noob to car pcs, looking for advice on the wiring side of things! :D

    hi all. Im a computer veteran so that side of things isnt so much a problem, the audo wiring however is!

    here is my plan..

    Car: 2003 VW Golf R32,

    7" screen in dash, with 10" mounted in the glove compartment.
    med-high spec car pc, all the normal things you would expect, gps reciever, wireless etc etc. and a 10" sub and amp in the boot.

    My question now is, as im a car audio noob. how do i go about wiring it all into the speakers etc whilst integrating the new sub/amp. im aware the golf already has an amp but im guessing the connections would be different?

    first thoughts make me think that it goes carpc > amp > speakers. is that right?

    ive looked and am still looking through the site but if anyone has any tips before i dive in the deep end its appreciated

    thanks

    You're correct, so long as you intend to go without a heandunit.

    thanks
    My tip:
    Start reading in the FAQ Emporium, if you haven't already.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
