    Xbox hookup

    The goal is to have my xbox as my car pc. I have altered my xbox so i could use apps and other things. Its essentially a computer. (Please don't ask how) I want to use just a screen and not a head unit. The xbox has rca jacks out so how would I connect my orriginal speakers using the rca jack. Is there some kind of converter or somthing so i don't have to buy an expensive radio thats fugly anyway.

    It's called an amplifier.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    there is a audio converter that u hook up to the speaker leads going to any speaker and it converts the signal into a rca jack so u can use rca wires to hook up to a amplifier. If you are talking about hooking the x-box up to the radio so it plays audio to the radio then you need a rf modulator that hooks up to rca jacks. check radio shack.

    so i can get rca jacks and connect them to the end of the wire. How many outputs does an amp normally have. 6 7 ?

    a amplifier usually has inputs only, some amplifiers will have a output to connect to another amplifier.

    OK, I think I get what you are asking. You want to take out your head unit entirely, correct? Once you take your head unit out, you have the factory harness that used to plug into your head unit. What you need to do is go to www.crutchfield.com. Once you are there, you can put in your make, model, and year of your car. It will tell you all of the speakers and head units that fit in your car, as well as a factory wiring harness. Obvisouly all you want is the wiring harness. Once you have it, you will have to buy yourself a four channel amplifier, assuming your car has four speakers (two up front, two in back). Using the wiring diagrams from the amp and the wiring harness, you should be able to hook the amp to the harness you bought, and then plug the RCAs from your xbox into the amp. I hope this helps...
