    newb on sound quality.

    hi there. just a newb sound question. anyway. if I run a external sound card to the aux port of my head unit set to 5.1. can the headunit still send the signal to the appropriate speaker? I dont know if this is a mega dumb question.

    The headunit would never stop sending audio output to the speakers. That's its function.
    If you run a device (PC, iPod, portable CD player, etc.) to the AUX of your headunit, you just have one more audio source to choose on the headunit.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Just to make sure, are you putting a power supply between the "Battery" and "CPU" ???

    Looks good, except for whatever dribbled onto your diagram below the sound card.
