    Incorporating Car PC with speakers without headunit?

    I have a 2010 legacy I am not impressed with the factory nav and would like to replace it with a car pc.

    But if I have no where to add an aftermarket headunit.

    How can I get the audio from the computer to the speakers?

    Any options?

    you could do qaxl referred to by installing a 4 channel car amp, or you'd rather use a aftermarket head unit it looks like you could put it where the current controls are for your navi-under the screen.
    you'll definately have to do some bezel modification either route you go-and you'll want to replace the nav screen with a standard usb touch screen.
    i personally would mount the pc (a mini itx mobo) in the area under the screen and incorporate a dvd drive into, make a new face to cover the pc with a slot for the drive and a couple buttons and knobs to help control it.

    I don't think whatever I make to replace what I remove from the center stack will look at all good enough.

    I'm going to have to hide the computer.

    I am concerned about how i'm going to control the volume I won't be able to integrate the stock knobs.

    I have seen USB volume knobs they are a little big tho.

    I'm going to need a 8" Touchscreen USB.
