    i was thinking of something like running the wires from the dvd player unit to the amps, and also use this as a screen or another screen off the pc. and so on......... anything you guys can think of on how i can pull this off? thanks in advance!!!!!
    if you want to keep the pioneer around, i would really recommend running the pc into the pioneer-- if your deck doesn't have a rear auxilary input, you'll need either a CD-RB10, or CD-RB20(the '10' model is aux input only, and doesn't allow for other p-bus devices, the '20' model allows for other p-bus devices).

    this would work fine as long as you only need 2ch audio from the pc(i don't remember you saying anything about audio processing)..

    search for Fusion Brain and/or airbag setups. i know i have seen a couple setups that use the fusion brain with bags, and have posted the code, and interface screens they used for it, so it shouldn't be too complex to copy..

    so ur saying from the pc sound card to the aux in on the radio and from the radio to the amps via radio wires like the speaker wires right?

    Nice to see another S-Series around. I'll be looking forward to this project. I'm running my pc audio through my Pioneer 6000UB, however I got lucky and it has both a regular 3.5 female port on the back and I also bought the aux plug, but mine terminates into a 3.5 male plug. However, if you need some length this probably won't work for you and one of the 2 soundman posted would be better since you can utilize RCAs with those.

    ^ exactly. some decks have a built-in aux input that just needs to be enabled (in the same menu you change the time in), other units require a adapter..

    if you don't need any other p-bus devices, the cd-rb10 is all you need, but there are tons of cheaper non-pioneer-brand options out there that will work just as good. i always prefer to use ones with rca connections because it is the easiest to adapt any other cable to..

    now gents i got a little question. ok heres the deal, i have a double din player from pioneer. now im putting this on my custom center console im making. now with my setup im running the pc sound thru a sound card to amps. ok got tht piece set! , now the deal is i want to maybe put my dvd player inline incase my pc goes down i still have some bump going. now i have an idea on how to do it, but i want to eliminate any unwanted noise if there is any. or basically do it the right way!

    ********************oh and for leo, what size converter your running? and do u manually tunr it on and off? or how you work it?*******************
    I use a 400W inverter. It seems to provide all the power that is needed. I use a momentary SPST push button recessed in the dash to turn the inverter on. The inverter is switched off by the PC when the PC powers off.
