You need an amp, and you run the computer to that and use the software volume control.

Normally, RCA's go from your head unit to the amp, then speaker wire to the speakers. Now, you want to run RCA's from your sound card in your computer out to the amp instead.
Regarding wires, what other wires to the HU are you talking about? The power and remote wires? You can just ignore them, cap them or tape them up to prevent shorting.
Good luck, and have fun.
