    some revised newbie questions

    okay so for now i think i've decided on leaving my cd changer and radio and just moving them over to the glovebox so i can still have music if i'm using gps or just in the car for a few minutes and dont wanna boot up the computer for a run to the store or something. so what do i need to have to be able to switch the cars speakers and sub from the stereo head unit to the computer?

    ummm...my HU is in the glovebox, and I use it as a preamp for my computer (computer is connected to Auxillery Input)

    The best thing to do would be to sacrifice your cd changer and use that for an input. Next best, i guess...would be an amplifier with a giant relay block that switches all 8 wires...that'd probably be about $100 + amplifier. It would be very clunky and inelegant, but it would work. Or you could go with an FM modulator but they sound like *** in a tin can, as someone rightly put it.

    I'd say the most realistic option would be ditch the changer.
