    PC > AMP

    Howdy all,

    I'm looking at setting up a CarPC using one of these, however I was wondering if it is possible to send the audio straight from the back of the PC to the AMP without an equalizer?

    Yes, of course.
    Old Systems retired due to new car
    New system at design/prototype stage on BeagleBoard.

    I got confused. I thought when he said "PC > Amp" he meant "PC is greater than Amp". I was assuming that we where talking footprint here.

    Sorry could not resist.

    Anyway. Yes, you will have no problem hooking your PC to your amps directly if all your speakers are powered your amps. Some factory installs power the front speakers off the dash unit, and a seperate amp for the back. You might also want to check the voltage expectation on the audio inputs of your amps. Some amps are hooked on to an amplified signal. In this case you migh need a pre-amp.
