    Question Confused About This

    Ok, I am confused about a couple things. I am going to sell my eclipse deck so that i can use that money to get a touchscreen and computer. I hvae high quality components in front and back, and two 12 L7' solobaric subs. I have an amp running all the mids and highs. How will I run the mids and highs without a deck? Will there be pre-outs on the touchscreen? will there be preouts on the computer that i run to the amp to power the mids and highs? my deck has a 5v pre-out, so what would compare to that in the carputer world?
    Thanks

    I don't know what voltage the ouput on your computer sound is capable of, but you can always use a pre-amp too. Mine just uses an 1/8" stereo headphone to two RCA adapter.

    The volume levels you get out of a computer will be line level, which should be about the same as the RCA outs on your Head Unit.

    Don't get rid of your head unit as long as it has AUX in's!!!!!

    If it doesn't have auxilary in's, then is it a Sony with CD changer inputs? If so, you can use a Sony XA-300 to interface your PC to your stereo.

    If no to all of the above, go buy a head unit with AUX in's. Why? Because it's a lot easier to manipulate your car stereo's volume knob that to use a touchscreen or a remote control. Plus with a decent head unit, you won't have to worry about amps and crossovers and all that stuff.
    So far:
    M10000 Nehemiah, 1Gb RAM, Opus 90w PS, Buffalo Tech WLI2-USB2-G54, 160 Gb HDD, GlobalSat BU-353 GPS, iGuidance, Zippy EL-610, Panasonic CW8123B Slim Slot CDRW/DVD, 10" Lilliput, Sony XA-300, Sony CDX-MP30 Head, OBD-II
