    Installing speakers to carputer

    Hey everyone, i have a question that might be something simple for some of you but as stated in my previous posts im a knuckle head. i have a 2002 3.5L v6 Altima 5spd (if it maters) i was woundering when i have my touchscreen monitor and everything connected to the carputer how can i install my factory wire harness for the speakers with the built in AMP to the computer? Can anyone please give me full details and pretty much baby sit me on this? Thx alot i would REALLY apreciate that.

    I just found this, that gave me a general idea. Take a look at my diagram, any suggestions?
    I dont know if im stupid or if im just missing something, but how would i be able to connect my amp to my speakers. Only thing i can come up with is connecting it to my 12" AudioBahn sub using that same format on that Diagram.

    Your amp receives audio from the current headunit. Chances are it's not using RCA's like aftermarket amplifiers/headunits, but a proprietary wiring harness. Your concern shouldn't be connecting the amp to the speakers, since that part is already done.
    Your concern should be getting the audio signal fromt eh PC to the amp. To pull this off, there are two alternatives:
    1) Determine the pinout of the existing witing harness that delivers audio signal to the amp and create your own cable to convert RCA L/R to the factory amp's harness
    or...
    2) Locate a pre-made one adapter, if one exists.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Thats my problem, im removing my headunit to put my indash touch screen. Also im running the AMP with the stock radio which it has no RCA outputs so i have to put a RCA mudulelator or w/e its called it has a few names i think but i cant think of it right now.

    You didn't understand a word I said.

    There's a wiring harness that delivers audio to the amplifier from the headunit. One end plugs into headunit. Other end plugs into the stock amp.
    Figure out what wires in that harness are delivering the line-level audio to the amp. If you goole, you can probably find a schematic. The next step is to shop the heanunit connector, wire up RCA connectors to the appropriate wires.

    The sound card will then run from the speaker jack through a 1/8" to RCA adapter and then into the RCAs you splice onto your cable. The other end plugs into your stock amplifier.

    Considering it's difficult for you to comprehend this concept, I highly suggest you search around to find a cable that's pre-made. I know they exist for your Altima because I did some looking around.
