    HU processor VS. Carputer

    Everywhere i look there are comparisons about desktop/laptop/mini's all over the place. I have yet to see anything comparing them to existing HU's. I am considering whether or not to go the carputer route or whether or not it would be better to go for a car audio processor. I want extreme SQ, Comptetion lvl. So i guess my question is would a car audio processor give better SQ than a carputer or would it be the other way around?

    Thanks for any input

    All depends on the hardware you use. If you use the onboard audio on the mobo, the SQ isn't going to be that great. But considering all the professional audio equipment available for the PC the potential upside there is most likely greater (whether throwing studio grade stuff at it actually makes a noticable difference over OTS car audio processors I have no idea.) All depends on how much time and money you want to spend, I suppose.

    Would you trust somethin with the computing power of a PS2 or X-Box 360?

    I didn't think about all the studio syle equipment i could put in the car with a car computer. I think that might get a little to expensive right now though considering how a HU processor will only cost me around 700.

    What do you mean would i trust the computing power of a PS2 or xbox 360?

    Sit down, get a coffee and be prepared for a long read. Think you will find the answers you are looking for here:

    can a carputer compete with a head unit for sound quality?
