    are you still running your existing deck? Does it have an AUX in? If so then you can use the HU as the amp to get the signals to your speakers. Else you're looking at getting some amps to connect the speakers to the laptop. Check out the FAQ's.

    The "HU" guizai referred to is the head unit. Where you tune your radio station or pick what CD you want to listen to.

    If you're looking for a budget solution to this, you could always pickup an FM transmitter. Otherwise, what guizai said, you'll need to get some additional hardware or a new headunit.
