    I would like 5.1 in my car. I found a 1/2 din in-dash speaker w/ built in amplifier. Can I run the audio from the center/sub into both the center speaker and my amp for my subs? What would I need, just a RCA spliter? By splitting the signal would I lose any sound quality?

    Yes I've searched the forums some for an answer, I know people are running 5.1 sound cards but no one really has said if they are using the center speaker.

    My headunit has 4 RCA female inputs (front left and right,rear left and right). I am going to buy a mobo with either 5.1 or 6 channel sound, however all of the boards that I have seen have only a single output. How do you go from a single output to the 4 input headunit and still get the proper sound?

    In the via epia mobos there is an option in sound properties that turns line out and mic in two line ins.

    Hey,

    I've got some noobish question which I hope someone may be able to answer.

    Firstly they are regarding hooking a laptop up the headunits sound.

    OK 1st question is the wire on the diagram (#4) aux adaptor - that connects to the back of the head unit?

    Secondly the headunit which I have is a Pioneer DEH-P3500MP (http://www.car-audio-uk.net/car_head..._Cd_Player.htm) and as far as I know it has no aux input, but I think you can buy an IP bus in order to enable AUX. So for my headunit I would have to buy the IP BUS then connect that to the back of the headunit then connect that to the laptop through the stereo rca cables?

    Thanks

    Hey Lucky...Yes, you are correct in both counts.

    I have the pioneer 7600 and am currently using ip-bus adapter for aux in with my ipod...which works just like your line out from PC sound card.

    I have a 4channel amp for the front/rear speakers wired in already and am getting another 2 amps for a pair of 12" subs, so would i just wire to the 4channel amp?

    I'm not too sure on how to wire up the subs as it is, does anyone have a diagram to help?

    Also by using: Y adapter with RCA jacks, Y adapter 1 phono plug to dual RCA jacks

    does that mean i can effectively use anything with a headphone output i.e. portable mp3 player etc?

    probably already discussed in the 5 pages, but I stopped reading at first page

    really, you will get sound using a 1/8 to RCA converter, but the sound quality is terrible compared to using a digital output into a digital to analog converter and into your amp(s)

    I really wouldn't go splitting the signals. Consider upgrading your sound card first. What sound card are you using? Is it only stereo? If it's multiple (4, 5.1,etc) channel you can use another output. A clean 5.1 soundcard for under $50 is Turtle Beach Santa Cruz.

    Check your primary 4 channel amp. It might have outputs to go into an auxilary amp.
