CarPC audio to HK BizCD

I have tried to find the answer to this by searching, but haven't figured it out. I intend on installing an EPIA M1000 in the trunk, with a lilliput in the dash. I plan on leaving the audio stock, its currently a business CD with HK speakers, and using the on-board audio. Where is the amp? Where would I plug in the RCA audio plugs? Do I need a blitz?

here are the things going in:
lilliput 7ts
mini-itx in a casetronix c134
epia m1000
256ram
40gb travelstar
dvd slim
usb gps
xm pcr
bluetooth usb
frodoplayer
rolf's ibus interface
rich's custom bezel
d51r optima yellowtop battery

any help? input?

thanks,
avidan

my apologies. wrote the initial post in a rush. here is the part i dont understand. i see that the blitz box allows me to run rca audio in my trunk as the "cd aux". but that requires the headunit (i assume). i plan on pulling the factory headunit, move the a/c portion down to the lower console, and putting the lilliput in the open spot.
what kind of audio connection do i need for the factory amp, and where EXACTLY is it in in my 2000 323ci cab?
thanks,
avidan

If i'm correct all you need is a BMW Aux cable, this plugs into the back of you business unit, takes around 30mins to fit, just call your local dealer and ask them if yours is compatible as it a 2000 model.

I have a business tape unit so it was not, i opted for a Soundlinx adaptor, this is a small black box that replaces the CD changer in the boot for two rca inputs.


its very very easy, which ever way.

But this requires that I keep the headunit. correct? I am going to be removing the headunit entirely. Will this still work?

thanks,

hey, i dont know much, but you could remove your head unit, install ur lilliput, use a USB FM radio conected to the carputer, and run the carputers auido out straight to your factory amp...and use your HK system.

My carputer work has progressed.
Here is the new intended setup

Carputer -> Extigy external audio card -> SVEN4 (new vendetta) -> HK Amp (replacing headunit 4 wires)

Since the VEN4 doesnt need power, I dont need to worry about power near the amp, all my power is gonna be in the trunk. EXCEPT for the lilliput. How have people been wiring the power to the lilliput? I might run a DELAY ON power line to the lilliput, but im still undecided. Does anyone want to share their lilliput experience?

Also, since this install is going into a convertible, ive had to adjust my plans by wiring to the amp which is hidden in the back seat (behind driver) on the side panel. so now i need to rethink my wiring a little bit. anyone want to share their convertible experience?

thanks.
