The BA-BF's have an auxiliary input, available from Ford.

I just plugged the Carputer's speaker output directly into this, then select the ICC to 'AUX' and that's it.

I was thinking that would be the way to go. Of course i'd have to get an amp. I'm just running a head unit at the moment.

i'm thinking of making one also... i reckon getting a 12v car psu would be the way to go.. a lot of them detect battery levels, auto start and shutdown the pc when you start and turn off the car, and do lots of other wonderful things

you should be able to plug your computer into your amplifiers you just need a cord to change the head phone jack into the RCA cables.

the other way is, if you have a cd stacker you can make an aux input, i think there is a tech doc on it here somewhere. i have made it so i have a head phone jack that the ipod plugs into, and there is a switch to flick between AUX and CD stacker.
