Connecting e36 AMP to Sound Card

Hi all,

I am installing computer in my BMW 325iC.
I want to connect the output of my Creative sound blaster live sound card 4 channel(Front Left, FR, RL, RR) to the
stock amp directly via the radio connector (Removed the Head Unit) and sub out to the preamped sub installed in the trunck.

I don't want to install the new amplifier(Even though I bought one).

My question, Will the stock amp work with the sound card outputs? Will I get good sound quality?

Thank you inadvance for any guidance.

Thanks,
KVRR

Why not just plug it in and see for yourself?

Pretty sure that'd be the fastest way to figure it out...

Thank you all

Thank you all for your time. I have decided to install the new amp which I have. As I am not sure what the outcome would be with the existing AMP.

I am installing the system right now. It is in progress..... I will post photos as soon as I finish it.

Regards,
KVRR
