What'* the easiest way to integrate your laptop into your car stereo? Do they make something like an FM modulator that you can plug into the headphone plug, then it makes it into an FM signal? Other than that all I can think of is headphone jack, to RCA'* then branching them off to front/rear speaker amps/sub amp. There has to be an easier way than that though.
