  1. No audio Cerwin-Vega VS-120

    I have four VS-150s in my shop that are over 20 years old but still sound great. Try running just one pair off the receiver's front channels and see if it works. The low impedance might tripping some kind of protection with the rear channels on the receiver.

    For the sub I suggest using a line converter that has a dash mounted level control, makes the system easier to use because you don't have to open the trunk/boot every time you want to adjust the sub level. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_142LOC90/Scosche-LOC90-Speaker-to-RCA-Line-Output-Converter.html

    14 gauge is fine for the components and signal inputs to the amp, you'll want something heavier for the sub. Before you do anything find the wiring diagram for your Golf and make sure there isn't any shared grounds in the speaker wiring because it can cause issues with the high level inputs. The best way would be to run two pairs of wire to each front speaker location from the amp, one pair to send the signal to the amp from the factory wiring and the second to power the speaker. It's more work but you don't have to chop up the head unit's wiring harness this way, in fact you wouldn't even need to remove the head unit. For the remote wire for the amp you can tap into any 12v switched wire like one that powers a 12v outlet. It would be best to run the speaker and power wires down different sides of the car but it shouldn't cause much interference if you can't.

    You can't run the speaker output from the head unit into the RCA input on the amp because you'll fry it, only the speaker level input can handle that much power so definitely need to find that connector. Running the amp in 3 channels (50x2 + 150x1) isn't a problem but I wouldn't run four speakers on two channels, run your components and the sub off the amp and either ditch the rears or continue powering them off the head unit. I would also go with a 8 gauge amp wiring kit. If you can't find the connector a couple of these will work, https://www.crutchfield.com/p_142LOC80/Scosche-LOC80.html
  5. Buying phones with cracked screens

    Go for one where it's just the glass digitizer that's broken and LCD still works so there's no surprises.

    The last two Asus boards I've gotten from Micro Center had 2nd gen Ryzen BIOS.
  7. Classic games? Old card

    BF1942 still has a bunch of active servers.
  8. Retro GPU Questions? Geforce 2?

    Nothing really, with the switch to digital TV the onboard analog tuner is useless but the other two cards might be worth a few bucks to the right person.
  9. Retro GPU Questions? Geforce 2?

    That's a older 32MB version of the AiW, I had a 8500 that had 128MB of vRAM.
  10. Retro GPU Questions? Geforce 2?

    The first card looks like a Radeon All in Wonder 8500.
  11. Yamaha MG10XU

    You're correct, USB has 1 stereo input and 1 stereo output. Mine is setup as a DAW and I don't stream much but when I do I use the above setup with a USB headset connected to the gaming PC and then use Voicemeeter Banana to select what goes to the mixer and headset. Your diagram below should work just fine because the USB channel doesn't loop back but in this case the mixer really complicates things because you just use audio over HDMI to the capture device.
  12. old z97 with modern nvme

    I've ran a Gen 3 4x SSD on a Gen 2 2x slot and max read speed was around 750MBs so you'll definitely see a huge performance hit.
  13. Graphics Card Prices

    After owning a few different founders\reference cards I would gladly pay far more than $20 for a cooler that doesn't sound like it's trying to hover around my office.

    One thing you're overlooking, the XU line has a great USB DAC. You also don't want to input a stereo signal into two separate mic channels when you have combined stereo channels at your disposal. I have a MG12XU and the best way to setup for what you're planning would be to input the audio from the gaming PC to one of the two combined stereo channels (5/6 or 7/8) using either a 3.5mm to RCA or 3.5mm to 1/4" cable. Then connect the streaming PC via USB, it's a 2-way connection so by having your headphones plugged into the mixer you'd have the ability to have audio from both PCs plus leave the XLR stereo out open if you wanted to add a pair of powered speakers to your setup. 3.5mm to 1/4", https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-CMP-159-Stereo-Breakout-Cable/dp/B005HGM1D6/ref=pd_sim_267_9?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B005HGM1D6&pd_rd_r=56f01e1d-834c-11e8-906c-89fc5d574e42&pd_rd_w=6IIil&pd_rd_wg=jBdJk&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=7967298517161621930&pf_rd_r=A8QCJ36QVFEMYP6VB1RW&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=A8QCJ36QVFEMYP6VB1RW 3.5mm to RCA, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D5H8JW0/ref=sspa_dk_detail_3?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01D5H8JW0&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=1713835751726239774&pf_rd_r=0FKG94FAEWN1GX9H8RVD&pd_rd_wg=AmgUw&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&pd_rd_w=UQcd5&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pd_rd_r=72a88875-8350-11e8-88f0-530297bd69ef Win10 driver and instructions, http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/products/mixers/mg_xu/support/driver/
