oh. use the remote trigger, and either use a relay to trigger the turn-on of the amplifier, or use an ignition line to do the same.
either way will work for what you're doing.
the notebook in this case would be considered the head unit in a way.
what you'd actually want to do is go from the notebook's line level output, to an electronic crossover, then to a 4 channel amp for front/rear components, and a mono amp for the subs.
that'd allow you control over the amplifiers for crossover points, slopes, etc through the crossover, and control of source material and volume through the notebook.
