Hey all can anyone give me a walk through as to how to use the behringer in a car?

cables, 12volt converison, and how to deal with noise issues if any?

I kind of want to see if it is worth the change , so I can plan out my wiring and all and what deck I can use to get the most out of it

Something like a Rane balance buddy will take care of any noise you get as well as provide a down conversion from balanced to unbalanced connections.

I decided not to use one in order to keep transformer's out of the signal path (although the Rane does use some very expensive and high quality transformers), and to keep the output voltage at ~13vrms.

This required purchasing a Navone isolated power supply, and building my own cables according to #2.

You will also need a 12v power supply for the unit, and maybe some L brackets to secure it to the car.

What is #2?

What is the best option to convert from XLR to RCA? Optical to XLR?

Are these options?

That guy is Robert M, he frequents on Car Sound a lot, and occasionally ECA. Pretty smart guy. Also I believe envision something on this forum he makes a kick ass power supply from what people are saying.

There's supposedly a really good isolated 12v power supply for the dcx2496 now, so I think you'd be good without a balance buddy or converter box.

PE told me that when converting from XLR to RCA, there is a 6 dB drop. How can this be addressed?
Don't know about that. I know that you make a single channel with each RCA-->XLR. Ground goes to one pin, signal another, then the shield gets a pin too.

Scroll down to #17.

Their website is a great resource for pretty much everything.
