The chipset is a WM8753 from Wolfson Microelectronics. Acording with
their website:

"The WM8753L is a low power, high quality stereo Codec with integrated
PCM CODEC designed for portable digital telephony applications such as
mobile phone, or headset with Hi-Fi playback capability."

It is 2,5mm. And yes, I think that there is no problem to use an
external amplifier.

Sorry, I don't know if this is possible. But I think that it is.

Hey! If you someday make this sound system for your car, please share
with us some docs/photos/anything  ;)
