The easiest way to get surround sound in a 12v format is to uses a DVD Receiver. Most of the mid and high range DVD receiver head units come with surround sound built in. These units will play DVD's encoded with 5.1 surround sound. To get true surround sound emulation for non encoded audio, you'll also require independent amplifiers for each each channel (Front, Rear, Center, & Subwoofer) as well as crossovers for each channel, which will let you independently set the gain for each channel.

Here is a "factory" surround sound receiver that was car model specific.
