ive come across this a lot in some peoples systems. check theese few things out first make sure you have the power cable and the rca cables run seperatly the power cable can cause interference with the rca cables causing this also check the back of the deck and if the rca cables are very close to eatch other put some electric tape between them but id think the first problem is more likely. as a rule of thumb most all stereo shops will run the power and remote wire to one side and the rca cables to the other side of the interior of the vehicke so it doesnt create this problem. hope this helps
Ive heard if you have a high current amp 200 amp draw or high then the :direct back to the battery is fine, i.e "it has a clean path to ground".When you ground it through your chassis theres alot of "interference". Thats what Ive been told as i was trying to research my powerhouse amp the Orion Xtr 2250 beast.The guy told me I should do a direct connection since im running slightly higher voltage and I have a strong battery hc1400(wwwkinetikpower.com).So I'ma try this once i get my motor up and running again.
It's alternator whine. Chances are the sub amp isn't that "clean" sorta speak and doesn't filter out noise as well as some amps. Solutions: New alternator, regrounding alternator, turning gain down, regrounding everything, more grounds...that sorta crap can be very hard to get rid fo.
NO, NO,NO this is a clasic ground loop. I've explained "single point grounding already" this will help, besides that you need good rca cables (mine were 74 dollars for 2 channel) and a good amp ,thats it. oh yeah dont run your power next to your rca's (good rca's wont even have that problem).

Finally have finished my stereo conversion on a relatively low budget. I want to thank Steve T for the ideas and his freind Wes who has designed a fantastic speaker upgrade for the MKiV. I mostly appreciate Steve Ishii for helping hammer out the stock wiring plug-n-play...

From what I read my 87 has 4" speakers in the doors and 5" in the rear, correct? Can I fit 5.25" in the front door pods and 6.5" in the rear? or should I go with 4" in the front and 5.25" in the rear?
I will probably use Infinity Kappa speakers and an Infinity Basslink sub.
