  1. Check to see if it the hiss is out of the coaxials or the components or both...fade back and front. I might blame the amp, but you said you are on the second one and both had the hiss. Perhaps the x-over for the components is having troubles? It is hard to know without the car being in front of us.
  2. Just reducing the variables here. BCBrassard asked the next logical step, your amp gains being set. You stated that you had check RCAs, did you do this by switching to a different set? Are your RCA cables shielded? If a power cable is run through your car alongside unshielded RCAs the power cable can induce noise into the RCAs. This would most likely show up with the hiss changing with volume changes but could perhaps not. The next step would be the amp grounds...make sure they are clean...and at least as girthy as the positive going in the amp. 4g in should have at
  3. You suggested that the hiss was not volume dependent. Does that mean that when the HU volume is at 0 the hiss is fully audible?
  4. If you are using the ground in the Scion's harness, you shouldn't. Ground it to the chassis. I can't say that it is the problem but it sure could be... https://www.scionlife.com/forums/general-tech-diy-1821/noise-free-audio-tips-47336/
  5. Does the hiss get louder with HU volume? If so, look to the ground from the HU, maybe add another one or improve where it is grounded. The car's wiring harness may not be sufficient ground so you should ground the HU to the chassis and as near to the HU as you can.
  6. By the way, The Communist Manifesto, is not banned in any schools...instead it is taught in all schools unwittingly by many ignorant professors...corrupting our children's minds with poison ideas. You can get it for free at Amazon.... https://www.amazon.com/Manifesto-Communist-Party-Karl-Marx-ebook/dp/B0039GL21I/ref=sr_1_3_twi_kin_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1529095465&sr=8-3&keywords=the+communist+manifesto
  7. I am now an enemy of the State. A criminal, guilty of the most heinous of crimes...thought crime! My red-flagged, black-listed, banned-in-all-schools book arrived in my mailbox...
  8. Just pulled up from buying some juice..to go with the vodka. (not gangsta enuf for the gin). Was jamming to RTJ at reasonably low volume...but enough to piss off my tolerant hippy, peace and love type neighbor...who cussed me out and threatened me with violence if I don't turn that shit down. lol! Fuck that guy!
  9. I bought a used beater jazz style drumkit yesterday but the snare it came with was cheap and made badly. I went to Guitar Center today to buy new heads for it, $20 a piece, $40 total...but before I sprung for the heads I spotted an amazing deal on a newly used snare. OCDP (Orange County Drums and Percussion) 6x14 maple with die cast hoops for an amazing $99! The hoops alone sell for $60 each...fuckin rippin deal! It sounds excellent!
  10. I got a XS battery from Showtime and it got sent in the XS single box with a shipping label stuck on it. It was in good shape when I got it but I remember scoffing at it's chintzy packaging considering how volatile a battery can be.
  11. Looks like Kenwood Excelon's are calibrated to not exceed 1% thd at full volume....at the RCAs. The internal amp, not so much... 5 stars suggestion it is the cleanest radio so far is a false claim though. It only suggests that Kenwood calibrated it properly to be at 1% thd at full volume. I am certain that the Pioneer PRS80 and the Sony RSX-GS9 are cleaner overall.
  12. you cant post anymore bmwking..you just hit 666 posts and now you are fully evil. lol
  13. You play the HU at max clean volume, playing track 4 on the disc the DD-1 came with, then adjust gain on the amp up until the distortion light comes on..then back it down just a tad. Then do it with track 6.
